Vancouver Island Cycling Experiences
Explore. Connect. Feel like a kid again. Indulge. FInd joy and exhilaration. Experience Vancouver Island through its people and culture. Hop aboard a bicycle...you will be amazed where it takes you.
Island Joy RIdes is a boutique, active travel company owned and operated by people who believe that the best way to experience an area is from the seat of a bicycle. We combine great cycling with local culture, food, wine and fun to create a holiday experience you simply can't design on your own.
Our team invites you to join us on our guided, self-guided, day, combo, multi-day, or private cycling experiences on spectacularly beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Connect with our west coast home through secret biking trails, wineries, farms, cafes, artists and First Nations cultural sites of the Comox Valley, Campbell River, Quadra and Denman Islands.
We are much more than just a bike tour...
- Connect with locals and like-minded cyclers through adventure, music, art, beach fires and other cultural experiences
- Savour gourmet food and wine, fresh from farms and family run vineyards
- Feel exhilaration of riding along the coast on quiet back roads at your own pace (with extra route options) - no matter what your age or fitness level
Our Vancouver Island bike tours are categorized as:
If you're looking for a tour that caters to you or your group then a custom tour is the best option. Whether you want a day, multi-day guided, self-guided or combination of the two, let us personalize a bike tour for your special group – big or small. You tell us what you would like and we take care of the details.
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.
Island Joy Rides combines bicycling, pampering and West Coast culture in our high quality Vancouver Island tours. All of our Joyrides are self-paced, fully supported and designed to let you fully experience our area in the best way possible - up close and personal.
