Calgary Mayor’s Expo Lights, Power, Action!

Hundreds of Calgary Board of Education students participated in the Mayor's Environmental Expo June 2-4 and Open Streets was there in a big way, pedal powering four live performers on the Civic Garden stage and providing bicycle and electricity education throughout. The Mini Pennyfarthing Rubber Chicken Bike Skills course was a hit as well as the pedal powered LED vs. Incandescent competition and the DJ sound system pumping out pedal powered beats for each of the three days.
