Mining in the Beverly Area
In the early twentieth century Alberta was one of Canada’s main producers of coal. Several coal deposits run through the Edmonton area. The largest is the Clover Bar seam in northeast Edmonton, which is located underneath the Beverly area. This seam produced 95% of the coal produced in the Edmonton area.

How To Use Bike Gears Properly
Bikes have anywhere from one front chainring to three chainrings these days, accompanied by seven to eleven gears in the back. The different combinations of these gears will determine how easy or difficult it is to pedal and will dictate your speed. If you are looking to make small adjustments in the speed/difficulty then you will want to change your back gears (also known as cogs).

Coming up for Living on the Edge
Horse Hills is the land north of the Anthony Henday, west of Manning Drive and east of the North Saskatchewan River. This is the area where I ride my bicycle because I live close by at the North end of the city and there is no big volume of traffic.
