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.
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. This is a complete guide, plus lots of photos and two videos!
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.
New Westminster Cycling: There is plenty of cycling in New Westminster, BC. This post provides an overview of New Westminster cycling, and then focuses in on the most family-friendly, easy cycling available in New Westminster: the newly redeveloped New Westminster quay, and the new Quayside Park.
This is a guide plus video of the entire Central Valley Greenway (CVG). It runs all the way from Science World in Vancouver to the New Westminster Quay. It’s a challenging but very interesting bike ride. Parts are magical, other parts still need work to make them pleasant. It is NOT a AAA route (all ages and abilities), even though it aspires to be. Still, it is quite an awesome route, covering 24 km (15 miles) from Vancouver, through Burnaby, and into New Westminster. It is remarkably flat most of the time, but there are a few uphills.
