What is the Cycling Master Plan?

    The creation of Kincardine’s Cycling Master Plan was approved by Council in 2019. The Plan as proposed imagines a future for Kincardine where trails and cycling routes are well connected, and where cycling provides a viable transportation option for residents and visitors alike. The Cycling Master Plan aims to identify ways to better connect the Municipality’s existing trails with key destinations in the community, and develop several policies and programs to support and encourage cycling. 

    Who is this project for?

    Kincardine's Cycling Master Plan is a project for everyone. By coming together to create a bicycle-friendly future for Kincardine, we are working to provide options for healthy, active living and more ways for people to move so they don't have to drive. This benefits everyone in our communities by helping to reduce traffic, save money, improve local air quality, supporting local shopping, build on our reputation as an active, healthy community and makes travel easier and safer for those who can’t drive, especially children. 

    What parts of the municipality will the project look at?

    The Cycling Master Plan is a plan for the whole municipality. This project will look at ways to make all of Kincardine's neighbourhoods bicycle -friendly

    What can cycling do for Kincardine?

    By developing a bicycle friendly municipality, we are working toward providing more transportation options to Kincardine residents and creating important facilities for recreation and exercise. Cycling supports active lifestyles, improves physical and mental health, protects our environment and is fun! Building bicycle friendly neighbourhoods that encourage more people to use bicycles may also contribute to our community’s prosperity by reducing traffic congestion, reducing transportation and health costs, contributing to vibrant neighbourhoods and encouraging spending at nearby local businesses.
