The Airport Authority is calling on cyclists – just in time for Bike to Work Week, May 30 to June 5 – to provide feedback on what the next generation of cycling routes and infrastructure could look like on YVR’s Sea Island home.
As part of its commitment to sustainable transportation and connectivity, the Airport Authority is conducting an online survey until June 30 that is designed to garner feedback from cyclists to ensure that future infrastructure and route improvements best reflect the needs of users.
The survey is accessible at www.surveymonkey.com/yvrbike and is geared to cyclists who commute through, to or visit Sea Island, but also those interested in doing so in the future. Questions focus on route, parking and infrastructure improvements.
Some new improvements to the existing cycling network are already on the way for 2011. In addition to route enhancements along Inglis Drive and the south end of Templeton Street, the Airport Authority is also adding a connection from the off-road path at the Arthur Laing Bridge to the Templeton Canada Line Station.
Sea Island is an ideal destination for bicycle enthusiasts interested in commuting to and from work in a sustainable way, or interested in exploring new recreational routes. Home to one of the world’s largest salmon runs and an estuary providing a major staging area for migratory birds, the environment surrounding YVR is an ideal natural setting to explore by two wheels.
