Week 4 tips and motivation: Try getting around using active transportation!

Congratulations on making it to Week 4!

In addition to being Recreation and Parks month, June is also Bike Month.

Bike Month presents an opportunity to get out for a ride on your bike, try riding for the first time, or participate in other forms of active transportation, like walking! Active transportation is any form of human-powered transportation. Not only is it good for your health, but it’s also good for your wallet as it saves money on gas and parking.

Why not try biking in Barrie?

Our transit is bike-friendly! There are bike racks on all Barrie Transit buses, which are free, easy to use and have instruction labels to help. The City has bicycle locking posts and racks on Dunlop Street and at Meridian Square, and there are also bike racks at City Hall, all recreation centres, library branches, the transit terminal and both GO Stations.

Did you know? Barrie has over 47 km of cycling infrastructure in addition to cycling trails located in City parks.

When riding, we recommend wearing the proper protective equipment including your helmet to stay safe, and be sure to stick to the roads, paths and trails that match your skill level.

Let us know how you’re actively getting around the city this week by posting a photo or story!
