Vancouver Island Cycling Tours
Engage. Disconnect. Feel like a kid again. Invigorate. Savour. Escape. Hop aboard a bicycle...you'll be amazed where it takes you.
Island Joy Rides is a boutique, active travel company owned and operated by locals who believe that the best way to experience an area is from the seat of a bicycle.
EXPLORE our west coast home as you cycle carefully designed routes in the Comox Valley, Campbell River, and Quadra/Denman/Hornby Islands.
CONNECT with nature, locals, and like-minded cyclers through a variety of unique west coast adventures including kayaking, First Nations canoeing, chartered sea shuttles, beach fires with local music, and seaside feasts.
INDLUGE your senses as you experience our area through local food and wine, scenic coastal and forest routes, quiet moments, and engaging guides.
OUR GOAL is to offer our guests a unique and engaging Vancouver Island experience.
Our Vancouver Island Bike Tours
Island Joy Rides combines supported bicycling, West Coast culture and local food/wine in our high quality Vancouver Island tours. Choose from fully supported, deluxe, all-inclusive tours for those who want to be taken care of or more casual cycling experiences for those who just want to ride and enjoy the benefits a planned tour can offer.
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.
