First, meet your friendly local guide at Sports Rent BC and get fitted on the most comfortable bikes in the city. Next we'll go over safety precautions and introduce ourselves, don't worry, the guide will have a few icebreakers to calm the nerves. We find that one of the best parts of our tours is meeting other like-minded travelers from around the world. Before you know it, the calm ocean breeze will be on your cheeks as we cruise through Victoria's Downtown. We'll make our way out of the downtown core through the inner harbor and then to Fort Street. This is a longer portion of biking but it gives us the opportunity to get comfortable on the bikes while on a smooth designated bike path. It will lead to a major highlight of the city, Craigdarroch Castle. You'll have the opportunity to rest from the hill we just climbed while taking pictures and listening to the history of the magnificent piece of architecture. Once we've caught our breath, we'll whistle our way down the residential streets to Government House. Here we can take a stroll through the Victorian Rose Garden and snap a few more shots for the gram. This 36 acre estate was founded in 1865 and is the official residence of the lieutenant governor. The gardens will amaze you as the hidden corners are filled with surprises. Through a few more residential streets and you'll be in Beacon Hill Park, this city is nicknamed the City of Gardens for a reason. Try to find moss lady amongst the nature filled park, and if that's to difficult say hello to a friendly peacock instead. Then, from amongst the trees, you'll see the World's Tallest Free-Standing Totem Pole at 127 feet. Next is the fun downhill to the waters edge. Dallas road carries us along the waterfront to meet our favourite Canadian; the Terry Fox Memorial. Here you will learn of the inspirational story that continues to wow Canada and the World.

Mike was a great tour guide. Great history and fun information about Victoria. Biking felt safe and just the right amount of challenge. Fun time! Highly recommend

Nice tour with enthusiastic guide. Personally, I would have liked to dwell a little more on the sights instead of cycling through the suburbs for a large part.

Bobby was a knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. We had a wonderful time on our tour with him. We would recommend his tour to everyone.

Nice tour in a pleasant city! Well organized. The guide knows a lot to tell, sometimes it can even be a little less.
