Mayor Gregor Robertson and Vision Vancouver are rallying the troops for Monday, July 13th at 8:15am. In anticipation of pissing off the FEW regular cyclists that are REALLY commuting to work, Vision Vancouver has chosen to do the reverse commute in the morning, traveling from downtown TO Kitsilano where they will meet up for a coffee at Bean Around the World on Cornwall.
Our goal is to increase safety and capacity for cyclists and pedestrians crossing the bridge while shifting towards increased use of sustainable modes of transportation across the city.
A dedicated bike lane and improved cycling infrastructure around the bridge will ensure that the increased flow of cyclists and pedestrians is accommodated, making for a safer and a more comfortable commute.
Join your Vision Vancouver councilors, school trustees, park commissioners and supporters for a group cycle over the bridge on Monday, July 13, at 8:15 AM. We will be meeting at the north side of the Burrard Bridge (look for a group of cyclists on the northeast corner of Burrard and Pacific), cycling over the bridge and then gather for a tea or coffee at Bean Around the World (1945 Cornwall Street).
Another smart move by Robertson & team.
