Welcome to Victoria, the cycling capital of Canada.
With an expanding network of trails, rural routes and urban roads with bike lanes, it’s no wonder thousands of cyclists hit the road every day. In fact, Victoria boasts more cyclists per capita than any other Canadian city.
The Galloping Goose Trail and Seaside Touring Route are popular places to bike and are perfect for casual cyclists and families. The Saanich Peninsula and the West Shore offer great rides for roadies.
Enjoy biking events? Do the Tour de Victoria, a mass participation cycling event founded by Ryder Hesjedal, a Victoria-raised professional cyclist who placed sixth in the 2010 Tour de France. Want to watch the pros race? Check out the Bastion Grand Prix in May.
Mountain bikers can ride 50-plus trails at Mount Work, just outside Victoria. Vancouver Island is also home to many other great mountain biking and cycling routes.
