Vancouver “Seacycles” — Burrard Bridge to Point Grey Road

A great video that highlights the success one of Vancouver’s most recent—and controversial—urban interventions: the Seaside Greenway and bike route along Cornwall and Point Great Road.

By Kathleen Corey and Brian Gould

False Creek’s oldest bridge, Seaforth’s spreading trees. Joined by paths like those between Jericho and Kits Beach. Pocket parks sewn into a ribbon – Tatlow stitched to Volunteer. Ride a tandem by the seashore, run your fingers ‘long the seam.

A dozen cars for every bicycle? A dozen bikes for every car. What was louder than the waves is but an eddy in the wind. Gentle ripples lapping at the wall, trickles open up a crack. The waves were out there waiting, and now they’re rushing through. As the ships sail Burrard Inlet, the seacycles ply Point Grey.
