    Date: Thursday, January 29th, 7:20 - 9:00 pm

    Join the Edmonton Bicycle Commuters Society (EBC) for a short bike ride from the Shaw Conference Centre to the University of Alberta Observatory. U of A faculty will give a brief astronomy talk in the observatory's indoor education space, and, weather permitting, the observatory domes will be open to view the Moon and the stars through the observatory's telescopes.

    This is both a great way to experience a little bit of winter cycling in an easy, safe and social way (the ride will likely be about 20-30 minutes), and to appreciate the joy of the dark skies provided by Edmonton's early winter evenings.

    A limited number of rental bikes can be provided, free-of-charge, to out-of-town conference delegates. If you would like to participate in this activity and you have your own bike, please contact [email protected].
