Description:
This tour encompasses Vancouver and highlights the very best sights, attractions, and biking that the city has to offer!  It is a great way to start your visit to the city.

We ride at a leisurely pace to soak up the vibrant culture and beautiful sights that make Vancouver a world-class city.  We start with a tour of world famous Stanley Park and pass by the English Bay, the hottest beach in the city.  We hop a ferry over False Creek to discover amazing food and art at Granville Island. We take a 1 hour break to find lunch at the Market (on your own).

Next, we ride the seawall along the South side of False Creek enjoying beautiful views of Vancouver’s modern architecture framed by the North Shore Mountains.  We  pass the Olympic Village complex and Science World, learning about Expo ’86 and the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Finally, we go back in time to check out Vancouver’s vibrant Chinatown including a visit to Dr. Sun Yat Sen Chinese Park and history-rich Gastown, learning about the city’s humble beginnings as a logging outpost and Gassy Jack’s pub.

We once again meet up with the Seawall and make our way back to the bike rental shop through beautiful coal harbour along the waterfont checking out the marinas and sea planes taking off.

Easy for beginner riders of basic fitness.  Frequent stops, photo ops, flat trails make this an enjoyable ride and our most popular tour!

“Best day in Vancouver ever”

First trip to Vancouver I showed myself and my wife around Stanley Park and the city.   It was OK.  Today my wife booked a tour with CCT.  It was awesome.  Josh was our guide and we had the best 5 hour history lesson/ tour ever.  He knows all about the history of Vancouver.  You might think that is a long time to spend on a tour. It flew by.  Finished at the best donut shop in the city.  The weather was perfect but I am not sure he did that.  This is a must do if you visit Vancouver     (April 2014)

 

“Best activity in Vancouver”

In five hours you see more, learn more, experience more of this fabulous city than I ever thought possible. Great guides who were safety conscience and very knowledgeable of the history and current trends / politics of Vancouver. Flat terrain surrounded by beauty and diversity. Anyone who can ride a bike can manage this ride. This is by far the best city tour I have ever taken. Definitely worth the time and money. Compared to a 30 minute float plane arial tour of Vancouver this bike trip is way more interesting, fun and satisfying.     (April 2014)
