Big RED Ride

Enjoy a ride outside without the strain of too much pedaling. This four-person bike provides opportunities for greater levels of fitness, social connectivity, and it's a lot of fun.

The exercise intensity will be moderate since the bike has a battery-assist boost to help with hills, headwinds or heavier loads. The bike is fully adaptable for people with mobility issues or balance challenges. Participants can pedal as much (or as little) as they like, with a common goal to exercise and increase the range of motion in their legs. Helmets will be provided.


Rides are free, but registration is required. Call 403.762.1251 or email to register. No medical referral needed.


This bike is for adults and specifically for Banff residents. The purpose of the program is to provide at risk and vulnerable populations in Banff with opportunities for greater fitness and social connectivity to improve both their physical and mental health.
