Cycling education programs

Knowing the laws and best practices for sharing Calgary's roadways and pathways is vital for the safety and enjoyment of all road and pathway users. We also recommend taking a cycling education course to build your knowledge, skills and confidence to fully enjoy the freedom cycling can provide.
