We did the Butchart Bike Tour which involves getting a bus to the Gardens where they leave you with your entrance ticket and a bike. Its up to you to get back to Victoria! This option was great because we were on our own schedule. The bike back to Victoria was probably one of the loveliest ones I've taken and a really unexpected delight on a beautiful summer day. We were provided with a good sized pack that attached to the back of each bike so we had plenty of room for camera and a picnic lunch. It is almost 30 miles back to Victoria and we added about a mile loop at the recommendation of our driver and it was so worth it. Coastline, farms, woods, gravel paths, boardwalks, residential areas and finally back into downtown. Minimal time sharing the road with vehicles. We kept the bikes for the full 24 hrs-so glad because it was a great way to circle down by the breakwater and see the park (really big surprise!). Definitely do this in Victoria.
