Vancouver is a city unlike any other. Wherever you look, you see water or mountains — or both. In winter, the heart of downtown is 30 minutes from the ski slopes. In summer, sun seekers crowd its beaches and seaside promenades. And despite a rain-prone climate, it displays a perpetually sunny disposition. It is a modern, bike-friendly city with an extensive bike-path infrastructure that spans more than 300 kilometres and makes cycling a popular and easy choice for both Vancouverites and visitors.
