Free historical bike tours of Calgary to launch this weekend

May 11 2018, 5:30 am

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.

Some of Calgary’s own avid cyclists have applauded the initiative, including the author of Calgary By Bike Mike Morrison.

Even Mother Nature seems to be on board with the tours, as Calgary can expect clear, sunny skies and a high of 21°C for Saturday.
