Cycling Maps

The City of Surrey and TransLink have created maps of the cycling networks in Surrey and White Rock 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 Surrey and White Rock are available at the links below. Cycling maps for other Metro Vancouver municipalities are available at bikehub.ca/maps.

 

Cycling 'Hot Spots' in Surrey & White Rock

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 Surrey & White Rock. 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 Surrey/White Rock Local Committee. Special thanks to BikeMaps.org for all their help and assistance producing these maps.
