Itinerary:
Let's meet at Edworthy Park, near the tracks on the south side of the river, at 10:45 am for an 11:00 am take-off. We'll ride along the Bow River pathway, through Eau Claire, and to the beautiful historic concert venue at the Cathedral Church, across from the northwest corner of Olympic Plaza, at 7th Ave and 1st St SE, arriving early enough to lock up our bikes, grab a complimentary coffee, and get seats together.

This concert features blues singer and songwriter 'Sugar Brown', and is a co-presentation with the Calgary International Bluesfest. As are all Pro Arts noon hour performances, this concert is free; however, please consider making a donation, especially if you store your bike inside. BTW, you are welcome to eat your bag lunch during the performance.

After the concert, we'll continue our pathway ride through East Village, around the revamped St. Patrick's Island, and then return to Edworthy Park, with an optional add-on of Bowness Park pathways.

Required Items to Bring:
- helmet, water, bike lock, bag lunch, cash for optional donation
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:Edworthy Park can be reached from the south side via Bow Trail, 45th St SW and Spruce Drive - or - from the north side via Bowness Rd or Shaganappi Trail NW in Montgomery, and then biking over the foot bridge to the south side. The parking lot on the north side of Edworthy Park may be full with commuters, so plan extra time to park elsewhere (like Shouldice Park, or along 13th Ave NW, accessed from Home Road, south of 16th Ave NW), and ride to the meeting point.
