What we do

The Edmonton Bicycle Commuters’ Society (EBC), a non-profit society formed in 1980, is a leader in the Edmonton cycling community. We support people using bicycles as everyday urban travel.

We sell used bikes, accept donated bikes, and run bike repair and riding courses. We also operate a volunteer-run community bike workshop where you can drop in and learn how to fix your bike. For more info, including workshop hours, read our FAQ.

GeoCycling

at 4:56 pm posted by Rob B

This is an article about watching my kids, Rory and Camilla, learn geography as they see the world through the windows or screen of a bicycle trailer. It’s also about re-awakening to the pleasure of experiencing the environment through which I travel. I certainly have rekindled my joy of cycling as I’ve seen the world through my kids’ eyes.
