2021-03-21 Update: The Vancouver Parks Board has recently voted to again have one lane of Stanley Park drive dedicated for bicycles from now until October 2021.
Bicycling is probably the 2nd most popular activity in Stanley Park after walking. You can bicycle completely around Stanley Park on the Stanley Park seawall which is 9 kilometres. The Stanley Park Seawall has a separated one-way (counter-clockwise) lane for bicycles. The speed limit is 15km. Please don't speed because a number of pedestrians have been hit and serious hurt and killed by bicyclists!
The Vancouver Parks Board has a cycling plan for Stanley Park: Stanley Park Cycling Plan.
You can rent the city-funded Bike share bicycles in a few locations within Stanley Park. For more freedom, you can rent a bike from one of the many full-service bike rental shops just outside of Stanley Park.
