Cycling Strategy

Investing in cycling will help create safer streets for people of all ages especially children & seniors, healthier more connected communities, long-term savings in health care & transportation costs and significant economic benefits for the Province of B.C.

With this in mind, the BCCC and our member organizations are encouraging the Province of BC to implement a comprehensive Cycling Strategy for BC that enables residents and visitors of all ages and abilities to safely and conveniently cycle throughout the province for transportation, recreation, and vacation. This strategy includes:

  • Accelerated investment in cycling infrastructure and facilities;
  • Improved cycling and road user education;
  • Improved standards & more funding for maintenance and hazard removal on roads and paths used by cyclists.
  • Amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act to improve safety and clarity;
  • Reduced speeds in communities through lower speed limits and traffic calming;
  • The implementation of a comprehensive cycling tourism strategy; and
  • Legislation that gives municipalities and TransLink the authority to implement new funding sources for cycling, walking and transit improvements.
