Begin your bike tour in central Vancouver; meet your guide, and go through a safety briefing before setting off on a city ride.
First, cruise to the West End, a historic waterfront neighborhood known for its grand homes. Continue to the 1,000-acre (405-hectares) Stanley Park and take in views of the North Shore Mountains and city skyline—see as far as Mount Baker on a clear day.
Next, bring your bike onto the ferry for a quick ride to Granville Island. Stop just long enough to stroll through the Public Market and grab lunch in an idyllic locale before heading through Olympic Village and Chinatown to Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, dubbed the "world’s top city garden" by National Geographic.
Conclude your tour with a spin through Gastown, a historic logging outpost turned chic entertainment and shopping district. Arrive back at the bike rental shop by mid-afternoon.
