The Joy of Cycling

We get it. We understand that traveling is so much more than merely seeing the sights. It's about connecting with locals, savouring locally-sourced food and wine, trying new things, immersing yourself in a new culture. That's what our Vancouver Island, BC based boutique cycling tours are all about. Whether you choose to join us for an afternoon or six days, our goal is to help you discover the special things about our area...and perhaps even learn something new about yourself.
