Our most popular tour because it highlights the best of Vancouver food, history, ecology and culture. Highlights include seawall and rainforest touring in Stanley Park, lunch (on your own) at Granville Island Public Market, Olympic Village and historic Chinatown and Gastown.
This tour encompasses Vancouver and highlights the very best natural and urban biking that the city has to offer and 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, exploring the waterfront on the Seawall as well as exploring little-known forest trails where we see old growth trees, tons of wildlife and unique rainforest plants. We then pass by English Bay, the hottest beach in the city and hop a small ferry over False Creek to discover amazing food and art at Granville Island Public Market. We take a 45 min break to find lunch at the Market (on your own).
Next, we cruise the seawall along the South side of False Creek enjoying beautiful views of Vancouver’s modern architecture framed by the North Shore Mountains. We get up-close with the modern Olympic Village complex and Science World, learning about Expo ’86 and the 2010 Winter Olympics as well as Vancouver’s future as it attempts to become the “greenest city in the world!”
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 cut back through downtown on separated bike lanes, passing bustling Robson Square, the Art Gallery and Law Courts and return our bikes to the shop. Time for a cold drink!
Easy for beginner riders of basic fitness. Frequent stops, photo ops, flat trails make this an enjoyable ride and our most popular tour!
