Cycling safety improvements continue on YVR’s Sea Island home this summer, with the widening of bike lanes on both sides of the Arthur Laing Bridge.
The upgrade is the latest in a series of improvements to Sea Island’s 24-km cycling network. Last year, a new Russ Baker Way Pathway was added as a means to offer safe bike access between YVR and Burkeville. This one-kilometre path also connects to Larry Berg Flight Path Park, which features a commuter station that’s complete with a bike pump and repair station.
YVR’s Sea Island home is a perfect destination for cycling. With extensive bike paths and lanes, parking and Canada Line access, biking near the airport is accessible to every level of enthusiast. Home to one of the world’s largest salmon runs and an estuary providing a major staging area for migratory birds, the environment surrounding YVR is an ideal natural setting for commute, team or recreational riding.
