Navigate the Road - Drive and Cycle
Edmonton’s bike network is growing. This year the City of Edmonton will install 20 km of on-street bike routes throughout the city, adding to the existing 46 km built since 2010. It’s part of a plan to create an integrated bicycle network consisting of close to 500 km of on-street cycling facilities within the next 10 to 20 years.
Bike infrastructure encourages cyclists to take to the streets, with 14% of Edmontonians already reporting more bike usage to nearby destination points because of the bike lanes that have been installed in their neighbourhoods. Cycling is a great way to travel more sustainably. It also provides the perfect opportunity to stay active and adopt a healthy living lifestyle.
