As this website attests, Mississippi Mills has already made great progress in establishing itself as a bicycle friendly community.
In 2016, Mississippi Mills was awarded Bronze level status in The Bicycle Friendly Community Award (BFC) Program of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition in Canada.
“Share the Road is proud to recognize municipalities that are choosing to invest in cycling,” said Jamie Stuckless, Executive Director of Share the Road. “We know from our research that 70% of Ontarians agree that more people would bike if there was more and better cycling infrastructure in their community. The growing list of Bicycle Friendly Communities are heeding that call, providing their residents with safer, better connected streets that accommodate all road users.”
“In Mississippi Mills we see municipal politicians and staff working with bike clubs, public health and community groups to organize an annual Bike Month that has been a catalyst for change over the past 8 years.”
