We need safe bike routes in every city, so that many more seniors can cycle in safety. All the money spent on cycling infrastructure would be more than made up by the money saved in the healthcare system if more seniors could safely exercise every day.
This is a complete guide plus narrated video about the flat, family-friendly Stanley Park Seawall Bike Trail – one of the most beautiful bike trails in the world. Vancouver’s Stanley Park was recently named the top urban park in the world by Trip Advisor. It’s the third-biggest park in North America, comprising 400 hectares of rain forest, right in the heart of Vancouver. Flanked by English Bay and Burrard Inlet, the entire park offers magical water views, and shade from towering, ancient trees.
The Seaside Bike Route is a multi-use recreational route in Vancouver that offers awesome views and endless activities along the Vancouver Seawall. The Seaside Bike Route goes from the Convention Center at Coal Harbour on Burrard Inlet, all the way to Jericho Beach.
After years of activism by cycling advocates, Minister Todd Stone announced that work to widen the sidewalks along both sides of the Stanley Park Causeway to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians will start this week. By the end of this year, cyclists and pedestrians will be able to cross the Lions Gate Bridge safely!
We cycled the Poco Trail yesterday – one of the best trails in the Greater Vancouver area. We were sad to find that the trail is littered with fallen trees, after that terrific wind storm on 29 August.
