Neighbourhood Rides

The GVCC has been organizing recreational and themed rides for almost three decades and normally we’d be announcing our 2020 ride schedule but due to COVID-19, we are pausing our regular rides program for this year.

New rides NOW Available (See June 6th series below)!

Take a ride!

Getting out on your bike is key, so we’re proud to announce our new Neighbourhood Scavenger Hunts, Discovery Rides, and ‘Ride the Distance‘ routes.

  1. Choose a Ride
  2. Tell us about your ride by sharing your photos, stories or videos on social media and tagging @gvccbc or @biketoworkvic #yyjbike, and by filling out the form at the bottom of this page.
  3. WIN prizes to local restaurants and bike shops! Submissions for prizes will be due on the last day of the activity date posted below. However, these activities aren’t going anywhere – so enjoy them anytime this summer!

Highlands Discovery Ride

Welcome to the Highlands Discovery Ride! Enjoy a trek through rural winding roads beginning on West Saanich Road and ending on the Galloping Goose. 

Note: These roads can be challenging for less experienced cyclists, as they include large hill climbs and winding roads. Ensure your bike, and your brakes especially, are in good working order before taking part in one of our longer Discovery Rides in this rural gem of Greater Victoria.

Fernwood Discovery Ride

Take a ride along the quiet vibrant streets of Fernwood. This scavenger hunt will have you searching high and low for all sorts of natural, historical and cultural gems in this neighbourhood. The history of Fernwood is rich, don’t miss out on this one!

June 19th – June 30th, 2020:
