    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

    Council has unanimously approved fully funding the creation of a high-quality bike route along 102 Avenue from 96 St to 136 St.

    Thank you to everyone who contacted their councillor to support this program.

    Designs for the 102 Avenue route will be completed in mid-2015, when it will go back to the community for feedback and revision. Construction would likely start in 2016.

    You can review and give your feedback on early design options for 102 Ave until December 5 on the project website.

    City Council - 2014-11-24

    Thank you to everyone that wrote to council in support of funding active transportation. Council has just passed a motion to increase funding from $0 to $20 million for the next 4 years.

    Council will debate funding for the 102 Avenue bikeway at 1:30pm. You can listen or watch live online at http://councilontheweb.edmonton.ca/ (Council Chamber).

    The #YEGBike community, in addition to collecting clothing for YESS, is at it again, this time with a simple plan: to drink cofffee together (or your preferred morning beverage).

    Inspired by a group in Portland, this is an Edmonton version of #CoffeeOutside. Once a week, everyone is invited to gather somewhere along the river valley — camp stoves, thermoses, and portable coffeemakers in hand — for a bit of early morning caffeine and fellowship.

    This week the meeting will be at 7:15 am on Friday, November 28 at the wooden platform in Government Hill Park.

    Come on down and bring a mug, some water, and whatever you need to brew a cup the way you like it. It’s guaranteed to be worth the grind.

    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 October 2014, the Edmonton Bike Coalition asked Edmontonians to send pictures of themselves to support bike infrastructure in Edmonton’s central neighbourhoods.

    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.

    In December 2014, City Council votes. (read more…) »
