Recent Successes

The HUB Cycling Burnaby Committee recently worked with the City of Burnaby engineering department to remove a hazard for people cycling. A curb lip was causing falls and injuries. Due to a gap in the network, many people cycling used it an informal bike connection. Thanks to the Burnaby Committees advocacy efforts, the engineering department ground down the lip, removing the hazard. Learn more. 

The Gilmore Overpass is a dangerous part of the Sea to River Bikeway. Thanks to the work of the committee, and people like you that wrote in, Council has recently approved a safe and comfortable place to cycle with a 3.5 m wide multi-use path on Gilmore Diversion, Still Creek Ave to Canada Way.

Cycling 'Hot Spots' in Burnaby 

As part of HUB's State of Cycling project, BikeMaps.org produced a series of maps highlighting conflict areas for cyclists across Metro Vancouver. See the map for 'hot spots' in Burnaby. Please note that these maps show conflicts, but don't account for ridership levels. You can log conflicts/crashes and near misses on BikeMaps.org. Help improve cycling infrastructure and close 'gaps' by getting involved with HUB's work in your area. See details below for the Burnaby Local Committee. Special thanks to BikeMaps.org for all their help and assistance producing these maps.
