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 way to see and learn about Vancouver!”
My husband and I took the bike tour with Dan on our first day in Vancouver. It was the best part of our trip. What a perfect way to see the city and learn about the culture, history and social awareness. Dan was very knowledgeable and he talked the perfect amount. Also, I am not the worlds best biker and the level of difficulty was not bad at all. Its a very healthy, fun and entertaining way to view Vancouver. I highly recommend it to all levels of bikers! – Kkunkel44, Pheonix AZ, Nov. 2012
