May is National Bike Month - Bike Month 2019 kicks off on Monday, May 27 and continues until the end of June, with hundreds of ways to celebrate across Canada. National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of cycling and encourage more folks to give it a try. Our goal at Higgins Insurance during bike month is to create awareness about safety. Cyclists face the same hazards as vehicles. Other cyclists, pedestrians, falling objects, vehicles, animals, road construction, road conditions, weather etc are examples of these hazards.
To highlight National Bike Month we have interviewed 3 cyclists in the community; Sophie Burry, an upcoming Mountain Bike Rider, Shelley Wood who cycled across Canada to raise awareness and money for childrens’ cancer and Wayne Arrowsmith who was instrumental in getting the One Meter Law passed in New Brunswick.

Let’s figure that out together, shall we?
National Police week began in 1970 as a way for police to connect with their communities and increase awareness about services they provide. Community policing is at the heart of police week, as it’s an opportunity for police and community members to get know each other.
