The Victoria Group Rides are only 2 weeks away. Fingers crossed for good weather and no smoke.
Riders are arranged into two groups based on pace. The B group (moderate pace) will start all rides at 9 AM. The A group (fast pace) will start all rides at 9:15 AM.
Riders will be advised of the group they are in by email.
The starting point for all of our rides is the Dallas Road parking lot just East of the intersection of Dallas Road and Douglas Street in Beacon Hill Park. Click here for a map showing the starting point. Please note that the maximum allowed parking time is 3 hours. Therefore it is recommended that you cycle to the starting point rather than drive.
Following is the schedule and routes for all of the rides. Garmin Connect versions of these routes are also available.
- Thursday August 24th – Oceanfront / Lakeside Route. Click here for an alternate shorter route.
- Friday August 25th – Landsend Route. Click here for an alternate shorter route.
- Saturday August 26th – Saltspring Island Route. A shorter route is available by driving to Sydney and starting the ride there.
- Sunday August 27th – Metchosin / William Head / Pedar Bay Route. 1, 2, or 3 different loops depending on time available.
Many thanks to Lawrence Berg for providing us with so many interesting routes and for offering to lead us in exploring them.
Be aware that these are unsupported rides (no support vehicle) and therefore all participants must carry ample food, drinks, etc for their needs.
A waiver must be signed in order to participate in these rides. Please click here to access and complete the waiver. This waiver applies to all Killer Beez group rides for 2023 so if you have already signed it there is no need to sign it again.
Each rider is asked to contribute $15 to cover meals and ferry fees for our ride leaders plus other miscellaneous expenses. This will be collected in Victoria.
A dinner for all riders and their partners/spouses is being held at 5 PM on Friday, August 25th at Browns Social House, located at 809 Douglas Street. Please let us know in the comments section who and how many will be attending so we can advise the restaurant.
See you soon in Victoria.
