Blue Route Hubs
The Blue Route Hubs Project aims to link residents to the places they want to go by walking, rolling, or cycling, and connect the provincial Blue Route cycling network to community centres across the province. By working with the community, plans are created for a network of safe cycling infrastructure that allows locals and visitors to travel to the places they most want to visit by bike. We are focusing efforts in communities linked to the Blue Route to advance Nova Scotia’s provincial cycling network.
Round 1 – Partner Communities
In 2018/19 we worked with three municipalities on Nova Scotia’s South Shore to develop cycling network plans. These plans are now complete. Learn more about the plans for each community by clicking on the links below (coming soon).

Round 2 – Partner Communities
In 2020/21 we are working with the Towns of Wolfville, Port Hawkesbury, and New Glasgow to develop cycling network plans. This work is still underway and there are opportunities for residents to share input! Click on the links below (coming soon) to learn more about the planning process for these communities and what phases the projects are in currently.

Round 3 – Seeking Partners
We are looking for municipal partners for Round 3 of our Hubs project for 2021/22. Would your town like professional support from Bicycle Nova Scotia’s Active Transportation Planner to develop a network of bike routes that would be safe and comfortable for people of all ages and people with disabilities (All Ages and Abilities, or AAA)?
