Dear volunteer pedestrian and cyclist models of the past and future,
We need you!
A pedestrian and cyclist photo shoot has been scheduled for the morning of Wednesday March 11 and Thursday March 19. The purpose of the photo shoot is to show Calgarians walking and cycling for transportation, even in winter weather.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact me at this email address or cell phone 403-268-1158. Please wear bright or patterned outerwear, avoiding black, dark blue or white coats as much as possible!
The potential schedule for Wednesday March 11 is as follows:

11 am to 12:30pm
Bike lane on 9A Street NW west of the LRT tracks (near Sunnyside Safeway): female cyclist in business attire. On a day of adverse weather, casual attire is OK.
