Don’t let the Vancouver weather hold you back from renting an e-bike!

If you want to take an afternoon or day off an explore Vancouver by bike, don’t wait too long for a sunny outlook from Environment Canada because, well…it is Vancouver! Can anyone really predict what is going to happen with our crazy weather with any predictability?

Here are Bees Knees e- Bike rentals, we can find a rental time that suits not only you or your group, but also the weather window you see outside your front door.

We offer 2-hour rentals at only $35, which can get you to a coffee shop, around Stanley Park, and home again before the first rain sprinkles start to happen.

With our rain friendly renters so far we have seen a great trend – a good old Vancouver rain jacket with warm layers, rain pants if you have them, and Blundstones or Gore Tex runners seem to be popular. If you bring your own helmet, there is your head cover! If you want to borrow one of our clean rental helmets – they are free of charge and even have an almost hip look to them.

So don’t let the weather get you down – find a destination, a food stop, and think how much you can do in only 2 hours from our location at Burrard and Drake. We are just a starting point away from a great adventure.

Benefits of eBike Touring In Vancouver

There is no doubt that one of the best ways to tour the City of Vancouver is not on foot, but by eBike. Not only are they easy to operate, you can get from here to there and anywhere in-between without having to deal with the hassle of parking a vehicle. Plus, with an extensive cycling network of trails and biking paths, you can visit many spectacular sights in and around the city without having to be a hiker. Here are a few of the benefits of touring Vancouver on an eBike:

Parking Fees

We’ve already mentioned you won’t spend extra time trying to locate a parking space for an eBike but did you know you’ll even save money with one? That’s because there are few places in Vancouver to park a car that won’t cost you a parking fee. With an eBike you just need to lock it somewhere safely and go.


Another great thing about eBiking around the city is that you won’t be stuck in traffic. Sitting in a vehicle in a line up exposes you to air pollution and increases your stress level. With an eBike you can get around traffic jams and not miss appointments or attractions.

This is not always obvious, but if you are touring Vancouver on an eBike and need to get somewhere for an event of some kind, you can very often arrive at your destination sooner than you would if you drove. Add hunting for parking to traffic jams slowing you down and you’ll know what we mean.

Even though the eBike has an electric motor, you can still receive health benefits by switching the motor off and pedaling up that incline to your Vancouver sightseeing destination. In fact, you can switch back and forth all through your bike tour of the city.


Nothing beats exploring Vancouver from the vantage point of a bicycle seat. You get to take your time, stopping whenever you please to wander around a location on foot if you desire. Plus, you will be able to visit several sites that you could not even get close to by using a vehicle.


What couldn’t be more fun than cycling in and around the city with your significant other or whole family? It’s a great group activity that allows each individual rider the independence to go at their own pace and do what they want without having to be stuck in a car for hours going here and there.
