Cycling stats for Vancouver

The City of Vancouver has some interesting stats about cycling in the city.

Some examples:

  • In some neighbourhoods such as Kitsilano and Grandview-Woodlands, more than 10 percent of work trips are made by bicycle (2006 Statistics Canada Census).
  • 15.9 percent of residents in Vancouver cycle or walk to work (2006 Statistics Canada Census).
  • 41.4 percent in the Downtown and West End cycle or walk to work (2006 Statistics Canada Census).
  • Almost half of all Vancouver residents commute less than five km to work and more than 80 percent commute less than 10 km – these relatively short distances are ideal for cycling.
