On February 1, 2014, Berry Architecture is hosting an Indoor Cycling “Wellness Day” to raise funds for the Canadian Mental Health Association and Central Alberta Brain Injury Society. We will have two former pro cyclists, Tyler Hamilton and Alex Stieda, leading 4 spin bike clinics at the Collicutt Centre in Red Deer, 3031- 30th Avenue. The clinic schedule is:
This separated bike lanes proposal makes sense from a networking perspective and I urge the City to move quickly in implementing it.For a more effective network and as part of implementing this facility, the City should also remove the barrier for cyclists to use Stephens Walk as a connector to this separated bike lane and network this facility with the neighbouring westbound C-Train stations.
Like prancing, high-strung horses emerging from a starting gate in a race, drivers enter 10th Ave SW and scream down the street without care of bike lane pavement markings or respect for approaching cyclists. Forward progress at fast speed must not be interfered with. Bike lanes provide space for screaming past a vehicle ahead or one making a turn, without care, awareness, comfort, and feeling of safety of approaching cyclists.
