What we're about

Welcome to the Victoria E-bike Group! We are a group that loves to cycle and loves our electric bikes!
We offer a variety of rides in distance, pace, time of day and location. Our hope is that there are rides that appeal to everyone!

Our focus is on everyone’s enjoyment by being flexible, enjoying life on 2 wheels, laughing, mingling and having fun while being conscientious of our safety as well as all of those around you. Feel free to PM us with any route suggestions. Exploring new places is always an adventure! Minimum yearly donation of $5.00 is payable upon joining and collected every July thereafter.

Everyone’s speed should be at their own comfort level. To accommodate this some rides will have a pace indicated as follows:
Pace 1. average pace 20-23kph 
Pace 2. average pace 23-25kph
Pace 3. average pace 25+kph
For rides that do not indicate a pace, we will have someone be a “sweeper”. This person will know the route and stay at the end of the line to make sure everyone arrives safely.

Please check your battery level and tire pressure before each ride and have a back up plan if you get a flat etc.

We look forward to riding with you!
