It's about you and your perfectly joyful experience

When you take the time to slow down, notice the small things, try something new, and maybe even get silly - this is when memories are created. At Island Joy Rides, we’ve designed simple, yet luxurious cycling tours that connect you with the people, the food, and the places that make our region so spectacular. Whether you choose to join us for an afternoon or six days, our goal is to help you discover the beauty of Vancouver Island - and perhaps learn a little more about yourself along the way.
