Description

Sidesaddle presents the Sweet Ride, hosted by Cycle City Tours.

Join us for a guided group ride on the streets and paths of Vancouver. Along the way we’ll enjoy a sweet treat at one of Vancouver’s many delicious dessert spots. First up: Earnest Ice Cream.

What to expect:

A friendly, leisurely group ride with plenty of stops for rest, storysharing and picture taking. You’ll experience new routes through your city, and experience old favourites in a new way.

What to bring:

  • Your bike, in good working order
  • Your helmet
  • Lights - it's an evening ride and you may be riding home after dark
  • Comfortable clothing, including rain gear if we expect showers (always expect showers)
  • Cash for your choice of treat, and to tip your guide that’s how you roll

FAQ’s

Do I have to book in advance? To make the best use of the limited space on the ride, we ask that everyone purchase a ticket.

What if it rains? We live in a rainforest so we ride and eat treats, rain or shine! Bring appropriate clothing.

What if I’m late? The tour will leave on time, but if you are late try calling the shop at 604.428.2453. We may be able to help you catch the group.

What kind of bicycle do I need? Your bike should be comfortable for you, and in good repair. If you suspect your bike needs servicing or adjustments, Sidesaddle would be happy to assess it for you in the days leading up to the ride.

What if I’m not a very fast/sporty/confident rider? If you have basic biking skills and are fit enough for a good long walk, you’ll be fine. Your guide will set a relaxed pace will try to cater to the slowest rider in the group. Expect to ride for 15-20 minutes at a time between stops. Your guide will go over general riding etiquette so that everyone rides safely.

Do I have to wear a helmet and bring lights? Yes. It’s the law in British Columbia for all cyclists to wear a helmet and to use lights when cycling after dusk, and we don't have money for bail.

Can kids come? Kids are welcome provided they are: accompanied by a parent or guardian, experienced on a bike, and mature enough to spend the evening with a group of potentially boring grownups.

Should I tip my guide? Guiding is demanding work requiring mad skillz and a *sparkling* personality. While by no means mandatory, tipping is appropriate and the guides appreciate it for a job well done!

What is your cancellation policy? If you need to cancel we will refund your ticket price with 48 hours’ notice. With less than 48 hours’ notice, no refund will be provided.
