Lots of bike/walking trails to get you pretty much anywhere

The city's pathway system is extensive, well maintained, and (for the most part) safe. The only time you may need to be aware of is during the morning "commuter olympics" where some bikers still think they need to go as fast as they can on these paths.Other than that, you can see some of the best parts of Calgary on...

With over 400 km of trails you can easily travel the "burbs", parks and get to downtown from pretty well anywhere in the city. There are extensive trails through the many parkland areas Calgary has to offer. So if you're a biker, blader or walker take advantage of the great pathway system.

Excellent way to tour Calgary. We made the mistake of walking around, I suggest it's better to hire bikes and explore these pathways.

We hired bikes on the last day of our holiday and decided to go through the Calgary Parks system. We cycled for 2 hours on a very scenic and flat path which took us up one side of the river and down the other. We could have gone further but we actually cycled 18 kilometres without really realising it. Excellent... More

People should just get on a bike and adventure all around Calgary. You see things that you would never see on a drive by and the paths are incredible, going everywhere. I think about 1000 kms of them virtually all around the City.

Borrowed a bike to explore the path system along the river coming from the park hill area towards the downtown area. There is a detour around the stampede grounds during stampede...I didn't find the posted map very helpful so turned around and travelled in the opposite direction towards Stanley park and Rideau park...lovely areas!

My family of 8 (adults / teens) visited Calgary and rented bikes on our second day in the city (from Sports rent). We kept the bikes for 24hrs and biked EVERYWHERE along the river, thru the city, and back to the bike shop. Just as an FYI, our group consisted of one woman who was 6mo pregnant, and two who...

I love our pathways. Once you hit the river pathway system you can ride for miles without having to be in traffic. It is so much more relaxing.
