Bike Lanes

The Town of Cochrane is committed to making cycling a safe and attractive transportation choice for people of all ages and abilities, for both commuting and recreational purposes. Multi-modal options can promote healthy transportation options and can also take vehicles off the road and reduce traffic volumes.

That’s why we installed bike lanes:

Bike Lane

Designated bike lane

Diamond symbol indicates designated bike lane.

Bike lane rules:

  •  Drivers may NOT drive, stop or park in bike lanes.
  •  Drivers may cross a bike lane to turn or park, after they have checked for cyclists.
Shared Bike Lane

Shared bike lane

Chevron or “sharrow” indicates a shared bike lane.

Shared bike lane rules:

  • Drivers and cyclists both use the same travel lane


Glenbow Drive

Glenbow Dr

  • Merges into a shared lane closer to Fifth Avenue

 What the dashed line means:

  • usually near intersections
  • drivers who want to turn right should shoulder-check for cyclists, yield when cyclists are using the bike lane, then move into the right lane to turn when the way is clear.
Railway Street

Railway St

  • Vehicles and bikes share the road 
  •  Allows room for on-street parking 

 Note: cyclists should stay to the right when there’s room
