As part of our ongoing efforts to promote safe cycling infrastructure in Calgary, Calgarians for Cycle Tracks conducted a candidate survey in key wards for the 2017 municipal election. Calgary has made significant progress since 2013 with the opening of the Cycle Track Network, which has logged over a million trips, increased the proportion of people cycling downtown as well as the number of female, youth and elderly riders.
But we know the network is incomplete. It ends abruptly at 17th Avenue SW, 11th Street SW, 4th Street SE and 3rd Avenue SW. That's why it's important that the next City Council we elect understands the importance of extending the network to bring safe cycling infrastructure to more neighbourhoods.
