Crescent Heights High School
We are thrilled to have Crescent Heights as a project school!
Youth en Route has supported Crescent Wrench Bike Shop and Outdoor Education experiences. The school has a fleet of bikes they ride in class and maintain at the school. We’re excited to see what happens this year.
For information, please see Mr. Barrett!

Did you know that an average cyclist goes 20 km per hour? That means a 5 km ride, can take about 15 minutes – depending on route, terrain, and waiting for lights at intersections. It’s often shorter than the bus!
Do you fit in this distance range? Check out this school’s 4 km radius on the map to the left to find out!
We’ve provided some examples of routes from neighborhoods around your area. Please remember that safety is YOUR responsibility. Know your route, and only ride when you feel confident.
We’ve done a few maps to help you get on your way:
Brand new infrastructure report for Crescent Heights High School!
Youth En Route worked very hard in collaboration with two graduate Urban Planning students, Nada Affan, and Adam Schwartz to create this report. It offers research findings and actionable recommendations for safer biking infrastructure throughout Calgary. Establishing the right infrastructure is key to creating safe and healthy environments for pedestrians and cyclists. We hope this report will put forward safe biking infrastructure ideas to get to school and spark conversations within communities to make such changes. To know more, read this post!
Theft video into a statement
Youth en Route knows that the risk of bike theft is a significant barrier to students choosing active travel. The risk of theft is the No. 3 reason for not riding to school, having an average of 60% of students telling us they are afraid of losing their bikes per school. We hope that this video will enlighten all Calgarians on the right ways of securing their bicycles.
Always Put Safety First:
Safety is your responsibility. Please ride where you are comfortable, know your route and always wear a helmet!
