The Cassiar Bikeway is 1.7km long and connects the Adanac Bikeway and the Second Narrows Bridge. Built in 1993, it starts at the corner of Adanac St. and Cassiar St. and follows Cassiar St. north. It runs parallel to the Cassiar Connector and leads onto the sidewalk of the bridge, thereby allowing cyclists to cross Burrard Inlet to North Vancouver.
It’s A Quick Jaunt
Estimated travel time from the bridge to the other end of the bikeway is six minutes. It’s an unbroken bike route from Downtown Vancouver onto the Second Narrows Bridge across the Burrard Inlet. This provides a safe and easy way to get access to the North Shore. From the Bridge all the way to Downtown Vancouver is 7.2 km. Not too far of a distance to get to work, if you’re biking.
A Fun Way To Get To Work
Vancouver offers it’s visitors and its inhabitants some of the most lovely views in Canada and paths like the Cassiar Bikeway allow daily commuters and tourists the opportunity to safely get around the City without having to start up the engine. Biking to work is a fun and active alternative to sitting in traffic. Bikers from Burnaby in the east using the Francis/Union bike route can get straight on to the bridge via the Adanac bikeway, and then the Cassiar link.
Take Note: This bikeway starts at the corner of Adanac Street and Cassiar Street and heads north.
