Stanley Park is a hot spot for cyclists; among its network of bike paths is the popular Seawall Promenade, which hugs the coast for 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). Bike travel is in a counterclockwise direction. On the south side of English Bay, a cycle path runs from Vanier Park to Point Grey and the university, passing some of the city’s best beaches on the way.
Near the entrance to Stanley Park, where Robson and Denman Streets meet, you’ll find a profusion of bike-rental shops. These include Bayshore Bicycles (745 Denman St., 604/688-2453) and Spokes Bicycle Rental (1798 W. Georgia St., 604/688-5141).
