The Banff townsite is just 3.94 sq. kilometres, which means it’s fairly
easy to get around. Locals like to walk and cycle everywhere,
or Roam on Banff’s great public transit system.

It includes several tools securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hang your bike from the arm to freely move pedals and wheels.
