Northmount Drive Improvements

The City of Calgary is planning to re-pave Northmount Drive, and they are considering what sort of pedestrian and cycling improvements should be included.

We are asking all Bike Calgary members interested in this topic (whether you are a resident or a periodic user of the area) to let the Triwood Community Association and the ward Councillor know that you'd like cycling lanes included in the re-paving work.

Bike Calgary Community Reps & Walk21 Projects

Bike Calgary Community Reps


The Bike Calgary Community Engagement Project was created to initiate dialogue with Calgary’s 140+ communities, thousands of businesses and other organizations to build awareness of cycling issues, provide education for new cyclists and build support for cyclists, and to provide city-wide representation for  advocacy positions of Bike Calgary. By directly engaging community members and harnessing existing grassroots support for cycling within communities, we will achieve the larger goals of a broad Calgary-wide cycling network "Connecting Calgary's Communities".
