Bicycling Vancouver’s Stanley Park Seawall Trail


stanleypark_overviewmap_1200Just one word, “magnificent,” summarizes this nearly nine kilometer ride around the coastal periphery of lovely Stanley Park. You pass Coal Harbour, Brockton Point, Burrard Inlet, First Narrows (Lions Gate), English Bay, Lost Lagoon, and several beaches during this remarkable ride. If you don’t so anything else while visiting Vancouver, take the time to rent a bike (there are numerous resources nearby) and pedal the Stanley Park Seawall. Cheers!
