Any nice biking route suggestions from Victoria?

We are travelling to Victoria tomorrow for a long weekend. My husband and and are avid bikers, generally road biking, but we do a bit of montain biking also.

We are thinking of renting some bikes and would really like to take a a part of the day biking. Firstly where is the best place to rent bikes and secondly where is best to ride these.

i have seen that you can ride to Sidney by the Sea on some type of rail trail and I have also heard of the Galloping Goose Trail but not sure where you can access these trails from Victoria.

Any info would be appreciated. Also what is the weather like at the minute I saw from a previous post that it may be cold!!

http://www.crd.bc.ca/parks/lochside/ north onto the Saanich peninsula

I think this is the biggest company but there are a number right downtown

Selkirk Station is a local favorite, on their web page there is also a link to Switch Bridge Tours..

The Goose to the West is a favorite, most City Transit busses provide bike carries in the front.. you can cycle out and bus back if too pooped!


This Gov't site might also give You some ideas

We rode the Lochside Trail in May from the ferry into Victoria and really enjoyed the trip, but its very tame, so as you state you are avid cyclists, not sure if you are looking for something a bit more challenging. The link Sam provided above has very comprehensive information and specific instructions for riding the trail.
