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!

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!
