My husband and I decided we wanted to try a multi day cycling tour and after some research decided on the spectacular West Kootenays. John from Kootenay Cycling was great to arrange our bike and gear rentals with. He was knowledgeable about the area and provided some cues for scenic stops along the way. Thanks again for supporting our ride

My daughter and I decided to give Kootenay Cycling Adventures a try for a morning's activities. It was a great choice. We chose the electric bikes and cruised our way to the bakery where we enjoyed a scromptious cinnamon bun. The ride was scenic and quiet - not much traffic at all. The best feature of the trip, though, was the host/owner, John. He made sure we were at ease with the operation of the electric bikes and was a great conversationalist throughout the run. We enjoyed the trip so much, we decided to participate in a multi-day ride next year. We highly recommend Kootenay Cycling Adventures.

Thank you for your review! I'm glad you were able to experience the "Bun Run" on our new electric bicycles and taste the mouthwatering cinnamon buns at the other end. It's a great teaser for our multi-day West Koot Loop! John

Just finished a great 3 day cycling trip. John was an excellent guide and I am very grateful for his recommendation of an Ebike for me. I was cycling with my husband and daughter who are both experienced cyclists so it was fun to be able to keep up with them but still have the option to physically challenge myself if I really wanted to. The latter was a necessity given all the delicious snacks and meals provided on the tour. Thank you John for giving me a new motivation to travel by bike. I would highly recommend this tour plus using an Ebike if you are at all worried about your fitness level or cycling experience.

We had a great time with John and Kootenay cycling adventures. It was a challenging ride, well organised and John was a great guide. He made everything easy and went the extra mile to make our time on and off the bike a great experience.

We had a great three days cycling around the Kootenays with John. Everything was very well organised, the bikes were great. The scenery is beautiful and the riding is good - enough for a good challenge but also easy enough that any relatively fit cyclist can do it. Plenty of water and good food. Definitely a great way to see an area in Canada that is not overrun with tourists but still beautiful. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for your kind review Grace! It was a pleasure to support you on the West Koot Loop tour. I'm glad that you were able to take advantage of the "bonus lap" on each day to ride a little more. Thanks again for joining us! John
