Ride a Bike Around the Seawall

Join Gabriela for a ride around the Vancouver seawall and Stanley Park. The seawall is a very popular place for people to come and rent bikes or bring their own to see different parts of Vancouver. The seawall takes you all the way around Stanley Park with the ocean on one side and the forest on the other, through to Second Beach and English Bay park.

For this experience you can bring your own bike, if you have one, or there are many places to rent a bike in downtown for between $10 and $20.

We are going to meet in front of the Vancouver Convention Centre and go from there. I will wait for you right in front of the giant blue water drop statute that is directly outside the Mahony & Sons in the Vancouver Convention Centre West Building.

This experience is open to...:

Reflection Questions
What did you think of the view from the seawall? Do you prefer people watching on the path, or soaking in the scenery of the mountains.

Do you notice how much the scenery changes and you bike from one neighbourhood to the next? Are the people changing too?

Does the Bike ride make you want to visit another place? Where? What about the bike ride reminds you of this place?
