Cycling routes, maps, and trip planner

Bike Vancouver map cover

One of the most convenient and affordable ways to get around town, and to experience our unforgettable scenery, is by bike.

You can ride your bike on almost all Vancouver streets, and the City has an extensive network of designated bike routes to help you get around.

The City's updated Transportation Plan will set the bar even higher for making bike routes even more comfortable and convenient for people of all ages and abilities.

Map your bike travel

All bike routes in the City are detailed on our cycling map, updated annually to include all the new City bikeways and greenways.

The map uses different line styles to point out the separated bike lanes from other types. Bicycle traffic signs used in the City are explained as well.
