Bike Calgary would like to acknowledge several businesses that go out of their way to support cycling safety and cycle commuting.

  • Lafarge – hosted a cycling safety event demonstrating cement truck blind spots and the additions to their trucks to help protect cyclists (check out the orange bars installed between the front and rear wheels).
  • Brookfield Properties does a great job of offering secure bicycle parking in most of its buildings.
  • If your building doesn’t have secure bicycle parking for its tenants, talk to your building owner or landlord. Many are interested in offering this value-added service, but may not be sure if it would be used. Also advocate for a showering facility in one of the washrooms and also a place to leave your clothes to dry.
