Last week, HASTe staff attended the 2nd Annual Cycling Action Forum, hosted by TransLink in New Westminster, BC.
The theme for this year's forum was "Cycling – Prescription for a Healthy Mind, Body and Region." Cycling proponents - planners, advocates, researchers, health specialists, etc. - from communities across Metro Vancouver came together for an afternoon of ideas and discussions. The goal: to understand the many health benefits that can be gained from cycling - both by individuals and their communities - and forge partnerships between transportation and health sectors to better communicate these benefits.
