Tour meeting location: Spokes Bicycle Rentals: 1798 West Georgia St., (at Denman St.)
If you’re not from Vancouver, we highly suggest walking to Spokes from your hotel or taking a cab, as parking is between $9 – $13 per day. You can walk to Spokes from most downtown hotels in 30min or less, or a 5 min cab ride.
If you are driving:
Vancouver is a very bike friendly city, but driving can be frustrating for those not familiar wit the city due to one way streets and no left turns on many streets in Downtown and the West End.
Note that if you are traveling West on West Georgia St., you can’t turn left on to Denman. If you come down West Georgia, you might end up going into Stanley Park and get lost or go over the Lions Gate Bridge! Either come down Alberni St. towards the shop, or turn right on to Denman and park in the outdoor lot on your left. Plan how you will drive to the shop before you come by asking hotel staff or local friends. Here is a map showing parking: PARKING
