Dr. E. P Scarlett High School


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!

We’ve provided some examples of routes from neighborhoods around Scarlett. Please remember that safety is YOUR responsibility. Know your route, and only ride when you feel confident. Learn more, or click the maps below for sample routes.

Infrastructure Report

Brand new infrastructure report for Dr. E.P. Scarlett 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!

Thief 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!
