What you'll do

This 5-hour guided tour encompasses Downtown Vancouver and highlights the very best sights, attractions, and biking that the city has to offer! With plenty of stops for stories, questions and photos, you'll be a local-expert by the end of your day.

Beginning at our bike shop in the heart of Downtown, we'll get fitted for bikes then join the protected bikeway right outside. We'll head to world-famous Stanley Park and ride through the rainforest trails past old-growth trees, making stops at Lost Lagoon, the Totem Poles and Beaver Lake. We'll carry on past some of the hottest beaches in the city, then hop over to Granville Island, known for its arts & culture scene as well as its great food and shopping. Enjoy a break for lunch at the Public Market, with dozens of vendors to choose from.

Next we'll carry on along the seawall to Olympic Village, taking in the views of Vancouver's modern architecture, before heading into the historic districts of Chinatown and Gastown. Finally we'll cruise back to the shop through Coal Harbour.

Come along for expert storytelling and to learn about the history, ecology, geography, and culture of the region at a variety of scenic stops throughout the city. Leave with great local recommendations for restaurants and activities for the rest of your trip.

Bob was a great guide and story teller! We enjoyed the tour, which was perfectly balanced between cycling, sightseeing and story telling. Thanks again!

We did the tour with Greg, which is a great guide. The route is good, well balanced with stops vs. bike riding, lots of interesting stories. The bikes were of very good quality as well. Did several bike-tours around the world, this one definitely is in our top 3. All in all a great activity. Highly recommended to do on the first day of a stay in Vancouver!

Our tour guide, Paulo, did an excellent job telling us the history of Vancouver and showing us around the city! I appreciated the overview of the opportunities and struggles facing Vancouver as it continues to grow and develop. Would highly recommend for anyone seeking to explore the city by bike (bike infrastructure is excellent in Vancouver) in both rain or shine!
