Celebrate 100 years of Pedal Powered Recreation at Canada Dayyyc
This Sunday, July 1st, The City’s REC 100 team will be in Eau Claire for the Canada Day festivities, and will kick off cycling month in July.
The City of Calgary Recreation is celebrating 100 years of community contribution in 2012, with twelve monthly themes and a year of planned activities throughout 2012.
If you like to cycle, and want to take part in the Canada Day festivities downtown, we encourage you to bike to Canada Dayyyc from our Park & Pedal lots at Max Bell Arena and the Pumphouse Theatre. The Park & Pedal lots will provide information about Calgary’s favourite two wheeled pastime, connect you to the cycling community in Calgary, and help make the trip into the downtown core a breeze. The Bike Shop will be on hand at both Park & Pedal lots to give your bikes a tune up.
Once you reach downtown, you can explore all of the festivities at RiverWalk, Prince’s Island Park, CALGARY EATS! at Olympic Plaza and visit the REC 100 tent at Eau Claire to participate in some old fashioned games and a scavenger hunt. Download the Canada Dayyyc app or visit Calgary.ca/canadaday to find out about all the exciting events taking place.
Calgary is home to the most extensive pathway system in North America with over 700 km’s of pathways connecting communities all over the city. Cycling the pathway is a unique recreational opportunity that the whole family can enjoy. July is a perfect month to get out, and see where the pathway takes you. The pathway system connects many communities to Recreations arenas, pools, athletics parks and the Glenmore Reservoir.
Participate, share and be inspired. There’s more than you think at Calgary.ca/rec100 in 2012.
