Before attending a ride with Victoria Cycling Adventures I will complete the general Cycling Safety Quiz and the Meetup Procedures Quiz.

By attending this ride, I declare that I have read, understood and agree to the contents of Victoria Cycling Adventures Waiver and Policies and Procedures.

For your safety we will break the ride into smaller groups while on busy roads. Please familiarize yourself with our Cycling procedures for large groups.

If this is your first ride with us, please print, sign and bring with you a copy of our waiver.

In case of bad weather, we will reschedule this ride and substitute an Embrace The Rain Ride in its place. Hey - we live in a rain forest, its gonna rain! Let's learn to enjoy it. This will be a short ride in town with a stop to warm up and dry out.

    Unofficially three hardy riders blazed around the course in 2hrs and 20 minutes reaching speeds of over 55kph despite some excitement of snow and black ice on Munn Rd. Of course these are all just rumours because officially this never happened :-)

      "snow and black ice on Munn Rd.". I was worried about that. It was the right decision to cancel then. Glad no one had an accident on it.

      Seems I was 10 to 15 minutes behind you three. Tried to catch up but failed though I too did the route in under 2:30.

    Doesn't look like we got any snow, and I still have 5 pounds from Christmas left to work off, so I'm unofficially going to go anyway. I can't think of any coffee spots anywhere near the halfway point so I'll likely just zip around this non-stop for exercise. Moving at a reasonable clip equals warmth :-) I'll drop by Fantastico at 10am on the way out so see if anyone else is interested in doing the ride that way

    Interested in doing this ride starting at noon if anyone else would like to join me. Might be a 'bit' warmer by then.

    I might end up moving this to Sunday if the long range weather forecast pans out:

    May put it back a couple of weeks if the cold and snow extends to Sunday.
