  • Help Make Canada Bike Friendly - Support A National Cycling Strategy

    Canada Bikes is working with British Columbia Cycling Coalition and organizations across Canada to encourage the Federal Government to develop, fund and implement a National Cycling Strategy. Our vision is straightforward - a Canada where people of all ages and abilities can cycle safely, conveniently and enjoyably to, from and within any community in the country. Encouraging more people to ride a bike has many benefits - for our health, for our wallets and for our planet.  Our country can benefit immensely from joining the many countries that have developed a national cycling strategy. A national cycling strategy is a plan to achieve the overall goal of more cycling written in consultations with the public and stakeholders. It is evidence-based, includes  financial implications and results in a set of policies, guidelines and actions. A Canadian cycling strategy will guide all levels of government and partners as they work to improve conditions for cycling across the country.  Last June, we stood next to Minister McKenna on the steps of Parliament as she called for the development of a national cycling strategy. Since then we have been working closely to ensure that pedestrians and children getting to school are just as integral to our plan and see strategies of their own developed too. Now 141 organizations from across the country have joined our call. More here.

  • Show your support for cycle highways in Metro Vancouver

    As part of UnGaptheMap, HUB Cycling is encouraging bold and innovative infrastructure to connect Metro Vancouver's cycling network. One such solution is cycle highways which are suitable for all ages and abilities and would provide direct, safe routes across longer distances and connect communities and destinations across our region. Building cycle highways would improve cycling efficiency and attractiveness, shift people out of other congested modes and provide benefits such as reduced greenhouse gases, healthier habits and viable active transportation options for residents and tourists to get to destinations across Metro Vancouver by bike. Cycle highways already exist in countries such as Denmark, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands, and the UK and could be implemented along routes such as the BC Parkway, Lower Lynn interchanges, and parallel to sections of Lougheed Highway.   Show your support for cycle highways by emailing your MLA and BC's elected leaders and asking them to consider and allocate funding for cycle highways in all new projects. With your support, cycle highways could play a major role in achieving the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure's cycling policy objectives, and in doing so, significantly ungap Metro Vancouver's cycling network. Here are some key points that you can incorporate into your letter... Despite cycling being the fastest growing mode of transport in Metro Vancouver, the cycling network is disconnected and a lot of people are unable to find safe routes to their destinations. Over 40% of locals want to cycle but currently don't, and for many of them it's because they are scared of dangerous road conditions. I support HUB Cycling's UnGapTheMap campaign and urge the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) and TransLink to provide increased investment into cycling infrastructure. Sustained, high level funding would help create a safer, more connected network that would get more people cycling.   Cycle highways, which are getting more people biking in countries such as Denmark, Germany, Norway, the Netherlands and the UK, would be a suitable solution for many of Metro Vancouver's highest priority gaps. Cycle highways are suitable for all ages and abilities and provide direct, safe routes across longer distances, connecting communities and major destinations. The introduction of cycle highways would reduce congestion and greenhouse gases, provide healthier transportation choices and would encourage residents and tourists to access destinations across Metro Vancouver by bike. Please support safer cycling in Metro Vancouver by backing the introduction of cycle highways and considering this solution when planning all road and transit projects. By working closely with stakeholders, such as HUB Cycling and municipalities, to plan and implement cycle highways, Metro Vancouver could become one of the safest and most connected cycling regions in North America. Please write BC's leaders in support of cycle highways!
  • Cycling is Mass Transportation - It Needs to Funded Accordingly

    Increases in the number of people cycling and walking in BC communities including Victoria, Whistler, North Vancouver, Kelowna and Vancouver, demonstrate that cycling and walking are mass transportation solutions worthy of substantial investment. To help enable everyone to cycle and walk for their daily trips, we recommend that the Provincial Government accelerate its cycling and walking investment to $100 million per year. This, along with investment from communities and the Federal Government, will enable communities to build out their cycling networks thus enabling the benefits including GHG emissions reductions and health care cost savings to be realized sooner. This funding would be used to upgrade Provincial roads and bridges; complete cycling and walking networks in communities; provide Safe and Healthy Routes to School; and for paths used by visitors and residents.

This investment will help address the deficit estimated to be $2 billion for cycling and $2.6 billion for walking. Around $7 billion will be invested in B.C. over the next 3 years in transportation and the Government is projecting surpluses of over $200 million per year so there is plenty of funding available. Cycling and walking are popular activities that many people in B.C. want to do more often Almost 70% of adults in B.C. ride a bicycle at least once a year, 42% at least once a month and 25% at least once a week. Cycling and walking are especially popular among young people (18-35) with 8% cycling and 10% walking to work. Many people want to cycle more, with 65% indicating they would ride more if there were separated bike lanes that protected them from traffic. 14% of adults 18-35 years old say cycling would be their ideal commute. 34% of B.C. residents say walking (23%) or cycling (11%) would be their ideal commute.

There is broad public support for cycling improvements 72% of B.C. On the Move Engagement Survey respondents supported enhancing cycling infrastructure. Where significant investments have been made, cycling has increased dramatically Between 2008 and 2015, daily cycling trips by City of Vancouver residents increased from 50,000 to 131,000. In 2015, 10% of Vancouver residents cycled to work, up from 4.4% in 2011. In the Central Okanagan, daily cycling trips increased by 43% to 15,400 between 2007 and 2013. Whistler’s cycling commute mode share was 8% in 2011, an increase of 31% since 2006. Many trips are within reasonable cycling distance In the Netherlands, electrically assisted bicycle trips average a distance of 9.8 km each way, while regular bicycle trips average 6.3 km. According to the 2011 National Household Survey, 42% of commutes are under 5 km. In B.C. 65% of all commutes are under 10 km, making them practical using an electric bicycle. Inadequate Investment - Active Transportation Deficit Regions and communities across the province have produced extensive cycling network plans. Unfortunately, due to lack of investment, these cycling networks may not be complete for 30 to 50 years unless senior levels of government dramatically increase funding. The BC Communities Road Safety Survey identified pedestrian and cyclist safety as top issues. For the the 81 municipalities that responded, “The most commonly reported challenges to implementing road safety activities were funding and staff with expertise.” TheCapital Regional District’s  Pedestrian & Cycling Master Plan estimated the cost of upgrading the bike network to attract people of all ages and abilities is around $275 million. In order to meet its target of 10%, TransLink has estimated that completing all-ages cycling networks around the Metro Vancouver region will cost at least $850 million. Kelowna’s cycling and walking Plan is estimated to cost $267 million. While the city is currently putting money aside for the program, staff have warned that at the current level of funding, the city will only have approximately $90 million to fund the plan. Squamish’s recently approved active transportation plan is estimated to cost $36 million.   Surrey’s cycling plan includes over 400 km of additional bike lanes and paths. With current funding, it plans on completing around 12 km per year, but has indicated that additional funding from senior levels of government would speed-up the implementation of the plan. Internationally, other jurisdictions are committing to significant increases in cycling. Norway, whose population is only slightly larger than B.C.’s, is planning to invest $1.25 billion in Cycling Highways to link suburbs to city centres. More Information Budget Submission - 2017 (includes references for information above) Communities on the Move recommending investing $100 million per year in active transportation.    
  • Support Healthy Transportation - Biking, Walking, Transit & Wheelchair - Communities on the Move

    Creating Smart, Fair and Healthy Transportation Options For All BC Communities The BC Cycling Coalition is proud to be a part of the Communities on the Move Declaration, joining partners including BC Healthy Living Alliance, the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Lung Association. Show your support by sending a quick email to the leaders and candidates. We strongly encourage organizations and businesses to support improved cycling, walking and transit by endorsing the Declaration. Vision We envision that in 10 years, across BC – in communities small and large, it will be easy, safe and enjoyable to get around, whether by walking, biking, ride-sharing, by public transit or in a wheelchair. We want to see the provincial government making progressive investments that support active, connected and healthy communities. This vision is guided by the following VALUES: Healthy Communities: Safe biking and walking routes, good street design and regular transit should be available to all British Columbians so that it is easy to be active and healthy. These can also make it easier for people to be socially connected which is important for mental health. Mobility for All: A range of transportation options should be available to all British Columbians – including those who live in smaller communities, and vulnerable groups such as children, older adults and those with disabilities or low incomes as well as non-drivers – so that everyone can have access to education, employment, shopping, healthcare, recreation, cultural events and social connections. Clean Air and Environment: Public transit and active modes of transportation should be available to all British Columbians as these can reduce local air pollution and carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. Economic Opportunities and Cost Savings: Active and public transportation facilities are smart investments as they can stimulate local business and tourism in communities of all sizes. These investments can also control rising healthcare costs because regular physical activity keeps people healthier and out of the healthcare system. Consideration of Community Needs: All BC communities should have a range of convenient, affordable transportation options that are tailored to their context – whether urban or remote, dense or dispersed, small or suburban. Safety for All Road Users: The design and rules of the road should ensure that all British Columbians can arrive at their destination safely. How do we get there? A Provincial Active Transportation Strategy Invest $100M per year over the next 10 years to support the development of local cycling and walking infrastructure within a larger provincial network.2. Prioritize the completion of connected cycling and walking transportation networks. Develop an Active Transportation unit within the Ministry of Transportation to provide professional planning and policy expertise at the provincial level. Invest in Active School Travel Planning and standarized cycling education for healthy, active children. Investment in transit Invest in the full implementation of the BC Transit Strategic Plan 2030 and local governments’ ‘Transit Future Plans’ to grow transit service and meet local needs.1. Ensure a fair share of capital funding and secure, predictable regional revenue tools for the full implementation of the TransLink Mayor’s Council 10-Year Vision. Continue and expand the universal bus pass (UPASS) program to students and employees of post-secondary institutions. Invest in public transportation systems that serve small, rural, remote and isolated communities such as the use of school buses and bus services that feed into regional centres. Commitment to equity Ensure transit accessibility for people on disability assistance by increasing the affordability of transit passes. Improve handyDART service to meet demand and to expand accessibility to evenings, Sundays and holidays. Ensure funding is allocated geographically and equitably across the province. Recognize infrastructure deficits for pedestrian, cycling and transit modes as well as limitations faced by rural, remote, geographically isolated and small communities as part of funding criteria. Consideration of Regional Needs Work with local governments to establish a Rural Transportation Strategy. Develop and invest in innovative community transportation systems, ride-sharing, tele-services and telecommuting options that can serve rural and remote British Columbians. Develop and support implementation of Winter City Guidelines that give residents the opportunity to be active all year long. This should include operational measures such as snow-clearing for active transportation networks and improved winter road maintenance. Support the Metro Vancouver Mayor’s Council to pursue alternative funding mechanisms. Commitment to Safety Support the BC Road Safety Strategy Vision Zero: work with partners to create safer streets and to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries on the roads of BC. Speed limits should be reduced and strictly enforced, including through the use of cameras and other proven safety measures. Prioritize safety measures for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and those in wheelchairs and mobility devices.  
  • MP Johns Introduces National Cycling Strategy Bill

    MP Gord Johns (Courtenay-Alberni) and Alexandre Boulerice (Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie) introduced a private member's bill to establish a National Cycling Strategy on October 4. The BC Cycling Coalition strongly supports a national strategy where the Federal Government works with the provinces and municipalities to enable all Canadians to safety cycle. A Canadian Cycling Strategy will: Commit the federal government to set clear targets for the expansion of cycling friendly infrastructure; Encourage more Canadians to choose cycling as their mode of transportation; Improve national safety standard measures, such as side guard rails for trucks; Support the cycling industry in Canada; Increase education for cyclists, pedestrians and motorists. “We need to do more to make Canada a cycling nation,” said Johns who has biked to work on Parliament Hill every day since being elected. “It’s time for a national plan to get more Canadians using this low cost, environmentally friendly, and healthy mode of transportation.” From MP Johns Many other OECD countries have already adopted cycling strategies and have seen a significant increase in cycling as a result. Canada lags behind in many cycling indicators, including the number of children who cycle to school which remains at 2%. Whereas in Germany, 15% of children cycle to school, and in the Netherlands 50% of children cycle to school. A National Cycling Strategy will lead to a healthier society, more livable communities, safer cycling options, reduced congestion, and significant savings for our healthcare system. Additionally, Canada's unique landscape is a perfect draw for cycling tourism.

  • Kids on Wheels program brings a passion for cycling to a younger generation

    Some great coverage of Kids on Wheels in Vancity Buzz by Melissa & Chris Bruntlett . Kids on wheels introduces young children to cycling through hands on experience with runner bikes, cycling toys, art and books. “There is still a lot of car culture embedded in the way young children play,” states Goldstein, referring to the car mats, trucks, and toy cars prevalent in daycares. “I wanted to help bring bike culture into that environment.” Goldstein set to work developing a five day, age appropriate program, combining 45-minutes of in-class learning with equal time experience learning on balance (pedal-less) bikes. “It’s amazing to watch them grow in ability and confidence over the course of the five days.” Goldstein recalls. Through a grant from MEC, as well as support from the BC Cycling Coalition, she has been able to offer the program at two daycares in East Vancouver, as well as two separate sessions at Berwick Daycare in UBC.  More here.

  • Remove the PST and Add Rebates for Electric Bikes

    Currently in B.C. bicycles and transportation fares are exempt from PST charges, and clean energy vehicles are eligible for rebates up to $5,000. Purchases of new electric bicycles, and their electric parts, are charged PST, and are not eligible for rebates. Something doesn’t seem right here, does it? For a brief period of time, when B.C. was running the HST tax, electric bikes did, in fact, receive tax exemptions. It seems that in the transition back to the system we currently use, minor details such as taxes on assisted bikes slipped through the cracks.   For small business owners however, this detail feels rather significant. "It's really quite a hassle." Says Paul Dragan of Reckless Bikes. "When repairing an electric bike, we have to charge PST on the electric parts like the battery and motor while there is no PST on the bike parts like wheels and brakes.". Creating two separate lines, and a once unnecessary step to small business’s financial records, is cumbersome and aggravating. For individuals, the re-added tax could be a barrier to purchasing, or converting to, an e-bike. Electric bikes suitable for commuting typically cost $1500-$3000, making the suggested PST exemption worth about $105 - $210 for buyers, plus on-going PST charges on maintaining parts. Additionally, a rebate would provide financial incentives for individuals to incorporate active transportation into their daily lives. Electric bikes are being studied by biking centres around the world. The Netherlands, and Norway have measured significant increases in bicycle trip length, and frequency due to use of electric bikes.  In 2013, a survey in the Netherlands reported that 5 percent of the total population, and 10 percent of the 60+ population owned an e-bike, and those with electric models ride twice as many kilometers compared to the 60+ cyclists with a regular bike. In 2014, they found that those with e-bikes rode 22% more kilometres per week, and the average commuting distance rose from 6.3 to 9.8 kilometres. Assisted bikes make up 21% of bicycles sales in the Netherlands. Electric bicycles remove accessibility barriers by allowing riders to conquer hills, speeds, and distances that would otherwise be impossible for some people. These machines, that emit zero carbon, make active transportation a viable option for a broader population, opening it up to all ages and abilities, especially in combination with safe cycling infrastructure. With B.C.’s aggressive climate targets for 2050, and municipal initiatives to increase active transportation, removing financial barriers to access electric bicycles is logical. Considering that it was not long ago that we actually didn’t pay taxes on these bikes, it is more of an error correction, than a radical request. The British Columbia Cycling Coalition has submitted a formal request to remove the PST and add rebates, similar to those available for electric cars, as part of their Climate Leadership Action Plan recommendation. Also included in the recommendations a billion dollars over ten years for bike paths and protected bike lanes as well as improved design standards that can safely accommodate electric bikes and enable longer distance commuting.
