What you'll do
Explore Vancouver's beautiful scenic vistas and cycling friendly roadways while enjoying an experience designed for people who love to explore new cities on bikes. Our local VeloGuide will show you some of the best and safest routes to navigate you through beautiful sea side cruising and rising to the occasion on a few little climbs for some breath taking views. Start: Cyklus Spin Studio From there we will ride through downtown and up to the top of the North Shore mountains. Stop for a Java or refresher along the way. We will then ride across the Lion's Gate Bridge and cruise along the seaside. We can do a nice climb and admire the City views along the way or find our way back to the Spin Studio. Enjoy a post-ride beverage. The safety and enjoyment of the guests are paramount to VeloGuide. We will always regroup and if we have larger groups, we will add additional VeloGuides so that each guest can get the most out of the ride. We will have up to 2 hours of riding time.
My name is Jillian, one of the co-founders of VeloGuide which was launched in October 2017 as a bold new initiative to connect the traveling cyclist with a bike and a guide all across the globe. We understand that when visiting a big city, getting out on a road bike ride can be overwhelming. Traffic, safe routes, fear of getting lost and finding a bike can make the idea a non-starter. Jay or one of our amazing local Vancouver VeloGuides will take all the guesswork out of it and you will truly be able to #ridelikealocal. Their local knowledge and love of cycling make this experience unique! VeloGuide was formally launched in October 2017 as a bold new initiative to connect the travelling cyclist with a bike and a guide all across the globe. We are excited to be part of the Airbnb experiences community
