Town of Canmore

Build Bike Friendly

The Town of Canmore has allocated $15,000 for 2018 to support businesses in the Town Centre and Gateway District for the construction of bike infrastructure on private property.  The aim is to support useful and innovative bike-centric installations that will serve business owners, their employees, their patrons and the general public.

Secure bike storage, bike maintenance stands, and wash or repair stations are just some examples of what could be considered for this incentive program!  Innovative new ideas will always be considered!

The purpose of the Bike Canmore Infrastructure Grant is to provide financial assistance towards projects that enhance Canmore’s biking culture.

In the last three years, Bike Canmore has contributed to many creative bike racks and secure bike storage around town. But the possibilities are endless.

We are looking for innovative ideas that benefit the biking community. Secure bike storage, bike maintenance stands, wash or repair stations, bike racks, guest bike locks, and other end-of-trip facilities will be considered.

You must be a 2018 Bike-Friendly Business to apply for this grant.
