As this website attests, Mississippi Mills has already made great progress in establishing itself as a bicycle friendly community.
Local partners are working together to aim for Bronze Status for Mississippi Mills in The Bicycle Friendly Community Award (BFC) Program of the Share the Road Cycling Coalition in Canada. Currently, Ottawa and Toronto are the only communities with Gold status.
Mississippi Mills was given honourable mention in 2014 and included in Share the Roads’ Bicycle-friendly Communities Yearbook this year. Here is the feedback we received from our 2014 application:

We feel that Bronze Bicycle-Friendly Status would be a tremendous honour for our rural community and vow to continue in this pursuit until we reach platinum!
