There is a need to update the new downtown Cycle Tracks. I am also having trouble removing the "calgary bike way" designations on streets where these designations have been removed.


Cycling Legal on Nose Hill

Re: the comments about Nose Hill and cycling being illegal on unpaved trails. I believe this is innaccurate. There is a "multi-use zone" on the "top" of Nose Hill that allows off-trail riding, and I also believe ANY "designated trail" (paved or not) allows cycling. The only source I can find is a map on calgary.ca and it's not explicit about this latter.

You are correct. All pathways are multi-use, and cyclists have a right to all roadways except Deerfoot Trail, where it is explicitly prohibited and signed.
