If you work on Sea Island, or are a cycling enthusiast, you’ll be happy to know that getting to YVR on two wheels is easier than ever with YVR’s new bike route map.
The cycle map highlights bicycle lanes, shared roads, paved pathways and local roads. If you need to lock-up your bike, the airport also has five dedicated bicycle racks located throughout Sea Island at Canada Line Templeton Station, Sea Island Station, Airport South, the International Terminal, Arrivals Level 2, and the Domestic Terminal.
Marked cycling lanes on the Arthur Laing Bridge to Vancouver, and wider lanes on the No. 2 Road Bridge into Richmond make it easy to get to and from YVR. Don’t let the winter weather deter cycling as a commuting option.Cyclists can also benefit from combining cycling and transit use as bicycles are allowed on the Canada Line train and most transit buses are outfitted with front-mounted bicycle racks.
If you’re not commuting, but are taking a leisurely ride, Sea Island is home to various parks for exploration. Be sure to explore Iona Beach Regional Park, which offers a four kilometer jetty that is popular with cyclists and walkers.
Whether you’re commuting or recreationally riding, ensure that you protect yourself by wearing the appropriate safety equipment.
