    Calgary | TELUS Sky | 222.19m | 60s | Westbank | Bjarke Ingels Group

    Calgary Restaurant Thread

    I've been to Cassis. The food is very good, and probably as authentic French as you'll find in Calgary. It's pricey (as is always the case with French) but you won't be disappointed with the food.

    Calgary & Alberta Economy

    Calgary to Canmore Trail

    It could be a while before it makes it out to Canmore, but yeah, I could see it being a tourist draw, especially for cyclists.

    Calgary to Canmore Trail

    I can't wait until the trail is done, it'll be a great day bike trip. Much nicer than taking the bike along the 1A. The 1A is flat and has some nice vistas, but it's not nice having cars whizzing by at 100 klicks.

    They mention that much of the pathway exists already. I didn't even know these pathway sections existed, and they look nice, here are a few links to some google views of the pathway sections. Section, and other section here, another section closer to Cochrane
