    Non-EBC event: Strathcona Bike Route Meeting — 4:30 pm, Thursday, November 27, 2014 @ Old Strathcona Performing Arts Centre, 8426 Gateway Boulevard, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

    Now that the location of the Strathcona Bike Route has been finalized, the City invites Edmontonians to participate in a workshop determining the type of bike lane to be installed on the route. Will it be a cycle track? Bike boulevard? Have a say in the design.

    Presentations at 5pm and 7pm.

    City staff will provide an update on the project, present two design options and cover how input from the previous session and our online forum was incorporated in the designs. We would like to hear how you feel about each option and gather any feedback that may further assist the project team to design a bike route that best fits into your area of the route.

    Description: We welcome you to join us for an Earth Day celebration on April 27 from 12-4 pm at Earth's General Store.

    About Earth Day:

    Earth Day started in 1970. It was when the US government was pressured by citizens to create legislation to protect the environment like the clean water and clean air act. The creation of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) also came out of this realization that we needed mechanisms and legislation to protect the environment.

    Earth Day is a day to mark this shift and to keep up the awareness that more needs to be done. The environment needs our help - now and always. We can all do many little things to reduce our ecological footprint and we can do some major things to help move our governments to enact legislation to provide more protection for the environment - voting is a good place, phoning or writing to your elected and not elected 'officials', talking with your co-workers and neighbours, and becoming an activist (a person that acts on their knowledge or beliefs).

    About the Event:

    This is an Edmonton Earth Day event (http://edmontonearthday.ca/ and https://www.facebook.com/edmontonearthday?fref=ts). It is taking place at Earth's General Store as a matter of convenience. Next year it will be a different location.

    Earth Day gives us a day to get together as a concerned community of citizens to share, identify our place in creating a better world, have fun, and to learn more stuff.
    There will be educational booths, workshops, music, food, and friends (new and old ones).
    We look forward to seeing you there.

    Though the 'official' Earth Day is April 22nd it is often celebrated on a weekend around that time. We decided to host this event the weekend following the 22nd so that we are not competing with Easter Celebration and we might have 'nicer' weather. (A week can make a significant difference in temperature - hell 15 minutes in Edmonton could make a significant difference in temperature and weather :).

    Edmonton is blessed to have two Earth Day events being planned for Earth Day week. You can get more information about the other celebration at https://www.facebook.com/events/1424984801082885/?fref=ts

    How you can help:

    Please join us.
    Help share the news, by sharing this event notice and inviting your friends.

    If you wish to be involved in future Earth Day events, please send us an email at [email protected]. We are entirely volunteer driven and will get back to you when we can. Thanks!

    Recent News

    City Council - 2014-11-24

    City Council’s 2015-2018 Capital Budget currently has $0 allocated to active transportation. $0 for downtown bike routes. $0 for the next four years.

    What can you build with that much money?

     

    1. You can build 0 meters of shared-use paths.



    You didn’t need to go anywhere, did you?

    Active Transportation, currently unfunded in the budget, includes building shared-use paths (also known as multi-use trails), installing curb ramps requested by citizens, connecting isolated bus pads to sidewalks, maintenance of river valley stairs, and installing bike racks. (read more…) »

    winter clothing ride

    Many of us ride in the winter and can afford to dress for it. Some in our city aren’t so lucky, including many youth without a home. To help them, the #YEGBike community has launched a charity drive collecting winter clothing for YESS: Youth Empowerment & Support Services (formerly known as the Youth Emergency Shelter Society).

    Donations of jackets, toques, gloves, jeans, socks, and underwear can be dropped off until December 5 at:

    Let’s show Edmonton that cyclists have heart!

    On December 6, a group bike ride will deliver the donations. Please consider giving what you can to help keep marginalized youth warm this winter.

    I Bike YEG

    In less than one month, over 1100 photos were submitted, providing a visible demonstration of the diversity and strength of support for Edmonton’s transformation to a bicycle-friendly city.

    Several motions and inquiries regarding cycling have been brought forth at City Hall in the past several weeks. EBC spoke to the two reports that were presented regarding cycling. You can read the motions and a link to the minutes from those meetings below.

    One of the biggest decisions that Council will make is still to come over the next few weeks, as Council sets priorities and chooses to fund (or not fund) projects in the 4-year Capital Budget 2015-18. (read more…) »
