Kilometres of Cycling-Specific Infrastructure

“Increase the amount of cycling-specific infrastructure by 10%” measures success in improving the ease with which cyclists move around the city.  Cycling-specific infrastructure includes the following:

  • Cycle track:  A raised cycle track that is the same level as the adjacent sidewalk
  • Bike boulevard:  A street that gives priority to cyclists (Example: 23rd Street from Idylwyld Drive to Vancouver Avenue)
  • Paved off-road multi-use trail:  Multi-use pathway (Example: Meewasin Valley Authority Trail or 33rd Street Multi-Use Pathway)
  • Walkway or park path:  Paths in parks
  • Gravel or crushed dust off-road multi-use trail:  (Example: Gravel path connecting Glenwood Avenue to Cardinal Place near Airport Business Area)
  • On-road bike lane:  Painted bike lane 

How are we doing? 

In 2014, cycling infrastructure in Saskatoon was inventoried and classified (see the Cycling Guide). Saskatoon has a total of 1,194 km of cycling facilities of which 80% are suitable for novice cyclists, 12% for intermediate cycling skills, and the remaining 8% are suitable only for expert cyclists (high volume roads). A 10% increase is approximately 1.7 km of additional cycling infrastructure annually using the new 2014 inventory as the baseline.  

Thirteen additional kilometers of cycling infrastructure were added in 2018, surpassing the target of 188 total kilometers by 2023.
