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

In addition to our extensive network of designated bike routes, you can ride your bike on almost all Vancouver streets.

The Transportation 2040 Plan sets the bar even higher for making bike routes more convenient, comfortable, safer, and fun for people of all ages and abilities.

Plan your route with our cycling map

Our annual cycling map details all bikeways and greenways in the city. It uses different line styles to highlight the most comfortable routes for people of all ages and abilities, and explains bicycle traffic signs used in Vancouver.
