    Hwy 17 (South Fraser Perimeter Road) from River road to Hwy 15. This is a designated bike route that has 6’ to 8’ shoulders. In some locations there is so much gravel and debris on the shoulders cyclists are forced to ride close to traffic (on white line) to avoid flats. I ride the route regularly while commuting and I am constantly getting flats. The wide shoulders are designed to ensure cyclists safety, yet poor conditions are unnecessarily forcing cyclists closer and closer to Hwy speed traffic.

    On the cycling route between Cambie and Heather on West 29 ave , there is a hospital shuttle that runs every 15 minutes—this is a busy cycle route—hospital employees and students for Eric Hamber—

    At the corner of Cambie and 29, there is a 6 story construction job such that there are cars parked along both sides of West 29 and often trucks turning in and out—-they are enough of a hazard for cyclists —often the shuttle has to pull over to let a car coming the other way pass

    I have tried the city of Vancouver —various departments -and the police —to try to get the bus to run on a different street
    BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HIT

    I’m hoping you can get something done—thank you
