Cycling in Metro Vancouver
by Louise

Bicycling is an excellent way to get exercise, enjoy the nice weather and sightsee in your community. The world looks very different from the seat of a bicycle than from the inside of a car. On a bike you have time to admire your neighbours’ gardens, smell the flowers and listen to the birds singing.

This is a great time of year to go biking because the weather is good and the cities of Metro Vancouver are working to provide convenient, efficient bikeways and facilities for cyclists.

Here are some resources on the Internet to inspire you to jump on your bicycle and go for a ride:


         The Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition is an excellent website to find out about bicycling in Metro Vancouver. The site has information on safety, choosing a bike, cycling with children, cycling in the rain, places to ride, group rides, education and much more.

         Did you know you can take your bike on the bus and on Skytrain? Visit the Translink website for more information. 

         Do you want to find the shortest bicycle route from your home to Moody Park? Visit the UBC/Google Cycling Planner. You can search for a route with the shortest distance, least traffic pollution or fewest hills.
