What you'll do

The Saanich Peninsula guided road bike tour includes beautiful ocean views, with rolling roads winding through pleasant farmlands, past vineyards and home studios, and offers exquisite valley views.

This ride will include some short, steep hills but don't let a little hill stop you from enjoying this ride. Everyone will go at their own pace and stop and regroup if need be. We will have up to 2 full hours of riding time.

The safety and enjoyment of the guests are paramount to VeloGuide. We will always regroup and if we have larger groups, we will add additional VeloGuides so that each guest can get the most out of the ride.

My name is Jillian, one of the co-founders of VeloGuide which was launched in October 2017 as a bold new initiative to connect the traveling cyclist with a bike and a guide all across the globe.

We understand that when visiting a big city, getting out on a road bike ride can be overwhelming. Traffic, safe routes, fear of getting lost and finding a bike can make the idea a non-starter. David or one of our other awesome local VeloGuides will take all the guesswork out of it and you will truly be able to #ridelikealocal. Their local knowledge of Victoria and love of cycling make this experience unique!

VeloGuide was formally launched in October 2017 as a bold new initiative to connect the travelling cyclist with a bike and a guide all across the globe. We are excited to be part of the Airbnb experiences community.

A great ride along the beautiful waterfront of Victoria. Veloguides Barry, Peter and Grant are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and experienced riders who ensure everyone is safe and enjoying themselves. They can tailor a ride to any level, from novice to advanced, highly recommended for anyone who wants to actively explore Victoria and area by bike :)

Grant, Pete & Barry are clearly passionate & competent with all styles of cycling & etiquette. They are safety-oriented making sure it is covered at the introduction &, during the ride, unobtrusively ensuring everyone in the group is comfortable. Victoria sells itself but these folks have inside knowledge for off-the-beaten-path spots. If you know what you want they will take you on a an amazing adventure; if you don’t know what you want they assess your ability, inquire about your interests, & take you on an amazing adventure.

Did a tour of downtown Victoria and along the waterfront. The guides Barry and Pete were such nice guys. They guided us through side streets and pointed out unique things around Victoria. Had coffee at a hidden bike friendly coffee shop. This place had hooks to hang the bikes and even a pump!! Really enjoyed this ride and wouldn't have been able to do this without these guides.
