Summary

Begin your morning or afternoon biking adventure in downtown Vancouver at the bike rental shop, where you meet your friendly guide. After a quick safety briefing and a bike and helmet fitting, set off on an invigorating nature ride through Stanley Park, a 1,000-acre (405-hectare) city oasis. This park trail and bike-lane circuit is perfect for any level of rider. Enjoy picturesque urban and pastoral views as your guide takes you into Stanley Park and along the perimeter seawall over the course of the tour. Bounded by water on three sides, Stanley Park offers great views of Burrard Inlet, the North Shore Mountains, and the Vancouver skyline. As you ride, stop to snap photos and hear fascinating stories about Vancouver’s colorful history as a logging town. Catch chance sightings of resident herons, river otters and bald eagles—maybe even spot one of the 15 bald eagle nests in the park. Learn about the lagoon’s transformation from a tidal flat to a bio-filtration marsh, and pedal on to Brockton Point to view the amazing First Nations totems poles—a must-do for all native history enthusiasts. Afterwards, cycle through the park’s wooded trails to explore a temperate rain forest, and to view Beaver Lake and the park’s famous 700-year-old cedar tree. Your final stop is Third Beach, a secluded city retreat on Ferguson Point. Enjoy some quiet time on the beach before heading back to town. Your ride ends back at the bike rental shop.
