I would like to point out that we’ve had several anonymous donors to our campaign, and a number of individuals that have donated in lieu of picking up one of our fabulous perks. Thank you very much.

2016 Calgary Bike Awards

Way back when at the beginning of July, the Calgary bike community celebrated the 2016 Calgary Bike Awards. The event was hosted by Bike Calgary at the downtown Legion. That was the night that we premiered the Bicicles official trailer. I also wrote about some of our “people” that were nominated and that won awards that night. We also did a bit of filming to capture as much of the ceremony as we could. It’s taken us a bit to pull it all together, but here, for your viewing pleasure, are all the highlights of the Awards ceremony.

 

The Bicicles Trailer – A Promise of More Things to Come

Here it is. The official Bicicles movie trailer. It premiered at the annual Calgary Bike Awards ceremony tonight where several of our friends were honoured with nominations. Congratulations to all of the nominees and winners at tonight’s Awards. A special shoutout to Fa-Linn and Mike on being nominated as Bike Commuter of the Year. Also to Kim and Kayley of Commit to Commute, who we interviewed for the movie, for winning as Commuter(s) of the Year, and especially for all the work they do to normalize cycling, especially winter cycling, in Calgary. Winning the Lawrence Hong Bike Advocate of the Year award was Kyle Stewart for his work for YYC Bike to School Day and for getting kids on bikes. Sean Carter of BikeBike fame, another of our excellent interviews, was also nominated for the Bike Advocate of the Year.

Kudos to Kimberley Nelson from Bike Calgary for pulling this all together at the last minute after the unexpected and sudden change of venue and the unexpected loss of some of the volunteer help. In the end, with everyone pitching in, it all came together fabulously. Not to mention the excellent MC work by Mike Morrison of Mike’s BloggityBlog.
