Enjoy the 'Off the Beaten Path' side of Vancouver
Discover the 'local side' of Vancouver while cruising effortlessly along on an electric bike. Part 1 of this enchanting route has you e-biking through the winding paths of canopied forest ending high up on a bluff overlooking the ocean and North Shore mountains. Part 2 cruises five of the legendary Kitsilano beaches stopping anywhere you please for a free picnic and relaxation, while enjoying a glimpse into what it's like to live in Vancouver. Transitioning between the 2 parts of this ride we effortlessly e-bike along the beautiful Arbutus Greenway corridor and thru charming and upscale neighbourhoods. The day is yours to discover!
We meet at 9:30 at the Olympic Flames at Jack Poole Plaza, Vancouver Convention Centre. The electric bikes are brought to us! A few minutes spent selecting a helmet and fitting the bikes, then an operational description of bike features with time to get comfortable. Our tour departs using protected bike lanes south to Kitsilano. We cruise the Arbutus Greenway, and towards the UBC Endowment Forest. We make our way 'off the beaten path' through the forest and pop out on campus. From there it is a short ride to the beaches where we pick a lovely ocean view and stop for a picnic and pictures to wrap up our tour.
