Some of the Best Family Biking Trails in Vancouver, Coast & Mountains, British Columbia

Vancouver is known for being a super bike-friendly city. In the past few years the downtown core has enjoyed the addition of dedicated bike lanes and in the summer of 2016 the City of Vancouver introduced Mobi, a public bike-sharing program. There are lots of amazing spots to ride in Vancouver, like the Stanley Park Seawall, Queen Elizabeth Park or Pacific Spirit Park, but I thought I’d share some of our favourite, family-friendly cycling routes from outside Vancouver.

The Penders – North & South Island – Gulf Islands

For Christmas I was given a gift certificate for a two night stay at an accommodation property called Morning Moon on Pender Island, British Columbia in the Gulf of Georgia .  I had never been to Pender Island before so I was really looking forward to this new adventure.

The trip took some planning.  First reservations were made through BC Ferries, www.bcferries.com, which are strongly recommended for the Gulf Island Ferry. The ferry departs from Tsawwassen at 10:10 am during the week and makes stops at Galiano, Mayne and then arrives at Pender at 12:20 pm.  My friend and I had breakfast on the ferry and hooked-up with a fun group in the cafeteria lineup that was heading to Pender Island for a wedding at Poets Cove.  We even got an invite to the wedding, could have been a sequel to the “wedding crashers”!

Ferry Trip Prince Rupert to Port Hardy

I had heard that the BC Ferries trip from Prince Rupert in the north to Port Hardy on Vancouver Island is like taking a cruise at a fraction of the price. As Prince Rupert is nearly 54 degrees latitude, mid-June is a wonderful time to do so, being light from early morning to late evening. I was heading south to my home on Vancouver Island. Read more…
