Myself and my wife had a fabulous 4 days cycling with Laurel and the team. Everything was covered off with such detail and the hotels/food was great. Thank you Laurel, Richard, John, Chris and Sonya for making our tour so memorable.

We so enjoyed our bike trip. The guides were fabulous. The bikes were good. The biking was the right combination of beauty, culture and activity.
Be happy, go bike with island Joy Rides!

PS Almost forgot, the seafood, wine and chocolate is amazing too.

Our family of five (the youngest aged twelve) have just completed 4 days of riding in the Courtenay and Campbell River area. We made the trip as a "self guided" tour but had great directions (clue cards) and maps provided. And we never felt alone with small greetings from the office along the way. Quality of lodging was very good and as goes for the riding our favorites were for sure Quadra Island and a nice back wind ride back to Courtenay from Campbell River. We can only give our best recommendations - this is really a "must do" thing

A hint : bring along your GPS (Garmin or alike) and your smart phone in case you feel the need tp double check your position. It is also fun afterwards to track your completed efforts.

We just completed a 3 day bike trip with Island Joy Rides. They were very well organized....3 guides helping 9 guests...a leader, a trailer and a van driver. They were great people to bike with...both guides and guests...and the guides clearly enjoyed their job and focused on all of us having an excellent experience. The places we covered were very interesting and for those who wanted an extra challenge there was always an alternative. Our group was diverse...from Colorado to the North West Territories...Alberta, BC and Ontario....and were interesting fun loving people to spend three days with. The bikes worked well and they provided snacks, lunch and a great wrap-up dinner. I would highly recommend their tours.
