Wheels in motion for Calgary's Centre City cycle track network

The City is planning an east-west/north-south network of cycle tracks in the Centre City. It will connect the Elbow River and Bow River pathways through the downtown area, and to its many destinations such as office buildings, commercial districts, arts and recreation places and residential communities. Ultimately, the cycle track network will improve transportation choices for Calgarians and make roadways safer for people who walk, bike or drive in the Centre City.

The City has scheduled events in the Centre City to talk about planning the cycle track network with Calgarians who live, work, and travel in the area. Here’s where you can get involved:

- CORE shopping Centre, +15 level by Holt Renfrew (324, 8 Ave. S.W.) - Thursday, Nov. 28 to Friday, Dec. 6, all day (staff available over weekday lunch hours, except the dates listed below)

- Mountain Equipment Coop (830, 10 Ave. S.W.) - Saturday, Nov. 30, noon - 4 p.m.

- Nexen Building, main floor lobby (801, 7 Ave. S.W.)- Tuesday, Dec. 3, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

- Mountain Equipment Coop - Wednesday, Dec. 4, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

- Eighth Avenue Place, +15 level (525, 8 Ave. S.W.) - Thursday, Dec. 5, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

You’ll see the streets and avenues that The City is considering for an east-west/north-south cycle track network. You’ll also see 1 Street S.E. as the street chosen for the next cycle track, scheduled to begin construction in 2014. Find out more and provide your feedback at
