Description

The Lower Mainland's most popular cycling guide—updated and expanded with forty-five bike routes.

Considered the fastest-growing method of travel in Vancouver, cycling is a good way to stay fit, save money, and have little impact on the environment. This guide provides forty-five good reasons to do all three and have fun at the same time.

Easy Cycling around Vancouver features dozens of bike routes to discover across the Lower Mainland and northwestern Washington State. From Squamish to Bellingham, Richmond to Agassiz, Jean and Norman Cousins take you on bike tours along winding backroads and quiet country lanes, pointing out the best cafes and swimming holes as well as local flora and historic sites.

This updated and expanded second edition includes:

  • forty-five tours (nine all-new ones) ranging from 10 to 45 kilometres long
  • concise, easy-to-follow maps and route descriptions
  • helpful tips about cycling basics, safety, and trip planning

The tours are perfect for families, novice riders, and older cyclists, or those who just want to have a lazy day exploring the countryside by bicycle. Try a flat, scenic trail with the kids or combine several tours to make up a multi-day trip. Ride right from your front door or take a bus, train, ferry, or car to the starting point. Whatever your cycling interest, Easy Cycling around Vancouver is just the ticket.

Jean Cousins is the author of Easy Cycling around Vancouver and Nature Walks around Vancouver. She lives in in Surrey, BC.
