If You Rode Your Bike You'd Be Home By Now

The City of Calgary has closed a major roadway for at least a month for sewer upgrades causing crazy traffic backups heading into the downtown during rush hour.

Want a way around the gong show?  Ride your bike!  More specifically, drive to one of Calgary's Park-n-Bike locations, drop off your car, get on your bike, and pedal past all the traffic on the beautiful river pathways all the way into downtown.   Voila!  No grinding, irritating traffic.  Workout done.  Head cleared and ready for a relaxing evening at home.
