Town of Canmore

Build Bike Friendly

The Town has allocated up to $25,000 in 2021 to support businesses and property managers with the construction of bike infrastructure on private property. The aim is to support installations that will serve business owners and their employees, patrons and the general public. Secure bike storage, bike maintenance stands, and wash or repair stations are 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 contribute to increasing accessibility of cycling for the travelling public.

In the last six years, this program has contributed to dozens of creative bike racks and secure bike storage around town. We're open to discussing any ideas. Secure bike storage, bike maintenance stands, wash or repair stations, bike racks, guest bike locks, and other end-of-trip facilities will be considered.
