Are you the adventurous type who likes to march to the beat of your own drum? Be your own boss and decide where you want to go, eat and relax. This fantastic tour combines the freedom to explore on your own terms, at your own pace with a professionally created itinerary and GPS map to guide you.

There are different routes to choose from on our live digital maps mounted to your handle bars. We have longer (75 km +) and shorter (50 KM) routes available.

Explore the breathtaking beauty of Vancouver Island as you cycle along the Lochside Trail & Galloping Goose trail through the Saanich Peninsula & Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park.

If you are up to the added challenge, why not bike all the way into the quaint seaside city of Victoria & explore the city. Alternatively take the shorter route and head over to Brentwood Bay & spend a relaxing afternoon in the world famous Butchart gardens or take a kayak out for a paddle in the sheltered waters of Todd Inlet.

A completely unique experience!

What to expect

Start the day with a direct pickup in a private bus from your downtown Vancouver hotel or centrally located meeting point and drive to the ferry terminal at Tsawwassen. The ferry trip provides a relaxed start to the morning with an opportunity for wildlife viewing and spectacular views of the Salish Sea & Gulf Islands. You'll cross the Straight of Georgia and arrive at Swartz Bay on Vancouver Island where you begin your cycle along the Lochside Trail.

Pedal along the trail and through the Saanich Peninsula enjoying the gorgeous sights this coastline has to offer. Breath in the fresh sea air before making your way inland where you will stop for lunch at a local "farm to table" cafe, serving fresh ingredients from the area. After lunch, head to Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park where you'll cycle around the lake enjoying the pristine nature and tranquility en route to DevIne Vineyard. The final push up the hill into the winery is deservedly rewarded with a refreshing taste of the crisp and opulent wines this region offers. One can sit back, relax and take in the magnificent views over the Saanich Peninsula and beyond. Following the wine tasting, make your way back to the ferry terminal along quiet country roads and trails. At Swartz bay, board the ferry and make the voyage back to Vancouver. 

One can expect to cycle approximately 55 km (34 miles) on professionally maintained trails and quiet country roads. The route can be made longer or shorter depending upon the desires of the group. The duration of the tour is between 9 and 12 hours depending upon the speed of the group and route taken.

Paul and his team put on a fabulous guided cycling tour for us on Vancouver Island. It was an all inclusive trip and the hotels and restaurants Paul chose were first class. Paul was with us the whole time and added to the trip with his knowledge of the history and the geography. My son had a s...

We had an amazing experience on this trip. Paul and Rich were always there whenever we needed them but gave plenty of opportunity to ride at our own pace. The "extras" in addition to cycling (floating on the river, exploring the Sooke potholes, small nature tour in the forest) were well thought o...

Myself and my wife visited our son in Vancouver last month and have to say the highlight of our visit was a cycling tour of Vancouver Island.Paul picked us up at 6.30 a.m and until he dropped us off at 9.00pm it was sheer enjoyment. It rained that day but no one in party of three complained..We j...

Paul was great-we went on the tour on a relatively warmer day, be prepared to sweat (and be in shape). I like combining my fun (eating, wine, site seeing) with exercise. This was a nice blend of the two.. it also gets you away from Vancouver and you get to see Vancouver Island. Enjoy!
