The COVID-19 situation is unprecedented and the City has reallocated resources to respond. Presentation of the Bike Plan to Urban Planning Committee is currently postponed.
The Bike Plan was 2 years in the making and built with the feedback of over 11,000 Edmontonians.
The Bike Plan is a plan for all Edmontonians. Edmonton can become a place where biking is practical and inviting for people of all ages and abilities and where people can choose to bike for any reason and in any season.
The Bike Plan lays the foundation for a network that is accessible and predictable for experienced and inexperienced riders alike. It supports active transportation and safe and direct routes for people commuting to work, running errands, accessing the river valley for recreational trips and improved neighbourhood networks to connect people to local destinations.
The Bike Plan is an update to the 2009 Bicycle Transportation Plan and provides strategic direction for how the City plans, designs, implements, operates and maintains bike infrastructure and programs.
The Bike Plan is based on knowledge gained over the past 10 years, including recent changes to Edmonton’s bike network and the rapid evolution of bike planning best practices. The plan was informed by extensive engagement with Edmontonians, who shared their rich experiences, their ideas and their vision for the future.
