The City of Vancouver has a vision to make cycling safe, convenient, comfortable and fun for all ages and abilities (AAA), including families with children, seniors, and new riders. An inviting and connected network of low stress “AAA” routes will provide a wide spectrum of the population the option to cycle for most short trips.
 
This guideline provides 10 “rules of thumb” to consider when designing or designating a route “AAA”. It is intended as a living document that will be updated and supplemented periodically as we learn from local projects, research, and other leading cities.
