Route and destination to be determined by the participants, so bring your ideas! We will aim to be back by 3 or so. sending you too many emails? (Click for instructions to turn them off)

CHANGE TO PROCEDURES! Victoria Cycling Adventures Club (VCAC) has been created as an umbrella society for this meetup group in order that we be able to provide you with ride insurance. You are covered by this insurance on your first ride with us, but for subsequent rides, you must join the VCAC. The annual fee is $5, payable at your next ride. Visit the new VCAC website to find out all about it and to become a member:


Before attending a ride with Victoria Cycling Adventures please 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. If this is your first ride with us, please print, sign and bring with you a copy of the 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.

    Good company, great route, beautiful scenery and weather. We covered a lot of ground, a few big hills, and crossed the new bridge at Gorge and Craigflower. Awesome!

      Yes, he was sitting right on the corner by Econo Lodge, he waved to me, and he said I waved back (but I was waving to my people who were still in the intersection, so they'd know I was waiting for them). He thought I'd seen him, but I didn't. What a hoot!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
