This is the official start of BIKEFEST YQL 2019! Throughout the month of May, BikeBridge challenges all Lethbian cyclists to get creative and make some Strava GPS drawings.
The top voted drawing wins a classic Miele bike that’s perfect for commuting around town (donated by @albertabikeswap) but we also have tons of gift cards from Sonder and swag from bikemaps.org to give away to all participants. Just post your Strava drawing to social media and tag @bikebridge or #bikebridgeYQL. Submit your drawings before June 1 and we will announce the winner in early June.
To participate, just join the BikeBridge Strava Group and start drawing/riding. If you’re not a Strava user, you can sign up at strava.com, or download the Strava app for your smart phone. It’s free to sign up and use.
Join this family-friendly ride through Lethbridge history, suitable for cyclists of all ages and abilities.
Meet at the corner of 6th Ave. and 9th Street South (south of 6th Ave) at 6:30 pm. This year’s speakers include Andrew Chernevych, Jane Edmundson, Kevin MacLean, Paige Rosner and Ross Kilgour. The route will take cyclists down the 7th Avenue Bike Boulevard toward Henderson Lake, with the ride ending at Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden for tea!
March 12 from 3 to 7 pm at City Hall there will be a public engagement session that addresses many things, but one of interest is a possible shift for one of the next bike lanes to go down 7th Street South (instead of 6th Street) for better connectivity. Let them know what you think! Online feedback tool will also go live soon.
Join us to celebrate another year of cycling culture in Lethbridge at the BikeBridge Cycling Association annual general meeting. We are looking for multiple new board members this year to help continue building this great cycling community with events, advocacy and more!
Please consider joining us at the AGM – where there will be free pizza and beer for all who attend! If you have any questions about joining the board, please email [email protected] for more info.
There are quite a few spots available to help out with the bike valet service and we really need the help as it is very popular with folks biking into Henderson Lake to avoid all the parking congestion. Please sign up using this Google Sheet.
