BTWD brings together like-minded Calgarians to promote cycling as a viable means of transportation, reduce inner-city traffic congestion, and reduce pollution in the air.

BTWD promotes a sense of community; we welcome families to get out on their bikes and join us! With the effects of climate change weighing on our shoulders, biking to work or anywhere is a simple way to reduce carbon emissions and our environmental impact. Our event features Energy Pit Stops throughout downtown supported by Calgary’s bicycle retailers with swag and free bicycle tune-ups, a free pancake breakfast, prizes, and numerous vendors down at the hub of BTWD at Delta Gardens. Our hope is that by having our event early in the season that participants will enjoy the experience and it will inspire them to continue to ride their bicycles all year long. In order to inspire more participants, Lonny Balbi pledges to donate $1 for every participant to charity.
Location:Our main event area is located at Delta Gardens at the South end of the Peace Bridge. Check out our website for our Energy Pit Stop Locations!

The National Music Centre proudly hosts Violins of Hope at Studio Bell from May 3 to June 16, 2024.

The instruments were donated or purchased from survivors and descendants or recovered from remnants of ghettos and concentration camps. Each instrument stands as a monument to survivors and victims and serves as a reminder of the hope that music can bring even in the darkest moments.
