Winter 2017.

* Well as we enter the last official month of winter we are starting to get pumped about another successful spring of getting people moving on your old bikes. As such we are looking for volunteers to assist with community clean up events, bike events, and helping prep bikes for shipment to Africa. If any of these things interests you please drop us a note,

  1. *We are VERY happy to have been chosen as the charity for this years Bike to Work Day on May 5th. This is a free event promoting the benefits of commuting to work (and other destinations) in Calgary. Furthermore, Lonny Balbi will donate $1 for every person that participates in the event. Please consider support this event, thereby helping us, but most importantly, you will benefit. Lets get on our bikes and ride!

* Can’t make this ride well join us at the Calgary Tweed Ride. This has become one of Calgary’s premier inner-city bike rides. Now in its 6th year it takes place on Victoria Day (May 22, 2017). The ride starts with a pre-ride teatime then travels through the downtown with cyclists dress in tweed (the original activeware) before ending to enjoy a pint and prizes.
