Yellowknife Visitor Centre lets tourists borrow bikes for free to explore city

  • Print

YELLOWKNIFE - Visitors to Yellowknife can now borrow bikes for free at the downtown Visitor Centre and explore the city.

The new service — sponsored by Outcrop, a local communications firm — is scheduled to run at least until Labour Day.

The city is a bike-friendly place, said Ryan Silke, a tourism counsellor at the centre.

"The Visitor Centre is right on the shore of Frame Lake and there are a number of different trail networks in the area, so visitors can come and pick up a bike and off they go."

He also recommended Old Town as a cycling destination.

"There are some nice one-way streets. It's pretty chillax there with not too much traffic, so that's a good place to go."

Helmets and locks are also provided.
