Valentine's Day is right around the corner, and instead of sticking to the usual routine of chocolates and flowers, why not enliven the experience with a biking adventure? Whether you're celebrating on the day itself or opting for a weekend getaway when time allows, a cycling outing promises to be a fun and memorable experience. At Bike to Work Day, we're all about promoting active lifestyles and unique ways to celebrate special occasions, and cycling with your significant other fits the bill perfectly.
One fun option is to pedal to your favorite local café and enjoy in a signature hot chocolate together. With YYC Hot Chocolate Fest running until February 29, there's no shortage of cozy spots offering warm, rich delights that are sure to make your Valentine's Day outing extra special.
If you prefer an outdoor date, why not chase the sunset together? Pack a charcuterie-style snack, and some warm drinks and find a spot with a stunning view of the prairie sky as it paints itself in beautiful colours during dusk. The sun will set at 5:50 PM on February 14. For an extra touch of romance, consider heading to a city park where you can use a firepit to create a fire-roasted dinner or some sweet treats. Evening booking slots for firepit use in our city parks are available from 7 PM – 9 PM.
No matter what you decide, we're sending love your way and hoping you'll seize the opportunity to enjoy some happy cycling moments together. Whether it's a leisurely ride to a café or a romantic sunset adventure, Valentine's Day on two wheels is bound to be a memory you'll cherish.
