Tour Itinerary

This tour encompasses Downtown 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 and discover your surroundings.

We begin with a tour of world-famous Stanley Park, riding trails through old-growth forest and taking in the spectacular sights of the seawall. After riding through English Bay past some of the hottest beaches in the city, we hop a ferry over False Creek to Granville Island, known city-wide for its arts and culture scene as well as its great food and shopping. Guests enjoy a break from riding to find lunch at the Public Market, with dozens of vendors to choose from.

Next we follow the seawall along the south side of False Creek, taking in 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 the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden. Nearby is historic Gastown, Vancouver’s first downtown core, where we’ll learn about Gassy Jack’s first pub as well as the city’s humble beginnings as a logging outpost.

We once again join the seawall and make our way towards home through beautiful Coal Harbour, riding along the waterfront and checking out the marinas and the seaplane port.

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

TOUR ITINERARY

Begin your tour amid the glistening highrises of Downtown Vancouver where, not so long ago, horses once trod and saloons plied the locals up and down the water’s edge. Learn about historic Gastown and Vancouver’s first tavern ever built, the Globe Saloon. Mere blocks away stands the Settlement Building, a heritage workspace now turned brewery, winery and restaurant. Enjoy a delectable brunch from Belgard Kitchen as we sample our first three beers from Postmark Brewing.

We ride on through Strathcona, the oldest residential neighbourhood in Vancouver, where the booming craft beer scene is revitalizing its vintage industrial spaces. Hometown heroes Bomber Brewing serve up our next samples; we’ll learn about bike infrastructure, beer packaging, and old fashioned neighbourhood scandals, before riding south towards Mount Pleasant.

Our third and final stop finds us in the Brewery Creek district: birthplace of Vancouver brewing and the historic epicenter of local beer making a century ago. Now operating out of an original 100-year-old heritage brewery is Main Street Brewing Co., where we’ll enjoy our final tasters before returning downtown.

ADDITIONAL INFO

At each of our three stops guests can enjoy three 3oz samples of beer — for a total of 9 samples — as well as tour the facilities to learn how the beer is made and packaged. No additional consumption of alcohol is permitted during the tour, however growler fills and packaged beer may be purchased for later enjoyment. We’ll gladly carry your purchases back to the shop for you. This tour is meant to be fun and educational — it is not a pub crawl!

 

Brunch is included at our first stop to compliment the beers and demonstrate the principles of beer pairing. Please inform your guide of any food restrictions or requirements before departure.

Safe cycling is our number-one priority. If a guest is unable to safely continue on the tour, alternative transportation will be arranged.
