Foolishly, I left my road bike and kit in Spokane. Arrived in Vancouver with a goofy old bike hat and some Hincapie socks...no chamois, no bibs, so silly. I stumbled into this busy bike rental place and rented a cruiser with my wife for a leisurely ride along the shoreline from Stanley Park down to the Granville Bridge. And my bike got a flat tire, so I called them - less than five minutes later they brought me another bike, and we kept bumping along.

I ride a lot, so asked them about the serious road bikes hanging up high...they grilled me a bit about my experience, then agreed to rent the Specialized Allex Elite, with Shimano 105 - 11-speed, compact chainrings, 11-32 cassette. Cost was $16/hour. I showed up the next day and spent two hours taking the Bypass up the "steep hill" into the heart of Stanley park, then a second loop around the shoreline - (warning - very narrow and slow.)

Every experience here was excellent - owner is savvy, staff is very responsive...busy place, great location.

We found this bike hire retailer to be very reasonably priced, and they operate on a pro rate basis, offering really good bikes. (Specialised Sirrus X hybrid bikes). The price includes bike hire, helmet, lock and handlebar bag.

Our family of four visited Vancouver in early October. We rented four bikes for the day at English Bay Bike rentals. Easy walk in rental. The shop is located at the entrance to Stanley park. The staff followed covid protocols set out by the city. Knowledgeable and friendly they had us out the door in 15 minutes. A map of the area was provided and pointers about where to start and end our journey. Vancouver is a bike friendly city. At the end of Davie St you can basically turn right and you are into Stankey Park. Turn left and you can cruise English Bay beach and Sunset beach promenade. After touring Stanley park we ventured along the bike path and got a lift on the Aquabus ferry at the Hornby St ferry dock to Granville Island.

We were able to rent bikes for the day to go from English Bay around to Wreck Beach. Bikes were in excellent shape and we were provided with locks and helmets as well. They even changed the seat type for us to ensure they didn’t get swiped while enjoying the sun! Thanks again!

We rented a Specialized Road bike twice. They are super efficient, I booked online and you just pick up. Bike was in great shape, brand new. Staff are amazing and they know their bikes and can advise on size and others. Reasonable price. Best place to rent bikes in Vancouver.

Stopped in here to hire bikes for a day to ride around Stanley Park and over the Lions Gate bridge through North Vancouver to lighthouse park (a slightly more serious undertaking than we anticipated!). We received fantastic advice on where to go / what to see along the way and the bikes loaned to us were some of the highest quality bikes we've rented anywhere. They really are taken care of well - perfect brakes and smooth gearing. Pretty good value too!

E-mailed in advance to book e-bykes. Very pleasant response and easily made arrangements. The bikes were of a very good quality and the service we received in getting going was faultless. Helmets and locks included in the price and very reasonable. Would highly recommend English Bay Bike Rentals

We rented from English Bay Bike Rentals on a sunny Saturday afternoon with no reservation and we had no problem getting a quality bike and helmet. Great location and a one minute walk to Stanley Park.

When visiting Vancouver, be sure to include a bike ride around beautiful Stanley Park! One of our trip highlights was our bike ride using English Bay Bike Rental on Davies. The bike, helmet & lock (equipment) were superb. The rental process was easy & the staff was helpful. The bike shop is near the southeast side of the park.
Strongly recommend this fun!

Renting a bike in Vancouver is the best way to see the beautiful city and English Bay Bike Rentals not only had the perfect location to start exploring from but it also offered excellent bikes! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly as well. We have ridden and rented a lot of bikes but selection here was perfect. We elected to rent road bikes with disc brakes which made cruising around Stanley Park, Granville Island and the seawall a breeze. We rented them for 24hrs and even rode them to concert in the park at night!! Very enjoyable experience thanks to the staff and excellent condition of the bikes. Recommend!!
