End of Year Message

I want to take this opportunity to thank Bike Calgary's directors and volunteers for their hard work in ensuring that Bike Calgary is effectively representing the concerns of Calgary Cyclists to Council and City Administration.

I would also like to thank our partner organizations, under the Bike Calgary Advocacy umbrella, Elbow Valley Cycle Club, Bike Root Campus Bicycle Society of Calgary, Alberta Randonneurs, Good Life Community Bike Shop and the Sustainable Alberta Association/Commuter Challenge for their continued support.

2011 has been an exciting year for cycling in Calgary with the buzz really getting going with the public release of the Cycling Strategy Report and Pathway Safety Review Report. The last few months have been particularly busy with our involvement in the West LRT cycle network improvements, working towards ensuring the floating bike lanes on 10th Avenue meet the needs of cyclists and participating with the City to develop a revised plan for a Centre City Cycle Network.

Through this we have received a number of messages of thanks via, email and in personal conversation. It is encouraging to know that we are making a difference we appreciate your support. We ask those of you following our efforts to help out by continuing to provide feeback via the website forums, volunteering to assist with some of our initiatives or simply taking a few moments to voice your support for improved cycling infrastructure to your elected representatives. Ensuring Calgary and surrounding areas has a safe, functional and efficient transportation and recreational cycle network is important to the future of our City. We look forward to seeing more of our ideas put into action in the coming year.

Happy Holidays!

Brent Clark

Bike Calgary, President
