The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Robson Street
Robson Street is a shopper's paradise. Whether a window shopper or a serious trendsetter, a fashionista or a dabbler, the crowd of independent boutiques, quirky one-off shops, and well-known luxury brands on Robson Street have something to cater for every itch in your wallet. As a result, it draws a diverse crowd, and the people-watching along this famous walking thoroughfare is a primary attraction. In between the clothing shops both high-street and budget-friendly are a number of cafes to lay down your load, as well as numerous specialty stores ranging in their wares from music, to art, to city souvenirs. Known as "Vancouver's Runway," if a new trend is on the rise, you'd spot it here first.

    Good service and location
    Spokes is great. Excellent bikes, efficient, well located for accessing Stanley Park. We’ve been before and will come again. However, 4* only because of the irritating rule that means you need a deposit in cash or with your actual credit card - you can’t use any form of mobile money / Apple Pay. Which is nuts - so please find a way to modernise the system. We didn’t have our cards or cash so eventually left a cell phone behind (even though we offered digital cash deposits like for car hire).

    Great experience, lovely ride
    Great admin service, quick to rent and a great overall experience. I rented an ebike and enjoyed a leisurely ride in Stanley Park. Payment was quick and I received the receipt in my inbox almost immediately.

    Perfect outfitter for our bike adventure
    On our stay in Vancouver BC, we rented bikes and spent about ½ a day taking a bike ride around the scenic Seawall. The place we chose to rent bikes from was Spokes Bicycle Rentals, a short walk from our hotel, and from the entrance to Stanley Park's Seawall. We found the people at Spokes to be knowledgeable, friendly and efficient in preparing us to ride. The price was reasonable in comparison to other companies, and they were highly recommended. The staff selected appropriate bikes, helped us with adjustments, and gave instructions about the gears (which was different than we’d used before), lock, safety, etc. Helmets and baskets came with the cost of the rental. They had a large inventory of bikes that looked good and were in great shape. I noticed they had a variety of other bikes and accessories available that we did not need, including tandems, kid-bikes that attached to an adult bike, little trailers for babies or pets, e-bikes, and higher performance bikes than what we required. We were happy with our dealings with Spokes and would recommend them to others looking for a nice bike ride. (I believe they also sell bikes, not sure if they might do tours.)

    Good quality bikes and friendly , efficient staff.
    There are a lot of bike rentals shops around Stanley park. We were on a walking tour and the guide recommended Spokes . Spokes has friendly staff who proceeded our requests very quickly. They even let us try a tandem it wasn’t for us. I wanted to write a review as the bike I had was electric and so easy to operate. If you are a bit nervous this one was fab.. No gears and a very comfortable seat. Stanley park is mainly flat and a delight to cycle round. If you wanted lunch nearby we like Breka bakery just up the hill.

    Easy and efficient e-bike hire
    We hired two e-bikes to ride around Stanley Park. We are well built and over 6’3” but they didn’t bat an eyelid and presented us with bikes that were just the right size. We rode the bikes for 6 hours, used the e-assist to get up to Prospect Point via the trail from Beaver Lake and still had battery power left at the end of our session. The staff made it a really positive experience and I would thoroughly recommend Spokes.

    Highly recommended
    I booked a bike online the day before I needed it. I have hired bikes all over the world and this place made it all very easy, reasonably priced and the bikes were very new. There is a big car park opposite which was very cheap to park for the day. The staff were helpful and knowledgable. Highly recommended.

    Great bike hire company. Reservations not required.
    No reservations are required, you just turn up. Bikes are hired and charged by the nearest 15 minutes. We have used this company before and had no issues. We hired the bikes for around 3 hours (total cost $66, £40 for two). Beforehand, we popped into the Safeway supermarket nearby for some lunch and ate this by Second Beach under the trees. We biked a bit further than we did on our previous visit and locked the bikes up at English Bay Beach. We had an ice cream here and admired the bronze cheerful sculptures before biking back through the Park to the flagship shop on West Georgia Street. It was a very hot day (mid July) so I recommend taking sunscreen.

    Such a fun way to see the city
    We rented bikes very last minute, and it was the highlight of our trip. We were able to go around most of Vancouver in a matter of hours. Vancouver is such a wonderful city promoting the use of bikes. We felt very safe even on the city streets Since most have bike lanes. The process of renting was very easy. They were a lot of bikes to choose from. We were shocked at how little we paid for the amount of hours. We had the bikes age ranges from 7 to 12 for our kids. it was a highlight of everyone’s trip.

We rented two bikes and a pull behind chariot for our three year old. The staff were friendly and receptive storing our stroller for us while we spent the day at the aquarium and riding around Stanley park. It was a great was to take in the city.
