The City of Coquitlam is committed to sustainable modes of transportation. Several cycling routes have been built including Alderson Avenue, Rochester Avenue, Westview-Whiting, Guildford Way, and Chilko Drive. Coquitlam's Bike Route Information Guide is available below. Free printed copies are available at City facilities.
Tri-Cities Bike Map
A regional cycling user map is available from TransLink. Did you know that TransLink’s buses and Skytrain accept bicycles? Therefore, even if you work a long way from home, you have the option of completing a portion of your trip by bicycle.
New cycling routes are provided in accordance with our Strategic Transportation Plan. Routes are implemented pending Council's approval of the annual capital budget.
The latest research shows that over 40% of potential cyclists are concerned about riding in traffic. In order to address this concern and attract more riders, the City plans to diversify the types of new facilities by including more routes separated from traffic.
Cycling support facilities at the end of your trip are an important incentive such as: bike racks, secure bike storage rooms, change rooms and showers. For new developments, particularly commercial and mixed use types, City staff work with developers to implement support facilities.
Therefore, for some shorter, utilitarian trips (such as running errands or light shopping) of under 5km, the bicycle is a viable option, saving you parking costs, dealing with road congestion and other driver frustrations. Riding helps to reduce emissions, improves your health and connects you to your community and surroundings.
We hope you try our routes and look forward to your feedback.
