10th Avenue Bike Route
Here is a link in case you would like to provide input into the 10th Avenue bikeway that runs right past Tennyson. http://vancouver.ca/streets-transportation/10th-avenue-corridor-project.aspx
Here is some more information from the city:
A top priority of Transportation 2040 is to upgrade the 10th Avenue Corridor to be more safe, convenient, comfortable, and fun for people of all ages and abilities to walk and cycle.
The 10th Avenue local-street bikeway runs from Victoria Drive to Trafalgar Street, linking many key destinations like Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) and Commercial Drive, plus several busy north-south cycling routes.
Over 500,000 people cycle on 10th Avenue every year, making it one of the busiest east-west bikeways in the city.

The 10th avenue bike lane absolutely needs separate lanes in front of VGH and the Cancer agency. Separated bike lanes along 10th avenue Between trafalgar and Arbutus would be an important addition because children bike this route to get to and from the Kits community centre/Kits high school and there is a lot of vehicle traffic going fast along this road or trying to park. The area in front of St.John's private school in particular is treacherous for anyone around pickup/drop off times with a steady stream of distracted SUV drivers inching towards the drop zone along 10th.
