    New to Vancouver

    Hey guys,

    I've just started a working holiday here in Vancouver (from the UK) and have just picked up my lovely new Bullit. Just need to work out where to ride, how to get there and that sort of stuff. Am currently living in Kitsilano and I'm looking for advice on local riding around Kits/Vancouver as well as north shore riding spots and the best ways to get there. Or anywhere else for that matter! I don't have a car, and I can't afford one now I've bought that bike, so any advice on how to get around with just bikes, sea buses etc would be great.

    Thanks in advance, and hopefully I will see you out there!

    Steven.

    You need to do some searching on your own.

    Also a local bike shop is a great source of info.
    Here are a couple of sites to get you going.

    That should get you going!

    In the Kits area, you're within spitting distance of the Pacific Spirit Park but that is generally mild and manicured XC trails, just lots of it. A Bullit is serious overkill for that terrain. But it's within riding distance of anywhere in Kits.

    Many of the North Shore buses do have bike racks on the front, so once you get across Burrard Inlet on the seabus you can get your bike to where you want to go. Check the transit website for the buses that get you to the top of Lynn Valley or up McNair to access Mountain Highway and the Mt.Fromme trails, or that take you down the Seymour Parkway to the Parkgate Mall to access the lower Seymour trail head and the Old Buck/Bridle Path.

    Cool thanks a lot for the info. I did actually get the bike across to the pacific spirit park and it was definitely overkill. I felt mental riding it around those little trails.

    Will check out the north shore on the weekend.

    Thanks again chaps.
