This was a fun little 23km cycling tour with some interesting stops interspersed with leisurely cycling near Courtenay with some meandering through farm land, across bridges and through some quaint neighbourhoods with delightful stops at a Vineyard, a distillery and a shop selling custom made chocolates. Island Joy rides is a class act with good equipment.

This was a fantastic self-guided tour. Laurel designed a great self-guided route and provided both paper and eguides to help us along the way. The communications from Laurel was timely and clear. The hotels were very comfortable and well situated. Our favourite memories are river tubing in Courtenay, the trail on Quadra Island from Smokey's bike shop, fish tacos on Quadra (at the ferry dock) and kayaking in Campbell River with Laurel.

Laurel has put together a great route through some beautiful countryside and along the coastline which was varied and interesting. Her "Joy book" is so creative and informative and had some fantastic recommendations for places to stop for sightseeing, picnicking and food. The photo contest she suggests for each day made our trip even more fun and memorable. We have done several bike tours in Italy and France and this was a fantastic Canadian version. A great trip all around.

I was with a group of 5 and we did a 5 night, 6 day bike trip all around the Courtney,Comox ,Campbell River and adjoining Islands. The places we stayed at were incredible and the food at these plays was exceptional. The bikes were the best quality I have had on any bike trip as well. Laurel did a great job of taking care of us including a kayaking adventure compete with wine and desert on the last night.
