We were in Courtenay visiting family and wanted an activity that wouldn’t take us away from our visit for too long. The Friday afternoon Wine & Chocolate tour was perfect for us. Our guides Laurel and Sonya were so pleasant and fun to ride with and they engaged everyone in our small group in conversation along the way. The Norco bikes and equipment were in top-notch condition and perfectly fitted for everyone. I would highly recommend this activity if you are into biking.

My partner and I recently traveled to Vancouver Island for the first time and wanted to do a couple of days of biking. Kim spent so much time working with us in advance to plan the perfect trip for us. Laurel met us the first morning and had lots of yummy treats for the day! Our guides were excellent both days! We ended up biking all around Campbell River and Quarda Island. The scenery was breathtaking. Our whole experience was wonderful and I would recommend them to anyone looking to cycle in that area.

We had the best adventure bike ride with Island Joy Rides. We chose a self-guided trip so Laurel and her crew gave us all the maps, information and tips we needed to explore the island on our own. They had great recommendations for sites to see, places to eat, etc. They transported our luggage for us and the inns they chose were excellent. We saw lots of things we had never seen before. We got to appreciate the scenery, history and culture of Vancouver Island. It was challenging but so worth it. It was a great accomplishment and will be an unforgettable experience for us.

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.
