I Want to Ride My Bicycle…
Surrey on two wheels
Surrey’s called the City of Parks for a reason. Wherever you find yourself in the region, there’s no shortage of nature trails and natural greenery – and there’s no better way of experiencing them than by bicycle!
The City of Surrey’s continuing dedication to the creation of a pedestrian and bike-friendly community is evident in their Walking Plan and Cycling Plan – twin schemes aimed to increase the physical activity among visitors and residents by incorporating routes and trails into the municipal infrastructure. It’s a concept that lends itself naturally to the geography – after all, eighty-two percent of Surrey is within five kilometers of a town centre. Now if that doesn’t get the wheels turning…
Surrey’s bike trails range from short and leisurely to long and challenging, so whether you’re out for a casual spin or bent on a serious trek, there’s a route to suit your fancy. Here’s a quick taste of the trails…
