New Cycling Facilities

Over the weekend, I received invitations to the grand opening of some new cycling facilities in Metro Vancouver. I thought I would share them with you.

Back in 2011, I posted about how the Township of Langley applied for a grant to expand the Fort to Fort Trail. With this connection now complete, you could walk or cycling along a continuous trail from Green Timbers via Tynehead, Golden Ears Way, and the Fort to Fort trail to Fort Langley.

The grand opening ceremony for this new connection will be held on International Trails Day:

Saturday, June 7, 2014
Ceremony 10:00 a.m.
Corner of 201 Street and 102 Avenue, Langley

You can get to the ceremony by cycling along the trail from Derby Reach Regional Park, taking a free shuttle from Derby Reach Regional Park, or driving and parking on the street near the ceremony site. This trail is also part of the Trans Canada Trail system.

In other cycling news, TransLink has been busy upgrading Main Street-Science World Station. As part of the upgrades, TransLink has installed a large, secure bike parking room. The fee for use is $1 per day to a maximum of $8 per month. Access and billing is via an access card. TransLink has a page on their website where you can sign up for an access card and find more information about parking your bike at Main Street-Science World SkyTrain Station.
