And, how do bike lanes fit into being the 'Best in the Core' example of active transportation? What they do for the core, and how they could be better? Join us with former Edmonton Oilers captain Andrew Ference and Anna Ho, a change maker in Edmonton.
Andrew Ference, former Edmonton Oilers captain, who puts community and fitness first, has now biked up a storm since officially announcing his retirement from the NHL. With staying active in the city, Ference has given back by launching the November Project in 2013 as well as being advocate for an active lifestyle here in Edmonton.
It's safety first for Anna Ho. The busy mother of three and part-time engineer is becoming known for her work in helping to make Edmonton's streets safer for active transportation. She's the current chair of Paths for People, a local transportation advocacy group.
