Vancouver Creates Continuous Network of Protected Bike Lanes

October 15, 2010

How do we make our car-oriented cities friendlier to cyclists? Look north. Over the past few years, Vancouver has been steadily reclaiming space on its busy streets for bikes.

Some business owners worry that this will discourage people from driving downtown because of a perceived lack of parking, but bike traffic is way up thanks to the existing bike lanes. We'll see what they say in six months.

Thanks to GOOD reader David for the tip.
