Guided Bike Tours

Island Joy Rides combines supported bicycling, West Coast culture and local food/wine in our high quality Vancouver Island tours.

Self Guided Bike Tours

Our Self Guided Bike Tours offer a balance of support and freedom to explore. Your bikes, accommodations, and luggage transfers are arranged, and a route and day-by-day itinerary are planned. Self-guided bike tours have more flexibility in your daily schedule but both guided and self-guided provide experiences you don’t get from the window of a train or rental car.

Our Guests Say...

The Quadra tour was amazing.  It really was the perfect day!  Great food, fun group of riders, sunshine made it even better!  Having the tour made it interesting.  Rebecca Spit was awesome.  Forgot how nice it is there.
