        Starts: 3:00 pm
        Ends: Saturday, September 20, 2014 - 4:30 pm
        Location: 102 avenue between 108 street to 118 street
        Description: Do you want to be part of a pop-up bike lane rally in the heart of Downtown Edmonton!?

        We’re hosting one on September 20th!

        Event Details:

        Why: Our goal with the pop-up bike lane rally is to show the City of Edmonton that we care about the 102 ave bike lane and would like to see it implemented.

        Where: The lane will span from 108 street & 102 ave to 118 street & 102 ave.

        When: 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm on Saturday, September 20th

        We will meet at 108 street and 102 ave at 3:00 pm on September 20th and bike together west to the Oliver Community Hall on 118 street. The lane will be dismantled at 4:30 pm

        The pop-up bike lane will lead you to some great festivities being put on by the Oliver Community League for Community League day. (OCL has graciously offered to cover the costs of our event. Let’s show them some love!

        So what do we need from you?

        1. Tell all your friends. We want a large presence of cyclists out to demonstrate we are serious about this bike lane!

        2. Write your city councilor and tell them bike lanes are important to you. Our goal is to get the City of Edmonton to establish the route in the 2015 budget and to have the route implemented in 2015. You can find your councilor’s contact information here: http://www.edmonton.ca/city_government/city_organization/city-councillors.aspx

        3. Volunteer support. This project will need people to help with the set-up of the bike lanes, and we’d appreciate any help we can get. Please send us an email if this interests you.

        We’re excited about Edmonton’s future as a bikeable city. Together, we can Make Edmonton the safe, beautiful and vibrant city we want to live in.

        If you want to learn more about why we are hosting the pop up bike lane rally, read on below:

        Edmonton is moving towards being a bike-friendly city. Their position on being a bikeable city can be found here: http://www.edmonton.ca/transportation/cycling_walking/cycling.aspx

        In Spring 2014, through a process of public consultation, the city sought feedback on the proposed 102 ave bike lane. As things progressed, it appeared that there was a road bump in the process and it was revealed in this Metro article (http://metronews.ca/news/edmonton/1113580/proposed-102-avenue-bike-lanes-up-in-the-air-despite-city-of-edmonton-consultations/) that there is a possibility that the 102 ave bike lanes may not be viable due to constraints on road space.
        Most recently, City Councillor Scott McKeen posted on his blog (http://www.scottmckeen.ca/downtown_bike_lanes) that he was committed to seeing the bike route project move forward.

        Earlier this year the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition trialled a pop-up bike lane. For as little as $600, they were able to create a temporary bike lane. You can read more about their project here: http://streetsblog.net/2014/02/03/the-600-protected-bike-lane/

        This project served as inspiration for our pop up bike lane. We felt it would be a good way to show the city how we feel about the 102 ave bike lane. We believe the bike lane is essential to a safe and vibrant downtown core.

        We’re pleased to partner with the Oliver Community League and Downtown Community League to bring this idea to fruition. The Oliver Community League has graciously offered to cover the costs for the event.
