Vancouver's most joyful bike trail makes commuting fun

There's a common misconception in some circles that bicycling is merely for recreation, as opposed to a legitimate transportation mode. Of course that's wrong, cycling is often the most convenient way to get from point A to point B in a city. But why can't transportation facilities be fun too?

According to Vancouver, they can.

Vancouver's North Shore, of course, has some of the best mountain biking in the world, as well.

A cross between a bike path and a miniature golf course? Sweet.
