Have just returned from an Alaskan cruise and a week in our port of departure, the magnificently beautiful city of Vancouver where close to Stanley Park are at least three bicycle rental shops. We biked on designated lanes through the park and joined the biker lanes over the Lion's Gate Bridge with its breathtaking view of the coastal mountains and then into the up-market community of West Vancouver, nestled between between ocean and mountain, and visited their fabulous and bustling Park Royal Village Shopping area (all outdoors) and left our bikes on available racks perfectly safe while we were awe-struck by the Whole Foods Store where we made some purchases, to take back to our hotel, after learning that they provided green sacks to fit our bikes. We explored the city on a single transit ticket which included above rail sky-train, subway and Seabus (small ferry) as well as the best bus system I have seen anywhere where bike racks are on the front of all busses.Bikers do have to watch out for pedestrians though for I have never seen so many joggers and walkers anywhere and all looking fit and happy, specially in West Vancouver. I could go on and on since I'm still on cloud nine.
