Planning your next cycling trip? The Central Valley Greenway (CVG) provides a 24-kilometre of mostly flat route through a hilly region with safe corridors for commuters and entries to some local parks. It runs from Falser Creek in Vancouver through Burnaby and along a shallow valley south to the Fraser River in New Westminster.
A multi-purpose route, you can explore CVG through cycling, jogging, walking, travelling on a wheelchair, skateboarding and blading. The route closely follows the Millennium Line and links to both Millennium and Expo SkyTrain stations, which means you can hop on the SkyTrain with your bike if you need a break.
If you would like to explore the cycling routes along the Expo SkyTrain Line alone, check out our adventure guide along the BC Parkway
What do you need to know about the route
CVG varies greatly throughout the length of its route. In some sections it is fully constructed as a separated urban greenway or a rural recreational trail. In other sections the route runs parallel to a railway corridor or the edge of an industrial roadway. Most sections of the trail are suitable for all kind of walking and wheeling. The exception is in Burnaby where there are some compacted gravel paths less suitable for in-line skating. Some sections of the Greenway are composed of interim routes that will be upgraded in the future.
