As you enter Stanley Park, you can make an optional stop at the Vancouver Aquarium. Continue along the seawall to the Totem Poles to learn about indigenous art.

Iconic Stanley Park Sights

Check out the Brockton Point Lighthouse, Girl in the Wetsuit, and Slhx̱í7lsh Rock.


Prospect Point Views

Stanley Park’s highest viewpoint has epic views of the Lion’s Gate Bridge, West Vancouver, the Burrard Inlet, and mountains. 

Self-Guided Bike Tour Itinerary

This is a great ride for anyone wanting to explore what Stanley Park has to offer! Stop by the shop to grab a bike rental, then head north towards Burrard Landing. Enjoy waterfront views of mountains and marinas as you pedal along the seawall on the way to the park. There are several eateries along the way if you wish to pick up a picnic to eat on the beach later.

As you reach the park, you can make an optional detour up Avison Way to the Vancouver Aquarium. Next stop are the Totem Poles, where you can take in some Indigenous art and learn about Vancouver’s local Indigenous Peoples; the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Follow the seawall to Brockton Point Lighthouse and snap a few photos. Enjoy the amazing views as you ride past the Girl in a Wetsuit on your way to Prospect Point. You can choose to stay on the seawall for inlet views and a more relaxed ride, or decide to take the Stanley Park Drive route through the park to the lookout, which has a steep but short incline. The seawall route will take you past Slhx̱í7lsh Rock and Third Beach, while the in-park route will take you through the wooded areas and by the Hollow Tree.

Both routes will land you at Second Beach and up Beach Avenue where you can stop at beloved bronze sculptures A-maze-ing Laughter to snap a few photos. Ride on Beach Avenue past English Bay,  the Inukshuk, and Sunset Beach before turning left on Hornby Street to get back to the shop.

Important Information:

The Stanley Park bike path is one-way only, counterclockwise. Before you ride, make sure to check out attraction hours and admission rates. 

The ride starts from our shop then north and along the waterfront, then followed in a counterclockwise direction.
