Vernon residents consistently express a desire to ride bicycles more often. Residents have shown a growing interest in the benefits cycling can provide to their lifestyles. These benefits can be wide-ranging:

  • Cycling generates no greenhouse gas emissions, improving individual and community footprints.
  • Cycling is a cost effective way for commuting to and from work and can significantly lower your gas budget.
  • With the constant improvement of bike path and road infrastructure, cycling is becoming a more efficient use of public road space.
  • Cycling provides a low impact form of exercise and can increase heart rate and muscle production with minimal strain on joints.
  • Including cycling into your lifestyle mitigates stress and adds fun.

However, many residents say they would cycle more if they felt safer, and frequently inquire about safety practices. For these reasons, The City of Vernon is committed to making cycling easier for residents and visitors by providing an extensive network of cycling routes around the city, and promoting safe and healthy travel. The City of Vernon makes cycling a high priority in its transportation plans and provides community bike initiatives and safety programs.

Go By Bike Week

The City of Vernon  ​is gearing up for Go By Bike Week, our annual community-wide celebration of all things bicycle. Every year, Vernon residents trade in their cars for two wheels and get around by bike for a week for a chance to win great prizes. 

Many people own bicycles and haven't considered using them for daily transportation. Our goal is to motivate people of all ages to try cycling to work, to school, to go shopping, or out for dinner, perhaps for the first time… and maybe fall in love with the freedom that cycling provides! This helps shift behaviour towards healthy, sustainable transportation.
