List of the Best Summer E-Bike Routs from EbikeBC
At an hour’s ride from central Vancouver, riding to Lynn Canyon without your e-bike motor could be a bit of a chore. With that pedal assistance, you’ll arrive with enough energy to take in a trail, some gorgeous waterfall views and even take the plunge into the swimming hole if the mood takes you. We understand not everyone who rides an electric bicycle is at peak health. If you’re not much of a hiker, get a picture on the suspension bridge and try out one of the shorter loop trails to stretch your legs before the ride home. On your e-bike you can take the Union-Adanac Corridor to get across Vancouver at speed.
Yes, it's a well-known fact that Stanley Park is a popular spot for e-bike rides. But trust us, the experience is still unbeatable. Charge up your e-bike, pack essentials for a full day of exploration, and set out to discover the beauty of this iconic Vancouver landmark. If you have kids who don't ride, convert your e-bike into a child-carrying cargo bike so they can join the adventure. Casual riders can relish the breathtaking sights along the 10-kilometer Sea Wall. And if you're a trail lover, make sure to explore the rose garden, Vancouver Rowing Club, and Lost Lagoon within the park.
Hop on your e-bike and within an hour, you'll reach the scenic Deep Cove from central Vancouver. Enjoy a satisfying workout as you pedal your way and reward yourself with a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters, a rarity at the city's beaches. You can also rent a kayak or a stand-up paddle board to explore the stunning coast or just laze around and catch some sun before the grey months roll in.
Queen Elizabeth Park and VanDusen Botanical Gardens
Indulge in a leisurely ride along the Midtown/Ridgeway and Ontario Street route, where cyclist-friendly traffic awaits. Take in some nature without having to leave the city by taking in the verdant Bledel Floral Conservatory, Quarry Gardens and VanDusen Botanical Garden all in an afternoon. Queen Elizabeth Park's steep hills are a perfect match for your electric bike's capabilities. Let the motor lend a helping hand as you ascend, and relish the exhilarating descent on your way back home.
Sunset Beach to Kitsilano
Explore some of Vancouver’s best beaches on your e-bike, starting at Sunset and ending at Kits Beach. The seaside bicycle route can be completed in 30 minutes, which leaves plenty of time for a dip, a meal by the shore or a stop off at Science World or Granville Island. After a fast ride around the coast, finish off with a chilled summer drink at the Cider House.
