Wheels are turning in Huron East……

Town of Seaforth looks to active transportation for a healthier lifestyle.

Bringing citizens together to increase mobility and public space can create more vibrant, healthy, and open-minded communities,” according to Gil Penalosa, Founder of “8 80 Cities. He advocates that creating safe and happy communities that prioritize people’s well-being and develop public spaces that are great for an 8-year-old to an 80-year-old, will inevitably become great for all people.

Following this lead, the Municipality of Huron East is embracing the approach of  “8 80 Cities” by developing cycling trails throughout the Town of Seaforth.  As a result of provincial-federal gas tax funding and future road construction, the opportunity to launch this initiative was financially feasible. This will be a first for Huron County, with Seaforth becoming a model for other urban communities within the county looking to create their own bike routes.

To celebrate, Huron East is partnering with the Huron County Health Unit, and 360 Bikes & Boards of Goderich by hosting a mini bike rally Tuesday, June 12th at 11:30 am behind Seaforth Town Hall (adjacent to Victoria Park).

All members of the public are invited to experience the potential of active transportation in this historic town of 2,300 people. Come ride the back streets of Seaforth, as we celebrate “Bike Month” and hear of future plans for our community.

Come join the FUN….everyone is welcome!
