Vickey Brown - Cumberland Council

Thanks for the opportunity. I’ve had the opportunity to work with the farm cycle tour via the Farmers’ market, and appreciate your work with our schools to provide bike safety education.

I was also an avid cycling commuter in Vancouver so I very much appreciate the work you are doing here in the Valley! My answer is below in blue.

Thanks again for all the work you do!


Cumberland is obviously very bike friendly, but our entrance/exit roads have been challenging for cyclists.

This past year we were able to increase the width of the Cumberland road to increase the safety and comfortability for both walkers and cyclists.

I would advocate for this on the Royston Rd entrance as well.

I would also look into measures (within the development bylaws) we could put in place for new developments to ensure that there is room for bikes to travel those roads as well.

I would also like to see a bike lane from the Village all the way out to Comox Lake.

In general, I am very much in favour of getting people out of their vehicles and onto the streets in whatever form that takes. I think it makes for community building, healthier people and more vibrant streets.

I would do whatever I can to promote/support bike safety education for kids in partnership with our SD71, and infrastructure to integrate cyclists into our transportation system and routes.
