The City is deeply committed to building a network for bike travel that complements our other modes of transportation and gives Edmontonians choices about how they can get around. The revised Bike Plan has been developed with extensive consultation over the last few years. But in context of the rapidly changing circumstances that have emerged in 2020, we want to take this opportunity to add some further internal review. As soon as we’ve completed this review, we will repost the Bike Plan to our website.  We look forward to sharing this and will be happy to discuss the plan in detail then.

Thank you for all of your feedback and engagement over the last two years that has contributed to the work to develop a Bike Plan.

The Bike Plan will be the culmination of 2 years of engagement with residents of Edmonton. Through 62 public events including workshops, pop-up events, drop-in sessions, surveys and community conversations, just over 11,500 Edmontonians gave us their feedback about biking in Edmonton. Thank you to everyone who supports safe, convenient cycling in Edmonton.

We heard from so many people: those who are avid cyclists and those who don’t support bike lanes; those who would love to bike more but are nervous; and those who will probably never ride a bike. All of their comments are being considered as we develop the Bike Plan.

Previous Public Engagement

Phase 1: Aspiration and Values (fall/winter 2018)

In 2018, we connected with over 4,000 Edmontonians and created a draft Aspiration and Values statement to guide the creation of the Bike Plan.

Thanks to all of you who contributed your time and energy to that work!

Phase 2: Preferences and Principles (spring/summer 2019)

In Phase 2, which took place in May and June, we collected input to help define the principles that will guide how Edmonton’s bike network will grow. 

We asked questions like:

  • What do you think about the Aspiration and Values statement?
  • What types of bikeways feel most comfortable and safe?
  • How do we make sure biking is well-integrated with other ways we get around? 
  • What supporting programs do we need to focus on - including things like education, wayfinding and bike parking?

Phase 3: Priorities and Tradeoffs (fall 2019)

In Phase 3, which took place in October and November, we shared the draft Bike Network Map for input and talked about what to prioritize as we move forward to implement the Bike Plan.

We asked questions like:

  • Do our draft Bike Network Principles and Map hit the mark? What’s missing?
  • Where should we focus our limited resources to make biking better in Edmonton - in the short and the long term?
  • How do we balance building out the physical bike network with supporting programs like education, wayfinding and bike parking?
