Data consisted of:

          - Current literature to identify cycling hazards as well as to review a variety of mitigation methods

          - Information on hazards and dangerous sections, acquired through consultation with local cyclists,             stakeholders, and various groups (e.g. North Shore Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition [NSVACC])

          - Specific costs and regulations collected through discussion with various policy-makers (e.g. Ministry of             Transportation and Infrastructure)


The study was carried out as follows:

          - Knowledge acquired from literature and consultation was used as a preliminary survey of the study region to             reduce the possibility of gross errors

          - Ground-truthing was conducted to analyze cycling safety on the route; three visits total were conducted:

                    - Visit 1: documentation of basic information, such as inconsistencies in safety measures

                    - Visit 2: thorough assessment that collected data for analysis, including the collection of measurements,                       photographs, and detailed notes of safety hazards

                    - Visit 3: conducted via bicycle to assess the route through the perspective of cyclists

          - All collected data was then compiled into a single database to be assessed against cycling safety literature and             case-studies

  The Sea to Sky Highway cycling safety   project was undertaken by five Geography   undergraduates at Simon Fraser University   enrolled in Geography 455
