Are you looking to get into cycling in Metro Vancouver? Are you unsure of where the best, safest and longest stretches of cycling paths and lanes? Or maybe you want to learn more about the region’s cycling community in general.
TransLink.ca is a great place to start your cycling journey!
FYI, you’re going to want to bookmark it because it’s a great repository for all things cycling!
Our latest addition to the page is a link to BikeMaps.org a crowdsource tool for the global mapping of cycling safety.
The focus on the map is, “… to identify areas with cycling safety issues. These results can be used by municipalities to prioritize infrastructure investments, resulting in safer streets for cycling.”
It’s pretty cool as you zoom into your area!
The map shows you detailed locations of bike thefts, accidents, rough or unfavourable cycling conditions and traffic jam hot spots.
