A reliable form of transportation. A fun form of exercise. A great way to explore and spend time outside. These are all great reasons to choose to get on your bike, and Saint John invests in the infrastructure to make it happen for residents. Saint John’s growing bikeway network includes 25 kms of dedicated or shared bicycle lanes in addition to an extensive trail system that includes our famous Harbour Passage and Rockwood Park.
The Great Trail (Trans Canada)
Saint John’s portion of the Trans Canada Trail extends from the towns of Grand Bay-Westfield to Rothesay. It includes a mix of dedicated bike lanes, shared lanes, as well as off-road trails.
Campus Harbour Connection
The Campus Harbour Connection provides cyclists in Saint John with a route linking the UNB Saint John campus and Saint John Regional Hospital area with uptown Saint John and points in between. It’s a 4.5 km long arterial of dedicated bike lanes and shared use and connects to Harbour Passage. It’s the first comprehensive bike route in the city.
In addition to 60 km of trails, Rockwood Park is home to a Mountain Bike Skills Park with a variety of obstacles and features designed to increase the skills and confidence of beginner mountain bikers. The skills park has been built to meet IMBA standards and provide a challenging and rewarding experience for mountain bikers of all ages and abilities.
