What You'll Get
Since cheetah-shoes don't yet exist and a tree stump with a saddle on it is hopelessly immobile, bicycles remain the best way to tour a city. See Vancouver's sights in two-wheeled fashion with today's deal: for $24, you get a three-hour guided bicycle tour of Stanley Park from Love4Adventure (a $49 value). Bike and helmet rental is included in the price of the deal, or you can bring your own personal penny-farthing.
Love4Adventure launches guided bicycle tours daily in some of the globe's top exploration destinations, and the three-hour Stanley Park tour will blaze a bike-worn trail through some of the most picturesque portions of the urban naturescape. Love4Adventure's Groupon tours commence at the Denman Street Bikes 'n Blades at 8:45 a.m., from which one of the knowledgeable and strapping tour guides will lead you on a thigh-powered trip through the land. You'll ride along the scenic Sea Wall and roll past the park's sights, including the 9 O'Clock Gun, Coal Harbour, and English Bay. As you cruise past the views, you'll hear tales of the park's important past players, such as lighthouse keeper Captain Jones, Lewis and Clark's hopelessly lost horseman Fred, and tireless Sea Wall constructor James Cunningham.
Take advantage of this chance to see the city in a jazzed-up version of walking, and relish the breathtaking bay-hugged views. Tours are by appointment only, so call ahead at least 12 hours in advance to book your bikeventure.
