In June, the city of Vancouver hosted the Velo-City Global 2012 Conference, where international cycling planners, professionals and advocates convened.
Streetfilms partnered with the city to produce this video about Vancouver's investment in bicycling. Easy and convenient transportation is key to their status as one of the world's most livable and sustainable cities. In 2010 they introduced their downtown separated bike lanes. And since, cycling has become the fastest growing mode of transportation in Vancouver.
The city's investment in bike infrastructure is paying off and city leaders continue to set their goals high. The city's Cycling Vision includes developing new bicycle and greenway networks, building ample bicycle parking, making access to transit easier, prioritizing cycling education and promotion, and creating a friendlier pedestrian environment with more livable neighborhoods.
The end result is a city where cycling is safe, convenient, comfortable, and fun for people of all ages and abilities.
