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.
With the tourist season coming, I decided to make some of my most popular posts about great bike routes in and around Vancouver easier to find. So I have created a page devoted to Vancouver cycling.

The Vancouver Park Board has unanimously approved a plan to widen the sidewalks along both sides of the Stanley Park Causeway to improve safety for cyclists and pedestrians. This ambitious plan was partly in response to the death of a 61-year-old woman cyclist in 2013. It was also in response to all of the activism that followed. It is a long overdue move – but on the plus side, it is a giant step forward in providing safe cycling infrastructure to Vancouver residents.
