      Bikes vs Cars depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: climate, earth's resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.

      The screening of this documentary is coinciding with the Winter Bike to Work Day in Edmonton (Friday, February 12th, 2016)

      This event is happening on a Saturday evening. The on street parking around the store downtown is free on Saturday evenigns after 6pm. There are several surface lots, underground, and tower parking spaces in the area but they cost money

      The LRT station (Bay/Enterprise Square Station) has an exit on the North East corner of Jasper and 104th Street. Very convenient which is 1/2 a block south of the store. There are lots of buses that travel along Jasper and #8 stops on 102nd Avenue half a block north of the store.

      Want to help out at BikeWorks? Attend this orientation and learn how you can lend a hand.

      http://edmontonbikes.ca/event-registration/

      It takes a small army of volunteers to keep BikeWorks running every day and we welcome anybody who would like to join our community. Learn how you can lend a hand by attending a Volunteer Orientation! You'll find out how you can help keep the shop running smoothly, learn a little bit of the history and philosophy of EBC, and get connected with other volunteers.

      BikeWorks volunteers receive benefits including after-hours access, volunteer pricing, free private courses, social events, and of course the opportunity to learn mechanic skills while helping people to fix their bikes.

      Existing mechanical experience is always welcome, but not necessary. There are opportunities for non-mechanical volunteers, as well as opportunities to develop new skills.

    The City of Edmonton has developed traffic safety strategies for the intersection of Scona Road, 99 Street and Saskatchewan Drive. The purpose of these strategies is to upgrade the intersection to ensure safety and meet the needs of current and future users, with particular attention to pedestrians and bicyclists.

    Some of the safety improvements include digital speed display signs, new traffic and pedestrian lights and several other modifications. The traffic safety studies, and accompanying documents are available on the City’s website.
