With the warm weather around the corner, everyone is excited to get back on those bike paths again (unless you've been winter biking lol). Along with the change in the season, we also have new events coming up where we'll need your help :) If you would like to volunteer to either of the events below, please email us as soon as you can and get involved in your biking community!
Calgarians for Transportation Choice - Streetfight: A Handbook to the Urban Revolution with Janette Sadik Khan
Winter is drawing to a close, but there are still significant amounts of snow, ice and gravel on Calgary streets, including on Calgary’s on-street bikeways. Through their Snow and Ice Control Policy, the City of Calgary has committed to clearing on-street bikeways to the following standards:
Centre City Cycle Track Network - Priority 1 - 90 per cent clear of snow and ice by the end of the first 24 hours after the snow has stopped.
All On-street Marked Bike Lanes - Priority 2 - cleared of snow and ice to a safe travel width within 48 hours after the snow has stopped.
