There is nothing else quite like the thigh burning drudgery of an uphill climb, followed by the mellow coast of a gentle decline. Humanity has yet to invent a vehicle that can rival the elegance, fuel efficiency and simplicity of the humble bicycle.
Bike for pleasure, for transportation, or to explore your neighbourhood from a different vantage point. Bike because it’s good for the planet and your waistline. Bike because the wind through your hair is one of life’s simple pleasures, and because ogling spandex-clad race enthusiasts is fun, too!
If you’re free on August 23, and love to cycle, you must check out this event:
Ride the Road Tour and Bike Festival
I'll be there, wind in my hair!
Also, look for the Calgary Public Library tent. We'll be there to tell you about our green initiatives, and answer any questions you may have!
