Although Calgary still has a long way to go before it could be considered to have a world class bike infrastructure, the Peace Bridge is getting noticed. It's on the cover of Velo City: Architecture for Bikes, featured here: http://www.theguardian.com/cities/ga...es-in-pictures

Sadly several of the upper glass panels have been cracked. I'm assuming vandalism, since it all happened one night. I wonder how long it will take to repair, and how much each glass panel costs...

I love the whimsical feel of this bridge, even though its done for practicality.

That is a very cool bridge. Something similar could work very well over 16th Avenue in Bowness near Edworthy park rather than the current pedestrian lights as people come speeding around the bend.


I'm not sure we'll be needing/seeing many new river crossings for some time now.

When I visited Calgary last summer, this bridge was a favourite of mine. I'll be there again this weekend and I'm excited for winter photography
