Richard Campbell

I’ve had the pleasure of working with many of you to improve cycling around Vancouver and BC through HUB, BEST, Canada Bikes and the BCCC. Working with political leaders and staff in all levels of government, we have had many successes. From wider sidewalks on the Lions Gate Bridge and the Ironworks Bridge, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Path on the Canada Line Bridge, to the Central Valley Greenway. All told, these improvements total around $70 million.

While there are many reasons why I work to move cycling forward, what I find most rewarding is seeing more and more people cycling. Especially families with children.

Still, there is much to do. BC is a large province with great potential.

We need cycle tracks along main streets so people can safely and comfortably cycle to shops, cafes, restaurants, offices and other businesses.

We need safe connections between communities for locals and tourists. At least wide shoulders free of debris and preferable paths separated from high speed traffic.

We need to improve the Motor Vehicle Act or even better, replace it with a modern road users act that makes the safety of people cycling and walking the priority. Key changes include removing the requirement to ride single file allowing you to legally ride beside friends and families and a safe passing distance law.

We need improved standards for paths and roads ensuring that obstacles are not placed on or near bicycle paths, that fencing and railings do not cause crashes or serious injuries and that shoulders are wide, well maintained and kept clear of hazards. 

We need need to build stronger more organized cycling community across the Province to encourage leaders to make commitments to improve cycling and to provide the grassroots support they need when they show leadership in moving cycling.

We need your support to make this all happen. As the BCCC not a charity, we can’t issue tax receipts. However, that means we are not limited in the amount of money that we can and will devote for advocacy.

I look forward to continue working with you to make this beautiful province a great place for people of all ages to enjoy cycling.

Thank you for your great work and support.

    Average Speed Cameras Could Make BC's Roads Safer

    Average speed cameras that track speed over a section of road have dramatically reduced fatal and serious crashes in Scotland. A much better idea than capping minor injury that would save lives and reduce ICBC's costs.

    Take Action: Email the Premier

    From CBC:

    Average speed cameras track the speed of a motorist at multiple stations over a stretch of road or highway. A car can enter or exit anywhere along the route and, upon exiting, the average speed of the vehicle travelled is calculated and compared to the speed limit. Drivers who go over are automatically ticketed.

    It's a system that Scotland has had in place since 2005. "The impact of them is really quite incredible," said Humza Yousaf, Scotland's minister for transport. "People in Scotland now very much accept that they work."

    Yousaf says that numbers of speeding incidents have dropped dramatically. "When we had them on the A77 [highway] back in 2005, fatal and serious casualties dropped by 74 per cent within a really short period of time," he said "But the real interesting one is the route that we've just done in October 2017 of last year. The first few months of data previous to the cameras, three in five vehicles were speeding. Now it's one in 100 vehicles."

    From Transport Scotland:

    Additionally, this evidence has also shown that only 1 in every 5000 vehicles are now speeding at more than 10mph over the speed limit.  This is also a significant improvement when considered against the fact that 1 out of every 5 vehicles were speeding excessively prior to the installation of ASC.

    Slow Down and Save Lives – 30 is the New 50

    Motor vehicle speed reduction through road design, enforcement and eduction is a key component of the comprehensive Active Transportation Strategy that we are encouraging the Province to implement. We recommend: 

    • A default speed limit of 30 km/h on all residential streets
    • Allowing municipalities to blanket speed limits under 50 km/h
    • More funding for traffic calming

    Email the Premier regarding safer speeds1000px-Zeichen_274.1.svg_-150x150.png

    For people walking and cycling, motor vehicle speed is the major threat. Vision Zero – An ethical approach to safety and mobility, pioneered in Sweden, is a philosophy of road safety that eventually no one will be killed or seriously injured within the road transport system. They recommend a maximum speed of 30km/h at locations with possible conflict between pedestrians and cars which in many cities, would be pretty much all the streets. It acknowledges that people driving cars and walking will make mistakes and these mistakes should not result in people dying. The best way to do that is to lower speeds.

    Higher speeds both increases the likelihood of collisions and increase the severity of collisions. Safe Kids Canada states that regarding pedestrian safety:

    At speeds greater than 30-40 km/h, both drivers and pedestrians may be more likely to make mistakes in judging the time required to stop or cross the street safely.1 In addition, drivers are known to underestimate their speed.2 Reducing vehicle speed has proven to be effective in preventing crashes and reducing the severity of injuries.3

    Even small reductions in vehicle speed can yield significant reductions in injury risk. It is estimated that a pedestrian struck by a car travelling at 50 km/hr is eight times more likely to be killed than someone hit at 30 km/h.

    As shown in the following graphs from The Impact of Lowered Speed Limits in Urban and Metropolitan Areas by J. Acher et al, the research is very compelling.Speed_graph1.png

    Speed_graph2.png

    In the BBC article, 20mph speed zones cut road injuries by 40%, study says, Dr Chris Grundy, of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine estimates that 20mph (32 km/h) zones in London would save 200 lives a year, increasing to 700 if the zones were extended.

    Not surprisingly, lower speeds also correspond to higher levels of cycling. Cities in Europe with 30 km/h speed limits have cycling mode shares from between 25% and 30% compared to 2% to 3% in British cities. The Copenhagenize 30 km/h Zones Work is worth a read.

    Strasbourg is lowering speeds throughout the city to 30km/h to improve safety of cyclists and pedestrians and as stated by the Mayor:

    The public roads no longer belong to automobiles alone. They must be reimagined to be redistributed in a fairer manner between all forms of transportation. The protection of the most vulnerable is thus reinforced in zones in which all users have access but in which the pedestrian is king.

    zones30g.998.jpg
    Barcelona has already had encouraging results by lowering speed limits to 30 km/hr on 300km of single lane roads. Their pilot project reduced injuries by 30%. They are now lowering speeds on all single lane streets to 30 km/hr. Thanks to Ryan Mijker for passing this example on.

    In BC, we still have a ways to go. Municipalities across the province have repeatedly requested that the Province allow them to set blanket speed limits below 50 km/h. Given the lack of provincial action, the only option left to cities is to place 30 km/h signs on every block of a street which can be expensive and time consuming. Fortunately, the City of Vancouver is in the process of doing exactly this on bikeways. As well, in December 2011, the City of Burnaby adopted the recommendation for the trial installation of 30 km/h speed limit signs along sections of existing bikeways in two neighbourhoods.

    Reducing vehicle speeds will also require traffic calming, education and enforcement but 30 km/h speed limits are the critical first step. It sends a clear message that people’s lives are more important than probably getting there a couple of minutes sooner. Emphasis on probably. A collision that is preventable by going slower may mean that they don’t arrive at all or at least delayed for hours at the scene.

    BC Communities Proving Lots of People Will Bike to Work

    Four years ago when we asked people if they wanted to cycle more; 65% said yes, if they could ride on protected bike lanes. Now, more and more BC communities are proving that is indeed the case with the 2016 Census results showing 12 communities with more than 10% of commuters cycling to work. In fact, thanks in large part to increases in cycling to work in BC, cycling is the fastest growing mode of commuting across Canada.

    Please write the Premier to ensure everyone in BC can cycle safety to work

    Leading the way are the Ashnola (33%) and Qualicum (29%) First Nations followed by Thompson-Nicola (21%), Revelstoke (15%), Soowahlie (14%), Quaaout (13%), Victoria, Oak Bay, the Comox First Nation, Stewart and Whistler. See how many people commute via bike in your community via Census MapperSeveral neighbourhoods in Vancouver and Victoria have similarly high levels of cycling to work including Strathcona (18%), Fairfield / Gonzales (17%), Kensington-Cedar Cottage (16%) Grandview Woodlands (15%) and Fernwood (15%). 

    Unfortunately, many BC residents still don’t have access to safe cycling routes for their daily trips. People like to live in areas where they can walk and cycle and are often willing to pay more for housing to do so. Those with lower incomes including many families with children are forced to live in out in areas where it is difficult, dangerous and time consuming to walk and cycle. The result is lower levels of physical activity, higher transportation costs, limited access to jobs & services and a higher risk of injury & death in motor vehicle collisions. Those in rural communities without regular transit service are especially in need of affordable transportation choices. Census Mapper clearly shows the impact of distance on cycling levels.

    Key measures that will help enable those who live further away from employment centres, educational institutions and other key destinations cycle for their daily trips include:

    • Complete networks of all ages and abilities cycling networks that enable everyone to safely cycle via the direct routes
    • Cycle highways to enable longer distance commutes and other trips
    • Motor vehicle free rail trails for cycling, walking and other forms of active transportation as well as horseback riding
    • Electric bikes to enable more people to cycle longer distances

    Please write the Premier. Let him know about your cycling challenges and the improvements you would like to see in your community.

    Ontario Investing $93 Million in Cycling This Year

    Ontario is investing $93 million in cycling infrastructure this year, more than doubling the initial $42.5 million announced earlier this year. This is 10 times the amount that the BC Government has invested this year through the BikeBC cost sharing program. Toronto alone is receiving $25.6 million, almost 3 times the funding for all of BC in in 2017. This is in spite of the fact that BC's rate of cycling commuting in BC is twice that of Ontario's. According to the 2016 Census, 2.5% of people in BC cycle to work while 1.2% commute by bike in Ontario.

    Please Email the Premier. Ask him to dramatically increase investment in cycling.

    The investment is part of Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan and is funded by proceeds from the province's cap on pollution and carbon market. While the BC Government recently announced increases in the Carbon tax can be used for green initiatives, it has yet to commit any of this revenue to cycling infrastructure.

    Chris Ballard, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change states:

    Reducing greenhouse gas pollution from transportation is one of the most important actions we can take to fight climate change. Creating more bike lanes in communities big and small makes it easier and safer for people across the province to choose cleaner, quicker ways of getting around. This investment shows how our Climate Change Action Plan and carbon market are working together to build a healthier planet for future generations.

    Eleanor McMahon, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport says:

    Cycling keeps our communities healthy, active and well connected. We want to ensure that people across Ontario have the infrastructure they need to keep cycling safe, accessible and easy for all. The benefits to jumping on a bike are endless – it can be a wonderful way to explore our cities and a healthy method to get those much-needed errands done

    Everyone should be able to safely cycle everywhere.

    Cycle Highways

     

    Cycle Super Highways (also know as Bicycle Superhighways) are high standard and continuous paved bicycle routes designed to reduce travel times and thus facilitate long distance (5-20 km) cycling trips. They connect communities and major destinations including residential areas, concentrations of jobs, schools and public transit.

    Especially when combined with the use of electric bicycles, Cycle Super Highways can dramatically increase the distances people are willing to ride thus significantly reducing the use of motor vehicles.

    Features include:

    • Separate, high standard paths reserved for cycling separated from pedestrians and motor vehicles
    • Two-way cycleway, separate lanes, 3.0 to 4.0m wide depending on volumes
    • Design speeds of up to 40km/h on flat sections, higher on downhill
    • Requirements for maximum grades and minimum curve radii.
    • High operating and maintenance standards including frequent snow, ice and debris removal
    • Grade separated crossings (overpasses or underpasses) of major roads and highways
    • Few stops
    • Lighting
    • Greenwaves - Traffic signals synchronized to average cycling speeds

    Gehl-1.jpg

    Cycling Embassy of Denmark

    Keys to success is cost-sharing funding from senior levels of government and a coordinating body that can help ensure that routes are of a consistent high quality across jurisdictions.

    While even with Cycle Super Highways, the mode share of longer trips by bicycle will likely be lower than that of shorter trips, the benefits of longer trips by bike are much greater both from a transportation and an environmental point of view. For example, one 15km bike trip replacing a car trip has 5 times the GHG emissions reductions as a 3km. Basically getting 4% of 15km trips by bike will have pretty much the same benefits as 20% of 3km trips by bike.

    Cycle Super Highways have been implemented or are being planning in countries including:

    • Netherlands:15 implemented, 20 planned
    • London: 12 planned
    • Australia: planned in Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane
    • Germany: 1 under construction, Munich: 14 planned
    • Copenhagen

    Our recommendations to the BC Government include:

    1. Develop guidelines and best practices for Cycle Super Highways 
    2. Work with regions and municipalities to plan and implement Cycle Super Highways
    3. Include Cycle Super Highways when building and upgrading Provincial highways and bridges
    4. Provide regions and municipalities with assistance to design Cycle Super Highways 
    5. Provide funding for  Cycle Super Highways

    Possible Cycle Super Highways for British Columbia include:

    • BC Parkway
    • Central Valley Greenway
    • Portside Greenway, Ironworkers Memorial Bridge, Mountain Highway Interchange
    • North Shore Spirit Trail
    • Lochside Trail
    • Galloping Goose

    BC Budget Report Recommends Increased Investment in Cycling & Walking

    Some good news! The Finance Committee's report on the 2018 Budget consultations recommends the creation of an active transportation strategy including increased investment in active transportation infrastructure, education, promotion and safety. 

    This marks the first time the creation active transportation strategy has been mentioned in a budget report, an important step forward. Still, work needs to be done to ensure the BC Government promptly moves forward on the creation of a strategy and commits the resources needed to create and implement a great active transportation that will enable everyone to safely cycle for their daily trips.

    Please Email the Premier for an Active Transportation Strategy and Increased Funding Cycling

    Specifically, from the Report on the Budget 2018 Consultation (page 68):

    Active Transportation (Cycling and Walking)

    81. Create a provincial active transportation strategy, including increased investment in active transportation infrastructure, education and promotion, as well as safety initiatives.

    The report said quite a few of the survey responses focused on active transportation and transit. Thanks to all of you who responded to the survey or made submissions!

    BC Cycling Coalition Executive Director Richard Campbell made a presentation to the committee in September highlighting the need for safe affordable active transportation networks in communities across BC.

    More Bucks for Biking - Take the BC Budget Survey!

    Last year, thanks to your efforts engaging in the budget process and writing letters, the BC Government increased its investment in cycling from $6 million to $9.25 million. A good increase but still not enough to enable everyone to cycle for their daily trips. Much more is needed. 

    The BC Legislature's Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services is asking for your input.  

    Please complete the survey or make a submission by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, October 16. 

    Here are some suggestions for survey responses that you can copy over (If your responses disappear, just click Launch Survey button again). Always good to add your local cycling projects and other ideas. Especially ones that will have a big impact. More in our submission from last year. Please also send your comments to the Premier.

    Question One
    What are your top priorities to help make life more affordable in British Columbia?

    -  Investing $100 million per year in networks of bike paths, protected bike lanes and sidewalks in communities around the province. Every child, woman and man in BC should be able to chose to walk and cycle for their daily trips. Cycling and walking are the most affordable transportation solutions both for individuals and governments. This will also help make our roads safer reducing crashes, injuries, health care costs and ICBC rates.

    - Removing the PST and add rebating for electric bikes. This will help make green transportation more affordable for many people in BC especially with long commutes or mobility challenges. It is unfair that there are rebates for electric cars but not for electric bikes.

    - Increased funding for maintenance of shoulders, bike lanes and paths used by people who cycle.

    - More funding for road safety education focused on cycling.

    - Increased funding for cycling skills training for children. 

    Question Two

    What service improvements should be given priority?

    - More enforcement of traffic laws focused on saving lives; speeding, distracted driving and drunk driving. This will help save lives, reduce healthcare costs and lower ICBC rates.

    Question Three
    What are your ideas, approaches, and/or priorities for creating good jobs and to build a sustainable economy in every corner of our province?

    - Investing funding in cycling and walking networks across the Province will create jobs in communities around the province.

    - Cycling and walking infrastructure generates significantly more jobs per amount invested than road projects.

    - BC has great cycling tourism potential. Unfortunately, BC is not investing enough in building and maintaining high quality cycling tourism routes. For example, sections of the Trans Canada Trail and Kettle Valley Railway are unridable due to poor maintenance and damage caused by motorized vehicles.

    - Good cycling and walking facilities will attract talent and businesses to BC communities.

  • Municipal Leaders Support Automated Speed Enforcement by Schools, Parks & Playgrounds

    Municipal leaders called on the BC government to allow them to use speed cameras on local roads at the 2017 UBCM conference. Automated speed enforcement has proven to be effective around the world at lowering crashes, injuries and fatalities. According to the ICBC Review, just enabling speed enforcement on red light cameras in BC could reduce the severity of crashes by 11% to 45%.

    From UBCM 2017 Resolutions Book, page 165:

    Whereas local governments must address traffic safety challenges to ensure the well-being of our residents while balancing limited financial and RCMP resources.

    And whereas traffic speed enforcement in residential areas, playground and school zones is labour intensive and the ability to use photo radar as an enforcement tool has proven to be effective and efficient in the management of speed:

    Therefore be it resolved that UBCM call on the provincial government to amend provincial legislation to permit local governments to independently implement photo radar on local roads at the local government’s expense. 

    From the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention

    Speed cameras can reduce crashes substantially. [Decina, Thomas, et al., 2007] reviewed 13 safety impact studies of automated speed enforcement internationally, including one study from a United States jurisdiction. The best-controlled studies suggest injury crash reductions are likely to be in the range of 20 to 25 percent at conspicuous, fixed camera sites.

    We are concerned that mobile enforcement vans could be parking in bike lanes, shoulders or otherwise block cycling facilities. Fixed cameras may prove to be a better option both at improving safety and increasing the likelihood that drovers will know the cameras are their and thus lowering their speed to avoid tickets. 

    It is time that the BC government make our roads safer for people cycling, walking and driving. Please write the Premier.

  • Building Biking and Walking Infrastructure Creates More Jobs than Roads

    Building bike lanes, paths and sidewalks creates more construction jobs than road projects. For each $1 million, cycling projects create 11.4 jobs. Therefore, investing $1 billion in cycling would create around 11,400 jobs in communities around BC.

    The Pedestrian and Bicycle Infrastructure: A National Study of Employment Impacts by the University of Massachusetts Political Economic Research Institute found that:

    For each $1 million, the cycling projects in this study create a total of 11.4 jobs within the state where the project is located. Pedestrian-only projects create an average of about 10 jobs per $1 million and multi-use trails create nearly as many, at 9.6 jobs per $1 million. Infrastructure that combines road construction with pedestrian and bicycle facilities creates slightly fewer jobs for the same amount of spending, and road-only projects create the least, with a total of 7.8 jobs per $1 million.

    Make Our Roads Safer for Everyone

    The BC Road Safety Strategy has a lot of good recommendations that if implemented, would make our roads much safer for everyone cycling, walking and driving. Unfortunately, the vast majority of policy measures have not been implemented and infrastructure changes have not been made on the scale needed to make much of a difference.

    Take Action: Please Email the Premier and Ministers

    Not surprisingly, the result has been increased crashes and higher ICBC rates. It is time the BC Government got really serious about road safety.

    Transportation Choices

    One key measure that we strongly support is reducing driving by providing people with excellent cycling, walking and transit choices. Sadly, the government has been underinvesting in cycling, walking and transit for decades giving many no reasonable cycling, walking and transit options.

    Safer Speed Limits

    Slower speeds decrease the number and severity of crashes and are especially important to make our reads safer for people walking and cycling.

    • Reduced speed limits on highways
    • Giving communities the authority to set default speed limits below 50 km/h
    • Default 30 km/h on local roads

    Enforcement

    The ICBC review by Ernst & Young covered in a Vancouver Sun article supported the following measures:

    • Increasing the number of red light cameras at intersections and using them for automated speed enforcement
    • Automated speed cameras which international research has shown could cut fatal and serious collisions by more than a third
    • Really cracking down on distracted driving with increased penalties and greater enforcement
    • Doubling the number of roadside breath tests and significantly increasing penalties.

    People Who Bike To Work Live Longer, Have 45% Lower Risk Of Cancer

    A new study from researchers at the University of Glasgow found that people who cycle to work live longer having a lower risk of death from any cause. They also state that population health may be increased by policies that encourage active transportation including the building of bike lanes.

    CNBC reports:

    The study, published on Thursday in the BMJ, found that compared to "a non-active commute", riding a bike to work was associated with a 45 percent lower risk of cancer and a 46 percent lower risk of heart disease.

    The article in StudyFinds states:

    The study examined how 264,000 people — averaging about 53 years old and pulled from a British database focusing on biological information — got to work each day. The participants indicated on a questionnaire their modes of transportation — be it by car, bike, public transportation, or foot. They were also polled on their level of physical activity.

    In a follow-up about five years after the study began, researchers then determined which participants had either died or were admitted to a hospital at some point during the study. They determined that the participants who commuted to work by bicycle had the lowest risk of death from any cause and lowest risk of cancer.

    Of course, the researchers caution that the results are strictly observational, and that cause-and-effect can’t be concluded from this study. “The findings, if causal, suggest population health may be improved by policies that increase active commuting, particularly cycling, such as the creation of cycle lanes, cycle hire or purchase schemes, and better provision for cycles on public transport,” the study notes.

    Communities on the Move - Biking, Walking, Transit & Wheelchairs

    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.

    {{show_more?html=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.}}

    {{show_more?html=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.}}{{action?html=Yes. I want Healthy Transportation CHOICES!&anchor=#mailer}}

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.}}

    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.

    Save the Trans Canada Trail in BC from Motorized Vehicles

    {{show_more?height==300px&html==
    trail_big_puddle.jpegLarge sections of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) Rail Trails in BC are being threatened by motorized use including ATVs, dual sport bikes, motorcycles, automobiles and 4x4s.

    The use of these Rail Trails by motorised vehicles is ruining the surface of the trails making it very difficult if not impossible to cycle, walk or use wheelchairs comfortably on them. The noise and pollution of gas-powered vehicles makes using these trails much less pleasant for other trail users and the speed of these vehicles pose a safety risk.

    These rail trails, which include the Kettle Valley Rail Trail and the Columbia and Western Rail Trail form a significant portion of the Trans Canada Trail in BC, linking rural and urban residents with health and fitness benefits, active transportation opportunities and have great low-carbon tourism and recreational potential.

    For the past 20 years, volunteers across BC have worked to obtain the Provincial and Federal dollars and public donations necessary to assemble the TCT in British Columbia as a recreational greenway for cyclists, walkers and equestrians across British Columbia. The rail corridors were reserved and funded with the expectation that they were for cycling, walking and equestrians.  Adjacent landowners supported rails to trails on this condition because motorised uses are often incompatible or disruptive to farming and ranching.

    Because rail trail gradients are ideal for cycling, they are also highly attractive to cycle tourists who want to travel long distances on a pathway without highway traffic.  When the cycling tourism potential of these trails is developed, they will offer a superior trail product that would provide good family-wage jobs through trail related services and products and improve the livability of adjacent trail communities.  The Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association completed in 2015 a strategy plan supported by Destination BC describing how these rail trails could be developed into a tourism product.

    We need to have money invested in natural resource management and transportation to solve the impasse with motorized recreation users.  Communities along the rail trail corridor deserve to benefit from gains in health and fitness, active transportation, and cycle tourism initiatives, as has been done elsewhere in North America.  One of the suggested ways to move ahead is to consider designating the TCT a linear park or greenway officially so that cultural, historical and natural resources are protected to the full extent possible, such as under the BC Heritage Act.  

    The status quo is not acceptable making it necessary that something must be done.  People cycling are being routed off the rail trails due to their poor condition onto highways.  These rail trails are often the only safe options for travelling between communities for those who can’t or don’t want to drive. The only other options are roads with high speed traffic that often don’t even have shoulders.

    We recognize that in addition to recreation, ATVs and other gas powered vehicles are used as low cost transportation by some who can’t afford to drive or are unable to drive. With rural poverty being a challenge around BC, we will work with groups and individuals to help address these issues with solutions that do not involve the use of motorized vehicles on rail trails. While improving cycling and walking will help many, we realize that not everyone can or wants to cycle or walk longer distances. Possible measures to consider are:

    • Encourage the government to fund and build motorised trails that provide needed access without the use of rail trails
    • Allowing ATVs to use road shoulders
    • Allowing ATVs to use roads in a community
