Fraser River Bike Tours & Rentals
Grand Opening June 25th
Fraser River Bike Tours & Rentals is now open daily for your cycling needs. Bike rentals, cycling tours, school field trips and expert cycling advice are all available at our site beside the new River Market and the Fraser River Discovery Centre on the Quay boardwalk right beside the Fraser River. We specialize in families, we have all the gear you’ll need, and in large groups (up to forty +) and we tailor our pricing so that this excellent cycling is within the reach of everyone.
We feature Devinci and Trek bikes of all sizes designed for a comfortable ride and for your family’s needs have lots of trailer bikes (1/2 bikes that connect on the adults) as well as single and double trailers. We provide sterilized helmets and even rain gear if needed. All clients are given an orientation to their bike and to the route they choose to ride along with a map.
New Westminster has invested millions of dollars into their cycling trails and lanes and some of them are quiet, scenic and almost hill free, especially the Queensborough Loop. This 13 or 18km ride follows the Fraser west and then up and over the now bike friendly Queensborough Bridge for an amazing panoramic view. Then down and around the new Port Royal cycling loop before the South Dyke Rd loop; this ride is simply amazing. This is only one of many great rides based out of our shop.
June 25th Events:
1. Free Ride: (10:00am to 11:00am) Gather at 9:45am at our shop. If you have your own bike there is no charge, if you need a bike we will provide one for you free (parents need to leave a Drivers License or a security deposit). We will also provide you with helmets and even rain gear if needed. Our guides will lead you on a gentle (kid friendly) half hour (or so) ride on the boardwalk. Reservations are needed to guarantee a bike.

3. Queensborough Loop Tour: (1:00pm to 3:00pm) We will lead a tour of the 18 km loop. If you have your own bike there will be no charge, if you need a bike we will rent you one for half price (2 hrs, $10 each) but the tour will be free. Get to know the great rides in your area.
