Nothing pairs better with some fresh air than a side helping of historical knowledge, and that’s just what participants will be served at a history bike tour of Calgary this weekend.
History Cycle YYC — for now just a Twitter account, but soon to be an informative resource with some cardio mixed in— has big plans for this Saturday, as it has organized the city’s only free historical bike tour.
Participants are encouraged to meet up outside the Simmons Building at 11 am on Saturday, May 12 for an hour and a half bike tour that will feature information on Calgary’s history, as well as “practically no hills,” and will aim to avoid traffic as much as possible.
Riders of all skill levels and ages are encouraged to attend, along with Calgarians and visitors of the city alike.
Practically no hills & we’ll avoid traffic as much as possible. Locals & visitors check it out!
PS – logo coming soon!

Some of Calgary’s own avid cyclists have applauded the initiative, including the author of Calgary By Bike Mike Morrison.
Historical bike tours are coming to Calgary. I’ve been saying forever that Calgary businesses don’t take advantage of bike tourism enough. Glad to see when someone does. https://t.co/GAIB2oufdI
