The city of Vancouver is incredibly cycle-friendly and one of the best ways to explore it is on two wheels. Whether one is looking to experience the various neighbourhoods or get out on some local trails in the urban oasis that is Stanley Park, the 440 lane-kilometres of dedicated bike routes allow for safe and easy urban riding. There’s no shortage of options when it comes to cycling Vancouver. The city is surrounded by cycle routes from the famous seawall around Stanley Park and False Creek to urban lanes through the downtown core, Yaletown, the West End, Coal Harbour, and our seaside routes to many urban beaches. Slowing down and experiencing Vancouver this way will provide a unique viewpoint to our green city.
Cycle City Rentals and Tours offers tours led by story-teller guides that provide a local’s insight or self-guided maps with insider tips are available for those who prefer exploring on their own. The two downtown locations have a stellar line of bikes and accessories.
Spokes Bicycle Rentals is conveniently located at the entrance to Vancouver’s ‘crown jewel’, Stanley Park. Pick up a cruiser, hybrid or the newest mountain bike with helmet and lock and head off to explore the park and the city.
