This activity will end right where it started.
Begin your bike tour in central Vancouver, where you meet your guide in the morning. After a quick safety briefing and a bike and helmet fitting, set off on an exciting city ride. Along the way, stop for great photo ops, get insider tips and learn fascinating anecdotes about Vancouver’s colorful history from your savvy guide.

Head to Stanley Park with your small group and wind through the remarkable 1,000-acre (405-hectare) green space, a wonderland of 500,000 cedar, fir, and hemlock trees. Enjoy splendid vistas of the city skyline, the North Shore Mountains and Mount Baker (on a clear day), and marvel at First Nation totem poles in Brockton Point. Learn about the native people that once inhabited the area, pedal into the rain forest and past Beaver Lake, and spot local wildlife like river otters, herons, and bald eagles. 

Next, wheel onto the ferry for a quick ride to Granville Island. Here, enjoy free time to stroll explore the Public Market—bursting with colorful produce and artisan goods—and grab lunch (own expense). Then head along False Creek, through Olympic Village to Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, dubbed the 'world’s top city garden' by National Geographic.

Your half-day tour concludes with a trip through ambient Gastown, the city’s historic logging outpost turned chic shopping and entertainment district. Coast past fine restaurants and boutiques and on to Coal Harbour to watch seaplanes skirt along the Burrard Inlet waterfront. Arrive back at the bike rental shop in downtown by mid-afternoon.

Beautiful Day with Amazing People

This is one of the activities that was top on our list while in Vancouver and we were NOT disappointed. Greg made the entire trip fun and informative, and we were lucky enough to have Mike & Marlow assist with the tour. They all made sure everyone on the tour was comfortable and getting exactly what they wanted out of the experience. It was the perfect activity to do on our first day as we covered a LOT of ground and were able to plan the rest of our trip based on the places we visited and what we learned from Greg and the team. Thank you so much for making our first day in Vancouver so enjoyable and informative (and most of all thank you for the gorgeous weather we had!!!!)

Vancouver Bike Tour Will NOT Disappoint!

Our Vancouver City Bike Tour was outstanding! Our tour guide Paulo was delightful and full of knowledge about the city, it’s history and current events. He took us through the city, the woods, on a ferry and through a variety of neighborhoods while pointing out sights of interest and recommendations for visiting on our own. Paulo had a fabulous recommendation for dinner and we were not disappointed! I highly recommend Paulo from Cycle City as your Vancouver Bike Tour guide.

This tour was so much fun. I had not ridden a bike in a while so I was a little nervous but I needn't have worried. The pace was easy to keep up with and the route felt very safe. Bob our guide was fantastic- very knowledgeable and friendly and told us not only about Vancouver's history but also about current events and the views of Vancouverites. This is a great and interesting way to see the city, I would definitely recommend!
