- Saskatoon Cycles would like to thank some new volunteers recruited through our website and events! The more people we have to do little jobs the more successful we will be in accomplishing our advocacy goals within cycling community. If you would like to be involved please contact us through the website and we will be in touch to find a good fit for you! It’s a great way to meet some fun-loving people in your community!
- We are looking for a few creative volunteers to help us refresh the bicycles we use to advertise cycling events in Saskatoon! Let us know if you have some time and ideas!
Local Cycling News
- The Temperance Parklet has been created due to the road closure on 14th Street in front of D’Lish with a bike route through the parklet. A bike lane was painted by an enthusiastic cyclist on the asphalt but was taken out by the City because it “looked too official”. It was suggested a rainbow coloured bike lane would have been acceptable. On March 27th, the pilot project will be reviewed by City Council in order to determine the future of the road closure – you can support the parklet by signing the petition which is located in D’Lish by Tish!
- Ice Cycle was a great success thanks to Felipe Gomez sharing his stories about his winter cycling bike rides to northern Saskatchewan and the Arctic. Thank you Felipe for a great evening and for Ward 6 councillor Cynthia Block and her husband joining the activities! Thanks also to all those who participated, Crystal Parton, Dave Palibroda who helped with the ride, and the many volunteers who helped the evening run smoothly. We wish to give special thanks to EcoFriendly Sask who gave us a grant to support Felipe’s performance!
- Thanks to Ben Ralston for hosting a thoughtful discussion at Amigo’s on February 22nd on the first draft of Cycling Bylaw Reform for the City of Saskatoon. Saskatoon Cycles greatly appreciates the feedback that was provided by the members who reviewed the bylaws that were posted on the Saskatoon Cycles website here.
