Cycling Across Canada – How Canadian cities are promoting cycling for people of all ages and abilities

Vancouver is one of the most livable and bicycle-friendly cities in North America. But what are other cities across Canada doing to promote cycling? Join us at this fun, informal event to learn about the state of cycling in cities across Canada, ranging from Calgary’s wildly successful City Centre Cycle Track Network pilot project, to Winnipeg’s award-winning long-range active transportation plan and Victoria’s plan to become the world’s best small city for cycling by 2018, among others.


This evening event will include short pecha kucha presentations from politicians, municipal staff, and cycling advocates from cities across Canada, including Victoria, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax. Presentations will be followed by a discussion moderated by Darren Davis.

Appetizers and drinks will be provided.
