HamOnt Healthy Loops

During the early stages of the pandemic lockdown, we noticed that our cycling trips turned into neighbourhood loops closer to home.

As a result, we developed Healthy Loops: bike routes in your neighbourhood that are safe and enjoyable to cycle. They typically include bike lanes or paths and residential streets so that people of all ages and abilities are more comfortable riding. Even better if the loops connect to local businesses or green spaces!

Being active outdoors is a great way to connect to your neighbourhood. Making trips by bicycle to a local park, to visit someone, or to simply keep your body moving can also bring many benefits to your physical and mental health. 

If you’ve spent some time exploring Hamilton's different neighbourhoods by bicycle, or have a favourite route to stay active, we want to hear from you!

SHARE YOUR HAMONT HEALTHY LOOPS: Send your Healthy Loop to [email protected] and we will add it to our HamOnt Healthy Loops map.
