Independent Bike Tour of Vancouver

Your day begins at the local shop in downtown, where an expert guide will set you up with rentals and a custom map of Vancouver that will give suggested routes and highlights for you to explore at your leisure. Visit the hip, trendy boutiques of historical Gaston. Look for steamed buns in a reborn Chinatown. Drink in the cafe culture of Main Street. Soak up the sun on the expansive beaches of Kitsalano and English Bay. Enjoy all the treats of the Granville Island markets. Ride the easy trails under the old-growth cedars and dense, green rain forest of Stanley Park. Every diverse corner and cultural gem of Vancouver is easily within reach when using a uniquely designed, independent bike tour map and the latest model city bikes. This city has incomparable views of the surrounding mountains and gleaming skylines at every turn. From the world-famous seawall cycling path, access diverse attractions such as Science World, Stanley Park, English Bay, the Olympic Village, Granville Island, Vancouver Museum, Maritime Museum, and Jericho Beach. If looking to ascend the Spanish Banks, the Museum of Anthropology, Beatty Biodiversity Museum, and Nitobe Japanese Garden, they are just beyond the end of the seawall on the campus of the University of British Columbia (UBC).The historical Gastown, Railtown, and Main Street neighborhoods have rapidly developed into the city's youngest and trendiest areas. From world-class clothing and home goods designers to simple cafes, experimental gastropubs, donuteries, and even organic soft-serve ice cream outlets, spend an entire day rolling through these neighborhoods alone. Stanley Park is enjoyed in many different ways by visitors. With a whole day to explore, consider taking two trips around the park — one on the seawall circuit for the countless and breathtaking ocean and mountain views, and another to explore the winding trails. These are two very distinct experiences of Vancouver's treasured green gem. The independent tour map will describe how to get the absolute best of both these worlds.

Street Art Cycling Tour

We start the tour at 1754 Davie Street at English Bay Bike Rentals. From the rental shop, we head to the seawall and ride east towards Main Street. This section includes a scenic cycle along False Creek. Once we arrive at Mt. Pleasant, your guide will take you on a tour of the back alley tapestries behind Main Street. These colourful works of street art were commissioned for the Vancouver Mural Festival. Your guide will also point out local graffiti, explaining the process, meaning and consequences of unsanctioned street art. After a solid introduction to the neighbourhood, riders will have a chance to stop for a quick break at Vancouver's famous artisan bakery, Cartems Donuts. With vegan and gluten-free options, there is a donut for everyone. We highly recommend the London Fog! With a bit of a sugar buzz, riders will continue north towards the False Creek Flats and the second group of murals. Along this path we will pass the newly finished Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Once at the flats, riders will be shown murals from the inaugural Mural Festival in 2016.    From the flats, we will continue the tour north, towards Strathcona. The Strathcona neighbourhood contains a famous graffiti alley, a giant canvas dedicated to Jimi Hendrix and the last of the Mural Festival submissions.  To complete the ride, your guide will take you behind Gastown to Crab Park and along the seawall back to the bike shop. Crab has some of the best views in the city - the perfect way to end your afternoon.
