Free hard copies of maps can be picked up at four locations
VANCOUVER — Residents and visitors can learn the best ways to get around Vancouver and Clark County by bicycle with the recently updated version of the City of Vancouver’s “Cycling Vancouver & Clark County” map.
Free hard copies of the maps can be picked up at:
- Vancouver City Hall (415 W. Sixth St.), available at the kiosk or at the front desk in the lobby
- Clark County Public Service Center (1300 Franklin St.), available at the front desk in the lobby
- Bike Clark County’s community bike shop (1604 Main St.), bikeclarkcounty.org.
- Rollin Right Repairs (11015 N.E. Burton Rd.), rollinrightrepairs.com
An interactive online version of the bike map is also available on Clark County’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) website at https://bit.ly/clarkcountybikeapp. With the online version, bike route conditions can be accessed by either clicking on the individual routes on the map or opening the legend in the top, right-hand corner of the screen.
The map uses a color-coded legend to show paved multi-use paths, and which streets have striped bike lanes or are shared roadways. It also shows areas where new bike routes are planned, where connections are difficult or caution should be used, and where bicycles are not allowed.
The printed map also includes information about sharing the road, explains how loop detectors in the pavement at traffic signals work with bikes, and provides general tips on riding safely.
