Windsor's New Wastewater Treatment Facility Construction Notice
- Published: Monday, 11 May 2015 09:20
Bicycling can be a lot of fun - for children and adults. It’s a good way to get some exercise, it’s good for the environment (when compared to driving) It’s also a fun way for parents and children to spend time together. Windsor Town RCMP members certainly encourage people to get out there and pedal - as long as they do it safely.
Windsor RCMP will be conducting bicycle patrols in the Town of Windsor enforcing helmet laws. Outside of the town limits the rules still apply to all bicyclists and the RCMP will be enforcing helmet laws there as well.
Any discussion on bike safety should start and end with a helmet. In Nova Scotia, everyone is supposed to wear an approved helmet. It’s the law in this province, and getting caught without one could result in a fine.
It also provides parents with an opportunity to teach by example. If a child sees mom or dad wearing a helmet, they’re more likely to do the same.
Parents and children both should be aware of the proper hand signals when they’re out biking.
Information on hand signals, including pictures, can be found online at http://www.novascotia.ca/sns/pdf/ans-rmv-bicycle-safety.pdf
For anyone biking in traffic, it’s important to remember that cyclists and motorist need to share the road.
It’s true that motorists should be watching for cyclists, but it’s also true that cyclists need to obey the rules of the road, and take responsibility for their actions. Before making a lane change on a bicycle, turn your head to do a shoulder check to ensure your lane is clear before moving into it, and then check again before making the turn.
When merging into traffic, make eye contact with the motorist to ensure they see you. Avoid travelling in a driver’s blind spot, don’t ride beside trucks or other large vehicles, and don’t weave between parked cars. Otherwise, a motorist may lose sight of you and there could be a collision if you suddenly reappear in traffic unexpectedly.
It’s nothing new to hear police telling motorists to slow down for reasons of safety,
and the same message applies to cyclists as well. Slow down, follow the rules of the road, and arrive safely.

Day 8 - 265 years is a long time...(and today is my last day)...
I will see you very soon. I'll be sad to leave Windsor...the Little Town of Big Firsts. But this is my last day and my last diary entry.
Mayor Paul showed me this picture of Fort Edward...I asked if he would change the name to Fort Flat Daniel but he said he couldn't. Anyways, he said this is the oldest surviving blockhouse of its kind anywhere in North America...it is 265 years old...that's even way older than you Ms. Carle. For information on Fort Edward, click here. It's real interesting!
Had a wonderful time here, thanks for sending me, and thank-you Windsor. Will be home soon Ms. Carle.

Day 7 - Feelin' Royal
Oyez...Oyez! (I learned that from Lloyd the Town Crier)
I'm still getting the royal treatment here in Windsor. This is Princess Allison and her two attendants; they are really nice.
Mayor Paul took me as his special guest to the Apple Blossom Princess Tea. Don't worry Ms Carle, I didn't drink any tea...I only drank real apple cider made right here in the Annapolis Valley. They grow tons of apples here and the fresh apple cider is delicious. And then I got my picture taken with all the Apple Blossom princesses and Queen Annapolisa. How sweet is that?...about as sweet as real apple cider!
Well, off we go on to another adventure. Talk to you tomorrow. Daniel
