Granville Island is a great place to bike to & the Winterruption festival that takes over the peninsula for the weekend of February 19-21 is a great excuse to go. You'll find free parking for your bike, no problem, & get some fresh air along the seawall on the way there.
Check out all the open studios, events, & performers on the Winterruption website.
The Talking Stick Festival is also happening the last two weekends of February. We are extremely lucky here in BC to have so many distinct Aboriginal communities & traditions. (Did you know there are 37 different First Nations languages in BC alone?!?)
The Talking Stick Festival showcases the visual arts, performance, storytelling & culture of some amazing emerging & established talents. Events are happening all over the city, many of them at the Roundhouse Community Centre, which is a great venue to bike to, just off the seawall in Yaletown.
You can find the full list of events on the Talking Stick Website events page here.
The VAG is just off the Dunsmuir & Hornby separated bike lanes--very easy to ride to from various corners of downtown. February 20th there are performances & tours various times in the evening. There are special rates on advance tickets if you buy before February 20--details here. If you plan to go just a couple of times during the year, a membership could be well worth buying.
