Cycling to Downtown Vancouver using protected bike lanes
I drove the car with bicycle rack installed down to the area under Cambie St bridge and park. The route starts from under the Cambie St Bridge, and around the False Creek Seawall, then up along the side streets towards Burrard Bridge. Then over the Burrard Bridge onto Hornby protected bike lanes, to Seymour Street bike lanes, which is the 1st protected bike lane installed in the city. Then the route goes through Beatty Street and back onto Cambie St Bridge and return to the car. The entire trip is about 45 mins, and logged about 8.5km.
The route passes through Granville Island, and one can take on the view and scenary along the Burrard Bridge and Cambie St Bridge, and especially along the False Creek seawall.
