Critical Mass – Take Back the Bridge!

Friday, July 29, 5:30 pm

City Hall

The first Critical Mass in Edmonton occured in 1994, rallying to make the High Level Bridge safer for cyclists. In 1995, the sidewalks were widened and riding over the bridge became a less terrifying affair. Twenty years later, with record numbers of people choosing to cycle, badly executed suicide barriers have made crossing the busiest bike corridor in the city dangerous for people walking and biking, and have undone the hard won progress of the last 20 years. We can take back the High Level Bridge.  Join us for a casual ride to the south side, and a glimpse of how riding down main street should feel.

Tragically Hip Fan Fundraiser

Saturday, July 30, 3 pm – 6 pm

The Needle Vinyl Tavern

A pre-party fundraiser is a group of fans gathering before a Tragically Hip concert to meet up and make new friends, inspired by the Wishlist Foundation, a Pearl Jam fan-run organization. Add in a charitable cause, mix in a raffle and some merchandise available for a small donation and you’’ll be in good company with fellow fans doing a great thing!
