This was the first thing we did in Vancouver, and a great way to get to know the city and explore the beautiful sea wall and Stanley Park with our kids aged 8 and 11. The recommended minimum age of 10 is about right, although both our kids are experienced cyclists (unlike their parents who haven’t ridden a bike for 30 years!)
Our brilliant guide Lana made sure we were all safe and had no trouble keeping up with the city’s well laid out cycle routes and frequent stops to take in landmarks, art and nature, all accompanied by her knowledgable, entertaining and at times tragic explanations, delivered in an age appropriate way for the children.
With baskets on the bikes for water, bags, cameras etc and her exceptional knowledge of Vancouver’s history, we highly recommend this for a family with older children or couples, groups or on your own. Everyone was friendly and enjoyed the tour. Amazingly we covered 10K and came back to several spots later in our trip (Stanley Park open air pool was great, as was Cardero’s for lunch on the sea wall). The rain forest in Stanley Park was stunning, and somewhere we might otherwise have missed.

We had the best time on this tour and lucked out with the best weather. Lana our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and thoughtful of all the riders in our group. It was a great way to experience parts of this beautiful city and Stanley Park and learn much about the history in the area. Our group was large, maxed out at 12, which included four kids, two of which were ours (12 and 15) and they were able to keep up with the adults with no problem. Lots of stops and opportunities to take pictures. If you are at all a novice rider or struggle with hills, would recommend the upgrade to an e-bike as there are a couple of small hills where having the e-bike will come in handy. However, the pace is slow/moderate and the tour guide makes sure everyone can get through regardless so no need to worry. A very fun activity for the whole family and so glad we did it.

A fantastic experience and the perfect way to see Stanley Park! I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Vancouver for the first time or even if you are already a Vancouver expert!
The bikes are great quality and the pace of the tour is enjoyable for any age.

My guide for the tour was Clement, who was outstanding! I have participated on many bike tours all around the world and trust me when I say that Clement was a top tier tour guide. He was knowledgeable, approachable, responsible and kept the tour engaging the entire time.
Clement made sure that the group stayed together and did an excellent job explaining where we were headed next / what to expect / etc. He knew all the fun facts about not only Stanley Park but the city of Vancouver in general.

Vancouver makes it easy for bikers with 99% of the tour being on designated bike paths/lanes.

I look forward to visiting Vancouver again soon and participating on Cycle City's other experience, The Grand Tour which lets you see even more of the city. They also offer bike rentals for a few hours or multiple days, if you prefer a more 'self-guided' experience.

This is NOT a leisurely paced tour, and when bike accidents occur there is no one to help you.

The pace of the tour is too fast, and weaker cyclists are left far behind. There were 18 people on this tour with only one lead guide. The guide is on an electric bike, while everyone else is pedaling, and she allowed the strongest bike riders to set the pace. There is no one in the back of the pack to help when a bike crashes or breaks down.

My husband stayed with our son towards the back of the pack. There were other people, including an older lady, who could not keep up with the pace of the tour guide. Catastrophe happened when a large moving truck cut off the older woman and our son, causing them to skid and stop suddenly. My husband shielded them with his bike, but due to the speed of how fast things happened, he crashed headfirst into our son's bike. The only reason he did not get a serious eye or head injury was because he was wearing glasses and a helmet.

Long story short - the tour guide had no idea what was going on. My husband was lying in the center of the road, being helped by passers-by for over 20 minutes before the tour guide came looking for him. She poorly bandaged his eye (see picture) and because my son's bike was damaged in the crash she gave him her electric bike. He is 16 years old and has never ridden an electric bike before. Within 15 minutes, he crashed again but was OK. Just anxious because he didn't know how to ride the electric bike.

This tour needs to reevaluate its safety guidelines, tour capacity guidelines, and need to have guide supervision at the front and back of the tour. They need better first aid training. They need better emergency response procedures. They also need to review their customer service skills. When my husband and son finally got back to the bike shop, not one single employee asked him how he was. Complete and utter lack of safety and emergency response on the part of Cycle City Tours.

The bike tour was very well planned and the guide was incredible! Very knowledgable and super fun. Incredible views around the city!!

I think that the biggest issue is that you couldn't hear him very well. My suggestion is to have, if possible, some kind of mic because having someone telling you about the city should be half the experience and without that, it seems like a very pricey tour.

Our family of six (kids ages 12, 9, 6, and 6) took a 3 hour Stanley Park bike tour led by Mark. It was a fantastic introduction to the city and Mark was a stellar guide. He was knowledgeable, attentive to the different ages and interests of our kids, kind, funny, and safety-oriented. The perfect introduction to the city — sure to be a highlight of our trip. Would recommend to any active family visiting! Bike tours have become our new favorite way to see a new city and Mark and Cycle City are standouts. So much to see, learn, and do it this beautiful city. Would love to come back and take the Grand Tour. Thanks Mark and Cycle City!

My partner and I were in Vancouver for a couple of days prior to a cruise to Alaska. We decided a bike tour would be a good way to get to know the city a little better. We booked through a travel agent in the UK, but you can also book online or in person at the bike shop.
The staff were very friendly from the outset, and they were able to answer any queries we had about the tour.

We were set up with a bike and helmet each. (I think helmets are a legal requirement for cycling in Canada. Just a heads up. No pun intended.) We used road bikes which were in good working order and fitted with normal road tyres.

The weather was pretty good on the day we did the tour, we were however warned by most of the locals that this is a rare occurrence, so be ready to cycle in the rain.

We were guided by Paulo, a seasoned cyclist with a very comprehensive knowledge of past and present Vancouver.

The city itself is fairly well adapted for cycling. I found it slightly easier to cycle around than my home city of Oxford (famously a cycling city) inspite of having to get used to cycling on the right.

Mingling with traffic was minimal as there were cycle lanes all the way around the route, and we left the roads behind when we entered Stanley Park.
The pace set was reasonable, so you don't need to be massively fit, but we did cover about 30k in total, so if you're an avid couch potato you may struggle.
The tour included a visit to Granville Island, where we found almost every type of cuisine known to man available. (The salmon burger was amazing.)
Most of the route is on tarmac (asphalt?) though it does also cover a few gravel tracks around the park's rainforest areas. The bikes seemed to handle these without any trouble though.

In short this is a great tour for anyone who is interested in the history of the city, and are competent with the basics of handling a bicycle.

Josh led our bike tour to and from Stanley Park. This tour is a must! We opted to try e-bikes and enjoyed every moment. The staff at Cycle City provided excellent, friendly customer service. Josh, the owner, not only knows bikes and the city but he shares the local history, anthropology, eco systems, cultural and social aspects of the park and surrounding metro area. He also provided referrals for restaurant and sight seeing activities. We’ll done!

We were visiting Vancouver for a short time so had to make the most of it and felt a Bike Tour would be the best use of our time and a great way to start the vacation so we reached out to Cycle City and booked ourselves a Stanely park tour.

Bottom line, we loved it. We are a family of 4 with an 11 and a 6 year old who are not easy to please, but we all had such a wonderful time and didn't know where the time flew.

Paulo was our guide and he was amazing! Extremely knowledgeable and was open to answering any questions we had, learnt a tremendous amount about Vancouver from him, history, economy, politics, culture, etc. Most of all we connected with him instantly which made our tour even more enjoyable.

Definitely recommend Cycle City and Paulo.

Absolutely fantastic time with Greg around Stanley Park. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very friendly. It was nice to hear about Vancouver from a local who lives there. He took time to focus on the information that was more relevant to our interests. It probably helped that it was only my partner and I on the tour. We lucked out with the weather and got some spectacular photos. Would definitely recommend it over the bus tour as you avoid the traffic and get a more intimate view of the city. The cycle lanes in the downtown area make the experience safe and very enjoyable. Probably one of the best tours I’ve ever been on anywhere!
