We did not do a tour but instead decided to rent bikes and follow our own route. A staff member helped us decide our route on a map they provided, going through Chinatown and coming down and returning along the water. Victoria has many bike lanes, making it easy to navigate the city. Staff were very helpful in general, adjusting the bikes to our needs. I would strongly recommend this shop whether you are interested in a tour or just renting bikes to enjoy on your own.

We did the Coastal E-Bike Tour with Ian. He was fun, friendly, and knowledgeable about the city. Beautiful views and got to explore places we otherwise wouldn’t have discovered! Would highly recommend!

Had a great time! Our fishing charter cancelled on us so we were looking for something else to do. We didn’t all originally agree on a bike tour but in the end everyone thoroughly enjoyed it, some even said it was their favorite thing we did. Great guides that had some really interesting information & kept our kids on their toes. All around a very friendly and helpful shop, not many places are like this anymore!

Victoria, British Columbia is filled with lush forests and greenery, well maintained cycle paths along the coast and dream houses galore. Touring the city by bike is a great option –provided that the bike is in good operating condition. My friend and I rented e-bikes for the Apple Cider Tour (which is no longer listed as a tour option), unfortunately the electrical power on one bike was completely inoperable and the other bike functioned with reduced power. The instructor’s advice throughout the tour to both of us was to “change gears”. Though there were rest beaks, the overall ride distance was considerably longer than what we were told initially which was made worse by the fact that the bikes had no power despite showing as having full battery life. As we neared our destination I asked what the Plan B was, in case someone was injured or fatigued and unable to cycle back to the store. Our instructor advised that he would simply call the store and they would send a van to pick us up and carry the bikes too. After lunch we switched bikes – the instructor took the bike with the broken battery, and began riding back to the store. Since our original bikes had not been working we were just too exhausted and could not cycle any further. The instructor began making phone calls and I thought help was on the way. Instead, we walked our bikes to a nearby coffee shop – he called a taxi for us. My friend and I returned to the store at our own expense, approximately $45. You need to know that there is no Plan B, no rescue van and apparently no refunds for renting broken bikes.

Our friends from Toronto rented e-bikes in July so they could join us on a ride from Victoria to Sidney. En route, the handle bars on one e-bike suddenly rolled forward, pitching our friend onto the crossbar. Luckily he managed to stay upright and we were on a quiet road. We had a tool and secured the handlebars for the rest of the ride. When our friends returned the bikes, the response of fellow in the shop was "That's unfortunate." No inquiry as to whether our friend was all right, and no offer to refund the rental fee, although clearly the bike left the shop in an unsafe condition that could have resulted in a much more tragic outcome. Beware.
