Vancouver, BC: Walking Across the Burrard Bridge

One of my favorite parts of Vancouver, BC are all the bridges connecting parts of the city. The first bridge I walked across was the Burrard Bridge, just a little over a mile long.

As you can see from the signs, bicyclists have their own lane for traveling across the bridge. In fact it’s like this all over Vancouver, many people riding their bikes or walking, hardly any traffic from cars at least while I was visiting.

I love the chaotic character of this street sign.Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada

I’m so used to seeing speed limit signs in MPH in the U.S. but in Canada they use KM/H instead as part of the metric system. 50 KM/H converts to about 31 MPH. Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada

Vancouver’s buildings truly are different from any other cities I’ve visited before but that’s part of what it makes it memorable for me. Every city has it’s own characteristics, architecture is one of them.Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada

Even bicyclists have their own speed limit on the bridge, 15 KM/H or about 9 MPH.Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada Burrard Bridge Vancouver British Columbia Canada
