Cycling in Charlottetown

The City of Charlottetown is striving to reduce fossil fuel dependency and to promote active, healthy lifestyles for residents. Cycling is a great way to do both of these things and that is why we want to create a culture of active transportation in our City. 

In recent years we have added more bike racks around the City, promoted cycling safety with bike rodeos, developed a cycling map for Charlottetown, and regularly celebrate cycling through annual events and contests.

The City and the Province are currently working to enhance connectivity among existing designated cycling lanes.  The City of Charlottetown recently applied for federal funding to develop a two-way designated cycling lane on Fitzroy Street which would connect the Confederation trail at Joe Ghiz Park to the Victoria Park cycling lane. 

Cycling isn’t only practical and good for the environment and good for your health …it’s fun, too.  Do you bike in Charlottetown? Tell us about your experience and share photos of your cycling journey on social media with the hashtag #IBikeChTown!!
