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.

Nick was our guide & he was very knowledgeable about Vancouver & had a wealth of local stories to tie with every stop on our Grand Tour. The pace of the cycling was perfect for a moderate bike rider & there were plenty of stops along the way.

Nic was awesome! His commanding knowledge of the city was quite impressive. He made us feel extremely comfortable and by the end, felt more like a friend than a tour guide. The bikes were very well maintained and perfect for our journey. The ride was easy enough for a novice but still fun for a highly experienced rider. The stops and the stories were second to none and it was the highlight of our trip. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who likes bicycling and wants to see Vancouver in a different way.
