Volunteers needed to help City plan for future of cycling

Remember what it was like to learn to ride a bike for the first time? They told you it’s something you’d never forget and it would make for a lifetime of fun.

The City of Calgary
needs help from interested citizens to plan a bicycle-friendly city for all to enjoy – whether to commute to work or school, run errands or just for the joy of it – The City is looking for a citizen’s perspective to make changes that will get more people cycling in Calgary.

“Calgarians have told us they want more places that are bicycle friendly,” says Nicole Jensen, Transportation Planner. “To this end, we are looking for people of all ages and all cycling abilities to volunteer for a committee to provide input. We want to know what are the most important issues that prevent us from cycling?”

The input The City gathers will be used to guide a strategy that will go to City Council for approval and put the city well on its way to becoming a place where cycling is a choice for more Calgarians.
