Strava Drawing Challenge

Now extended through the month of June.

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.

City of Lethbridge Engagement Session

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.
