Great bike rides on Vancouver island!
Days Inn Victoria on the Harbour
July 12, 2017
It may feel like summer just started, but blink and it will pass you by! Make the most of it with a trip to Victoria to experience the gorgeous weather, the historic city, and the all around good vibes of our fair berg. Even better, why not rent a bike downtown and then go on a ride around the coast of the island? Here are some of our favourite trails.
THE GALLOPING GOOSE
We could hardly get away listing the best bike routes in Victoria without listing the
. Over 60 km of paved trail that makes it a perfect fit for biking families, you can go all the way from Victoria to the Sooke potholes on this ride! Rows of trees along the trail make for dappled, easy light, meaning you won’t get overheated. It’s just a fantastic trail all around. Highly recommended.
SEASIDE TOURING ROUTE
A 39 km round trip that encircles Victoria, going through James Bay, Oak Bay and Cadboro Bay, the
Seaside Touring Route
is a great way to see all that Victoria has to offer. For most of this ride, you do share the road with motorists, but Victoria is extremely bike friendly. In fact, I’d argue that biking is the best way to experience the pace of the city!
TOUR DE VICTORIA
Inspired by the Tour de France, the
Tour de Victoria
was created by competitive rider Ryan Hesjedal who once placed sixth in that world famous contest! This race has three categories depending on your level of experience: a 45 km ride for the entry level cyclist, a 90 km ride for the enthusiast, and a 140 km ride for the true bicycling pro (or masochist!). Taking place on August 20, this race raises money for the Ryder’s Cycling Society of Canada.
There’s no better place to start your island rides that the Days Inn Victoria on the Harbour.
