Bicycle Wayfinding in Calgary

In 2017, I delivered a presentation to the Transportation folks at The City of Calgary on bicycle wayfinding.

The presentation offered background on Calgary's existing cycle track network, and using lessons learned from cities around the world, suggested wayfinding solutions to enhance the cycle track's growth.  

The presentation was extensive; here are a few slides:
