We envision Parry Sound Area communities that are fun, healthy and safe places in which to live, work and play.
Our mission is to make bicycling, walking and wheeling so safe, convenient and fun that people choose clean, active modes of travel and recreation.
Building a movement around active transportation
- We are dedicated volunteers and organizations.
- We host events like the Fall Fun Ride, and promote provincial and national campaigns like Bike Month to celebrate active transportation.
- We build support for policy that prioritizes and protects bicyclists and pedestrians.
- We promote related activities of our community partners.
- We research trends in public use of active transportation.
Making walking and cycling safer

- We promote opportunities to include cycling and pedestrian facilities in the development and re-construction of infrastructure.
- We work with our community and municipal partners to plan, gather information, secure funding, and celebrate success.
