The B.C. government will spend more than $2 million to install mirrors on bicycles, helmets and bike tires in a bid to encourage cyclists to ride more and keep their distance from other road users.
B.F. Hockey’s BC Cycling Coalition is also offering a $1,000 scholarship for students to take a two-week bike ride with the hope of landing a job.
The money is being used to build bike racks, equipment and more in order to attract cyclists to the B.N.C.’s capital, Richmond.
The Bicycling Coalition says it is committed to expanding cycling opportunities to B.L.C., which has a population of about 60,000 people.
Bicyclists have become an increasingly popular mode of transportation in B.K.C.; in 2016, nearly 30,000 bikers travelled alone.
