‘No-cycling’ signs have been posted on the shoulders of the new four-laned road between 210th and 216th streets in Maple Ridge.

Of course you can cycle on the road, says city

Wider road will make easier for everyone to move east and west

No-cycling signs that told cyclists not to pedal on the shoulders of the new, widened 128th Avenue angered commuting cyclists earlier this week.

But it was all a mistake, said the City of Maple Ridge.

The signs were posted in error, says municipal engineer Dave Pollock.

“They’ve been taken down,” said Pollock.

“They were taken down yesterday.”

A multi-use pathway on the north side of the road is part of the project that will see widening of the road from 210th to 224th Streets by next year. People are encouraged to use that separated pathway for cycling and walking.

But cyclists can still use the road shoulders as well. However, the shoulders in some areas are not 1.5 metres wide so don’t qualify as bike lanes.
