Bust out the bike helmet — it’s time to two-wheel with The Pedaler, Victoria’s newest cycling crew. Set to explore the city’s winding Galloping Goose and Lochside trails, distinctive neighbourhoods, breathtaking vistas and burgeoning local food and beverage scene, these guided tours — the only ones of their kind in the city — are sure to be anything but ordinary.
During the Beans and Bites excursion, for example, you’ll feel an added jolt of adrenalin, thanks to a scenic ride to local shops that reward with delectable baked goods and a few cups of joe. Like beer?
Then the Hoppy Hour pedal is sure to please with sips of locally crafted brews between spirited cycles (not to worry if you find a few favourites along the way; your guides can pack your beer purchases on their two-wheeled steeds).
For a final excursion, the Castles, Hoods and Legends exploration weaves through the city’s historic haunts, taking in an iconic castle, stately mansions and the tallest totem pole on the planet in this the province’s capital. All journeys sure to have you geared up.
