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.

    Another great mid-week ride in pretty kind weather for January. And another great chili at Red Barn! We had 12 in the main group and 5 in the STR ride. It is great to able to give people a choice of ride .Thanks to Sam and Linda for sweeping on the main ride and Norah for leading the STR ride. We'll have another set of walkie talkies by the time the STR rides need them come the spring. Thanks to everyone who came out.

    I'd love to join on the Red Barn Interurban ride but I have an appointment at 3 pm to get to. Any idea how long this ride will be? Can we start earlier perhaps?

      Your message got here after we had already departed so - can't help you! The weekend rides start at 9 - 10 am. The mid week is later to give some of use who are self employed a few hours time to work i nthe morning. And they are shorter than the weekend rides so we are still home before dark.
