Man's Greatest Invention

When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle. - Elizabeth West

Purpose and Mission

To share our experience and to encourage and inspire others to use a bicycle as a form of year round recreation and transportation. To be an example of living car-free and to help others to make the transition to having a car-light or car-free life style.

Our bodies is the engine that moves us.

Six more weeks of winter, oh joy!

According to the most sophisticated weather forecasting technology known to man, groundhogs, we are looking at another 6 weeks of winter.  Don't let the weather keep you off your bike.  There are some very good recreational riding opportunities available in Calgary in the winter.  One of my favourites is Edworthy Park.  Wherever there are hikers, there are trails to ride.

This was Edworthy Park on Christmas day.

Riding a trail 18" wide just adds to the fun.

Stopping for a rest by the Bow River back in November.
