Earlier this month, Vancouver approved $25 million in spending on new bike paths.  Over the coming years, a total of 55 kilometers of new bike lanes will be added to the city’s 460-kilometer network.  Planners hope that by 2020, 10 percent of all trips in the city will be made by bicycle (A good outline of bike plans and routes is available on the City of Vancouver website).

For those interested in making an impact right now, there’s no better way to start than the city’s annual Bike to Work Week.   Held from May 31 to June 6 and organized by the nonprofit Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition, Bike to Work Week encourages residents to leave their cars at home and commute using only pedal power. It’s part of a range of events planned in June as part of Bike Month, including a unique two-wheeled treasure hunt on Jericho Beach.
