Vancouver's urban area with all of its museums, historic districts, and outdoor cafes is one big space to discover. You can cycle here almost year round, but during the rainy months it can be quite difficult especially for those that prefer a more off-road approach.

If you’re one of those adventure seekers, visit the nearest neighbourhood of Vancouver and explore some of its adrenaline pumping routes. Just 30 minutes from the city you can find all sorts of mountain and cross-country trails. The North Shore is known as a perfect mountain biking place. Various climbs, woodlands, and technical downhill rides can all be found here. North Vancouver is a world class biking destination for riders of all skill levels!
