We're launching a new website!

In the next week or so, Bike Calgary will be launching its new website. We are proud to be hosted on a Canadian server, with a local Calgary-based company, hostedincanada.com.With the switch over to the new service provider and the new format, users will have to re-activitate their log-in information, including creating a new password. We encourage everyone to keep an eye on this site to see the new page! Try out our updated commenting tool to participate in a conversation with other Calgary cyclists, and read the news posts. While we have tried to update as much information as possible, there is likely going to be some out-of-date information. If you find old links or info, feel free to let us know at admin@bikecalgary.org.

BOW RIVER PATHWAY CLOSURES - 14th Street NW to 29th Street NW

The closure of the north side Bow River Pathway between 14th Street and 29th Street NW has caught many people off-guard and, due to the suddenness of the closure and the lack of clear detour signage, has caused understandable frustration.

Bike Calgary recognizes that the Bow River Pathway is arguably one of the most popular active travel and recreation corridors for Calgarians, particularly for Calgarians looking to travel efficiently and comfortably by bike between the northwest and downtown. People of all ages and all experience levels depend upon it to get them around safely. As such, we have been in communication with City staff, advocating for a detour that preserves and similar level of active mode connectivity as the pathway, that is easy to follow, safe and comfortable, and that provides equitable travel opportunities for all modes.


In relation to the closure, City staff provided Bike Calgary with the following map outlining the closures and suggested cycling and pedestrian detours for the mid-July to mid-October duration of the closure.
