We were limited in how far we could go without bikes, but we manage to click off 10 miles a day in the three days we spent in this, my favorite Canadian city. Everyone can participate in this well-planned path system, which is also safely broken into lanes for bikes and pedestrians. Makes you almost want to move here -... More

Once on the pathway, you can bike or walk for miles and miles without ever encountering traffic. We rode about eight miles to the west from downtown, and then came back on the other side of the river and rode about four more miles to the east. We did not come close to covering the whole pathway.

The Calgary pathway system is excellent up and down the river. We still have some places that are being cleaned up from the flood two years ago so give us a little break if you have to make a detour. However take a walk, go for a bike ride or dust off your roller blades ... just get out and... More

What a thrill is was to ride from one end of the City of Calgary to the other without having to contend with car traffic!! Calgary is a relatively flat city so we easily rode for four hours (okay, we did stop for coffee) without being exhausted. I live on Vancouver Island so I really enjoyed a ride without massive...

The pathway System is Calgary promotes pedestrian and bicycle traffic almost everywhere you go. The pathways are well-designed, and the scenery is fantastic. What a great way to see the city while enjoying the great outdoors. Way to go Calgary!!

Wonderful network of trails. Although I walked only a small portion of the path system, I fell in love. Would be great to be able to run it every day. Would absolutely love to have something this good in my own city.

What to say... clean and well planned! The city seems to pride itself and allowing Calgarians to get around however they choose - and the path network shows! I am looking forward to the bike lanes in the city centre this year!

there are very few areas that you do not have trails or designated bike areas in Calgary...and buses, also have bike carriers to aid in this type of commute. very impressive Calgary !!!, and I love your online maps.

I moved away from Calgary for a 1.5 years and I missed the pathways system everyday. Our pathway is one of the best you can ride your bike all over the city without being on the roads. It is very scenic and in the higher traffic areas has seperate running and biking paths. This pathway system gives you the ability... More
