Edmonton’s Ultimate Hardware Store on Jasper Avenue
If you talk with anyone who lived in Edmonton in the 50 years starting in 1930, they’ll attest that W.W. Arcade was the ultimate hardware store. If I really think about it, I can still smell the place and hear the squeak of the floors underfoot and, if you were in the basement, overhead. I can see the shelves piled high with an array of goods and hundreds of other items dangling from the ceilings.

Top rides

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Canadian winters are tough; it’s no wonder why every year ‘sun bird’ cyclists fly south to Arizona to escape the cold.
We might not live in igloos, but the stereotype of the long Canadian winter is pretty accurate for most cyclists north of the 49th parallel. During the winter months in Arizona it’s warm, it’s dry and it has some great road cycling routes. In fact, cycling is one of Arizona’s main draws, so there are many routes throughout the state that are marked specifically for this abundance of road riders.

Spectacular Sikh Temple on Manning Drive
This beautiful Mughal style Sikh temple is located in a relatively isolated corner of North East Edmonton, in an area called Horse Hills. I live in the neighborhood and ride my bike on the roads near the temple. You can also see this beautiful temple from the Manning drive en route to Fort Saskatchewan. It shows the architectural and cultural diversity of Edmonton.
