Cycling Maps

The City of Maple Ridge, City of Pitt Meadows, and TransLink have created maps of the cycling networks in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to help all cyclists navigate safely and comfortably on their bikes. These maps are updated regularly to provide current information on cycling and show the comfort levels of each route based on how separated it is from traffic. PDF versions of the maps for Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows are available at the links below. Cycling maps for other Metro Vancouver municipalities are available at bikehub.ca/maps.

 

Cycling 'Hot Spots' in Maple Ridge - Pitt Meadows

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 Maple Ridge - Pitt Meadows. 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 above for the Maple Ridge - Pitt Meadows Local Committee. Special thanks to BikeMaps.org for all their help and assistance in producing these maps.
