Chef on a Bike

Local food, drinks, cycling, friends, laughter, learning. At Island Joy Rides, we find joy in bringing together simple, yet sophisticated concepts to celebrate the abundance of natural and cultural diversity in the Comox Valley. In July 2016, we introduced a unique one-day tour ‘Chef on a Bike’, and because of the positive feedback we received, we are thrilled to host two unique and immersive ‘Chef on a Bike’ tours in 2017.
