The City of Vernon is distributing community-identified best routes maps for cycling.

Officials say the map is part of the city’s commitment to make cycling easier for residents and visitors.

“City staff consulted with the public and key stakeholders during 15 community input sessions in 2013 and 2014 to develop best route mapping for cycling and walking,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, communications co-ordinator.

“A best-routes walking map is also planned.”

Free copies of the cycling map are located at Vernon city hall and the community services building, the Vernon library, the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Vernon Association, Skyride and Sun Country Cycle shops, and several local cafes.

The maps can also be viewed at www.vernon.ca/vernonmoves.
