Share the Road Campaign

As TraC works towards better transportation choices for the Sunshine Coast, we are conducting an "I Share the Road" campaign that calls upon ALL road users - motorized vehicle drivers, cyclists and pedestrians - to be safe, responsible and courteous on our roads. 

There are several ways you can participate in this campaign. You can pick up a free bumper and bike sticker at our table during the Transportation Initiators Group's information session in Sechelt on Wednesday or in Gibsons on Saturday. You can also help us hand out the stickers and collect 
people's commitments to share the road. Sign up for a 2 hour shift between 10am and 4pm (or just drop by and say hi):

Wed. October 1st at Trail Bay Mall

Bike Lane Cleaning - Wednesday April 16

Eight participants showed up and cleared 630 meters of bike lane along Field Road on April 16th, 2014. The purpose of these clearing the bike lane events is to make the roads safer for cycling and show the Ministry of Transportation that safe bike lanes are a priority to our community.

Field Road doesn't link to any School but it is the cycle route for one of the largest and most active Bike to Work teams during the last several years.
