Call for Volunteers: Make Cycling Better in Calgary!

More volunteers means we can get more done! We have all kinds of opportunities. Email and let’s find one that fits you.

November 2022 – Urgent Call

Our most urgent one-time volunteer need is for the 2023-2026 City of Calgary Budget Sessions. Council is meeting November 21-25 to decide the City budget priorities for the next four years. Bike Calgary wants to make sure Council hears loud and clear that Active Transportation is a priority for Calgarians.

There are a couple of options to do this:

  1. Send a message to your City Councilor as per: URGENT CALL-OUT: November 21-25 is budget week at the City of Calgary – Let your voices be heard! – Bike Calgary
  2. Speak directly to Council in support of Active Transportation during their public hearings – we’ll help you sign-up and get ready. 
  3. If the spotlight isn’t for you, you can help us review the proposed budget document and draft our response.

Email with the subject “Municipal Budget” if you can help.
