Do you enjoy commuting around the city on your bike? Well, you’re in luck, because it is international bike month in the City of Edmonton. Biking around the city is not only a great form of exercise; it’s also fuel efficient—the only fuel you’re using is pedal power!
With the great month that is bike month. There are tons of events held by Bikeology: Edmonton’s Hub For Cycling Culture, like Bikey Breakfast, Foodie Fridays, and the Commuter Challenge Race. You can find more information on these events and dates on the Bikeology website. An event that is happening soon is the World Naked Bike Ride on June 13. The tagline for this event is “Stop indecent exposure to vehicle emissions!” You’re intrigued, I know. Aren’t we all?
One thing the city is lacking, though, are bike lanes that go around the entire city. Some of them kind of lead to nowhere at times. Nevertheless, if the city sees that Edmontonians tend to bike around the city more frequently as opposed to driving, they will be more inclined to paint the holy lines that are bike lanes.
Have a great summer, biking around!
