At Cambie and Marine in Vancouver, a whole new ‘hood is rising around the Canada Line station. It includes separated bike lanes from Kent Street to eventually hook up with the Ontario bike way. With a little creativity and a small detour, you can get quite safely from the Canada Line bridge bike lane though Cambie & Marine all the way to the downtown bike lane network via Ontario Street. With good separation where traffic is thickest, as it is here.

And yes, that’s Douglas Coupland’s Golden Tree.
