Cyril Alec "Bob" Stiles (10 October 1904 – 5 March 1985) was a New Zealand rower. He won a Silver medal at the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles in the coxless pairs with partner Rangi Thompson.[1] He also won a Bronze medal at the 1938 British Empire Games in Sydney in the eights.[1]

A Christchurch street is named after Stiles. Stiles Place runs off another street named after a New Zealand rower; that is Arnst Place named after Richard Arnst. Both are near that part of the Avon River used by local rowers known as Kerr's Reach.
