The City of Airdrie offers approximately 140 kilometres of asphalt pathway and 37 kilometres of concrete sidewalks for beautiful bike rides or walks around the city.
There are some stretches of pathways that you can find historical markers with information on Airdrie's past.
Airdrie is now part of “The Great Trail” (Trans Canada Trail), created by Trans Canada Trail and partners in 1992. The trail is now 24,000 kilometres of multi-use recreational trail and is the world’s longest recreational trail. When completed, the trail will stretch from the Atlantic to the Pacific and to the Arctic Oceans, linking over 1,000 communities and 34 million Canadians. Millions of Canadians and international visitors are now using the Trail. Airdrie's portion of the trail connects to Irricana’s road network and Rocky View County’s proposed route.
