Ward and Community Representative Orientation / Planning Session

Ward reps are Bike Calgary’s vital links to Calgary’s communities.  They serve as points of contact for cyclists in Calgary’s neighborhoods, and alert the Bike Calgary’s Board of Directors  or Infrastructure Task Group to cycling-related issues in their areas. Ward reps can also be Bike Calgary’s representatives at organization such as large employers or one of Calgary’s colleges or universities.  They work with the Board, the city, community associations, and councillors to resolve issues and to improve cycling in Calgary’s communities.

Does your community have a Bike Calgary representative? If this sounds like the volunteer opportunity you have…

While we never caught up to the Swedes, we finished in 14th place in the Winter Bike to Work online competition, even though we know from our inner city bike counters we would have topped them all ;) We have two prize packs including a $25.00 Sidewalk Citizen Gift Card, a Winter Cycling Congress T-Shirt and a copy of Streetfight. The winning numbers are numbers 781473 and 781504. Please contact kimberley@bikecalgary.org with a picture of your ticket to claim! A sincere thank you to everyone that joined us in the mall,…
