Welcome to HUB Langley
We've got some great cycling destinations in Langley and we're really excited about working with our local councils, engineering and planning departments, and cyclists just like you.
We'll be working to build better and safer infrastructure and to provide education to cyclists of all ages in Langley.
Our committee officially became a part of HUB in May of 2015 and in those past six months we have made substantial progress in expanding our network of relationships with people in our community who influence the cycling community.
We've now got nearly 180 email HUB Langley supporters on our email list and the support we've received from the community so far has been extremely encouraging. Sign up for our mail list to be kept up to date with new happenings.
Working with Langley Schools
After a successful HUB Learn2Ride bicycle training program for grades 3 to 5 at West Langley Elementary School in Walnut Grove, we are further collaborating with the school staff, the local Parent Advisory Council, and the Township of Langley to improve infrastructure and safety in the school catchment area and to increase the numbers of students riding bikes over the next year. We'll keep you posted as to our progress.
Ungapping the Map!
Over the past months the HUB Langley Committee has been looking at several prospective bike routes throughout the City of Langley and the Township of Langley and have determined the major UnGapTheMap segments that will tie the Metro Vancouver area together. Focusing on transportation routes we have identified the following routes as essential to the transportation cycling network:
Golden Ears Bridge to South Langley: This is an extremely important 17 kilometre corridor that will effectively provide access from the Golden Ears bridge, through Walnut Grove, Willoughby, Langley City, Brookswood and beyond to south Langley. From Golden Ears bridge, the route is along 96th Avenue to 208th, then south through Walnut Grove, over Hwy 1 to Willoughby continuing on 208th to Langley City where the route follows the Willoughby Connector to 204th Avenue and over the Langley Bypass overpass and on to 203rd in Langley City and then continues south to Grade Crescent where the route winds through a few residential streets and across the BC Hydro right of way before continuing on 204th to 36th Avenue at Noel Booth Park.
96th Avenue: Another important route that connects travelers from the Surrey border and the Golden Ears bridge to Langley and Fort Langley.
Fraser Highway: There is currently a significant gap along the Fraser Hwy through most of Langley City. We have identified this route as an extremely high priority and are working to find solutions that will work for all modes of transportation.
Glover Road: An important route connecting the City of Langley to Fort Langley. This route also provides access to two post secondary institutions; Trinity Western University in Langley Township and Kwantlen Polytechnic University in the City of Langley. The route is already popular with sport riders and commuter cyclists riding from Langley City to Fort Langley.
Cloverdale to Langley City: We've been working with the HUB Surrey Committee to define a route that will connect the two city centres without the need to climb the steep hill between the two. The proposed route follows a primarily flat route through some neighbourhood roads, past Brydon Lagoon and winds its way along 55th, 54th, and 53rd Avenues to the intersection of Fraser Hwy at 180th Street. From there it meanders through quiet residential roads to the downtown core of Cloverdale. The route makes for an enjoyable afternoon ride.
We'd like to hear what you have to say about these routes or anything related to cycling in Langley.
