Alberta Cycling Coalition

The Alberta Cycling Coalition (ACC) is a like-minded organizations and individuals seeking to make Alberta roads safer for cyclists.

The ACC aims to do this by:
  • proposing changes to the Traffic Safety Act
  • building our network of support and stakeholders
  • advocating for amendments to current legislation ACC members have drawn from our combined experience
They've identified 3 key recommendations to modify the Alberta Traffic Safety Act:
  1. Require safe passing distance of one metre, and 1.5m at speeds greater than 60km/h
  2. Allow two abreast riding, when not impeding reasonable flow of traffic
  3. Cyclists to ride as far to the right as is safe, versus as is practicable
