Vancouver Bike Lanes Set to Expand
Vancouver is fast becoming one of the best cities in thw world to get around on your bike – and I state this from a completely biased POV since I only just started riding a bike and that is within the confines of the Lower Mainland…. yet, it is very encouraging to read news of further bike lanes to use in the near future!
The city is considering turning parts of Commercial Drive, Point Grey Road and Cornwall Avenue into bikeways as part of the next phase of its quest to reduce bicycle-vehicle conflicts.
Obviously – the idea is meeting mixed reviews ESP with businesses along Commercial Drive who are worried about the potential commercial impacts.
This fall the city also expects to move head with the long-planned Helmcken/Comox bikeway in the West End (my neighbourhood).
I really support additional bike lanes – my friends and I are always selecting these routes to get around as they are way safer, and cycling is becoming more and more popular among Vancouverites.
