ABOUT SHIFT!

Yellowknife is a small city where most journeys are less than 15 minutes by bike.  However, a car dependent culture, and lack of cycling infrastructure means most people travel predominantly by car.  A mountain of research shows that car dependency is highly problematic, but it can be a hard habit to break. To encourage a shift in mindset, we are launching a FREE two-week trial program to help residents choose to bike their daily commutes. Borrow one of our bikes (or use your own) and see what happens when you make it your primary mode of transport.  After two weeks, we believe that you’ll have formed a habit that you don’t want to change. You will feel better, be healthier, save money, and have helped make your community safer and more connected. Participants will be asked to map their routes, noting high quality as well as problematic areas. We’ll use this data to advocate for more complete streets in Yellowknife. Sign-up to make the SHIFT and start looking forward to your commute!

BEHIND SHIFT

After living in Denmark, Becca and Adam Denley recently returned to Yellowknife, inspired by the transformative impact of multimodal infrastructure. In Denmark, they enjoyed biking to work and seeing their children safely navigate to activities on protected lanes and paths. Witnessing all ages benefit from an active lifestyle. Upon their return, they were inspired to advocate for similar changes in Yellowknife, hoping to bring the same sense of freedom and community to Yellowknife!
