About Us

Island Joy Rides:  Celebrating 5 years!

Island Joy Rides has been an active travel company on Vancouver Island for five years (time does fly when you're having fun).  Originally inspired by writing down 10 things that made me 'come alive' (thank you Jonathan Fields and his book Career Renegade), we continue to be motivated by sharing our love for cycling, the local food scene, island culture, and tasty beverages.  Island Joy Rides is a passion-turned-business that allows us to connect with visitors, support farms, encourage active living, and ride my bike!  The team expands and evolves every year as we welcome keen and enthusiastic cycling guides who want to provide our guests with remarkable and joyful experiences.
