Here is a list of where to report all kinds of cycling dangers and safety hazards on bike routes in British Columbia.
Despite really nasty weather, the current Hub Bike to Work week in Metro Vancouver is smashing all previous fall bike to work week records. The Bike to Work weeks support cyclist commuters and encourages new cyclist commuters. This week 4,155 cyclists have signed up, of whom 719 are brand new! That’s a really impressive number! […]
If there’s something unsafe in your neighborhood – Who you gonna call? In the City of Vancouver, call 311 for help with bike safety or road maintenance issues.
Vancouver’s Seaside Bike Route runs along Vancouver’s Seawall. It is a multi-use recreational route, located in the downtown core of Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Vancouver has been accused of having a dull, grey cycling monoculture. Nothing could be further from the truth! In Vancouver the cyclists are as diverse as the population. Vancouver cycling culture is vibrant and colorful.
The Central Valley Greenway runs from the New Westminster Quay, via Burnaby, to Science World in Vancouver – a total distance of 24 km. It is marvelously ambitious; hinting at a wonderful future when commuting by bike could be easy and safe for a wide range of cyclists – from kids to seniors, and everyone in between.

So of the two, it’s the motorist who’s getting an absolutely free ride, and the cyclist who is paying for the road!
