Everything in life can be made more fun and that is exactly the thinking behind the Whoopdeedoo Vancouver project. Targeting cycling specifically, it introduces subtle sloping ramps on pre-existing bike paths in the Canadian city. Since there is a large cycling community in Vancouver, it shakes things up in a fun and unexpected ways.

The Whoopdeedoo Vancouver project was conceived and created by Greg Papove for Bike to Work Week. While the design is bright and friendly to better catch the attention of cyclists and pedestrians, the Whoopdeedoo Vancouver ramps are also accompanied by posters and safety signage that reads, "Have fun at your own risk." They were designed by Claire Balderston. Flags are also involved. Stats for Playful Bike Ramp Projects Trending: Older & Mild
