Background: The City of Regina has had a multi-use recreational
pathway system in place for many years. On-street bicycle routes are
now being implemented to provide a bikeway system that serves both recreational
and commuter cycling. This system is not mountain bike trails, but is
intended for cyclists, walkers, runners, skateboarders, roller skaters
and skiers. The city has developed a brochure on the pathway system,
which contains an excellent map of the system, that is available by
contacting City Central at 777-7000. The city is also noted for the
Devonian Pathway, which winds its way through picturesque Wascana Park,
and offers an easy day on the bike. The Devonian is asphalt pathway
designed for pedestrians and cyclists only, so you can enjoy your ride
worry-free of vehicles. MAP
