Bike Day In Canada - Bike Summit

Join Bike Calgary at the Calgary Public Library Downtown John Dutton Theatre to attend a live viewing party of the 1st ever National Bike Summit! 

Stick around to chat with attendees, and find out how you can get involved this summer! There will be information for both Bike Calgary membership and Canada Bikes membership at the event. 

 

Canada Bikes, is a pan-Canadian non-profit organization, that advocates for increased support for everyday cycling in Canada. We are hosting the 1st National Bike Summit on Parliament Hill onThursday, June 1st, 2017 as part of the 6th annual Bike Day on the Hill celebration.

 

The Bike Summit is a first ever opportunity for stakeholders from across Canada to join in a national conversation on the importance of federal support for cycling in Canada, particularly the development of a National Cycling Strategy and funding for cycling infrastructure. The Bike Summit will kick off with a welcome to delegates and an overview of progress on a National Cycling Strategy and what next steps need to occur. We will then invite eight speakers, representing different cycling stakeholders, to speak to the questions ‘Why is Federal support for a National Cycling Strategy (NCS) for Canada, including funding for cycling infrastructure, important to the people and/or organization you represent? What should the federal government consider when developing the NCS?’ Each speaker will be asked to present for three minutes, using up to three slides to support their presentation. Following this, all delegates will be invited to discuss the key elements that emerged from the presentations and contribute to a summary document.

Thursday, June 1, 2017 - 12:30 to 16:00

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.
