Here’s a photo I took of the separated bike lane on Vancouver’s Burrard Bridge. Since it was installed a couple of years ago it’s become an key link in a continuous network of protected bike lanes through downtown and connecting the east and west sides of the city. And, as is expected with the addition of safer infrastructure, more folks are now getting around by bike!
You can check out more of my photos over at Flickr.

    EthicalOil.org argues Canadian oil tar sands are the better choice over Saudi Arabian oil. The reason? Canada has better human rights and quality of life.
