Suffering from the backyard blahs? Got an itch to see something exciting and a bike that’s pining for adventure? Why not take your next bike trip right here on Vancouver Island, and explore the trail network of the Saanich Peninsula.
Rob Fawcett of Fawcett & Company Cycling Expeditions recently took clients, that were staying at Villa Marco Polo Inn, on a ride up to the Saanich Pennisula stopping at Victoria Gin and Spirits. They offer a range of day or week long bike trips, all geared towards exploring new trails and having a great time on your bike! Each day group tour comes with a professional guide, high-quality 29er bike rental, a garden fresh meal, and free admission to the beautiful Glendale Gardens.
A word from Rob Fawcett owner of Fawcett & Company:
“Victoria Spirits is one of the many gems we have in striking distance of Victoria by day trip on a bike. The Saanich Peninsula is well known to locals for the incredible cycling it offers, both for road and mountain biking. However many are unaware of the budding food and drink culture that is sprouting up all around them. Victoria Spirits, slightly off the beaten path on Old West Saanich Road, is Vancouver Island at is finest; quirky, family run business full of unique and charismatic characters that makes bringing guests there a pleasure.”
See what others are saying about Victoria Gin:
“I don’t usually, well, ever, drink gin straight, but I think I’d consider doing it with this. The flavour is complex, but lacks any harshness and even has a floral finishing note that recalls the best thing about a good grappa.”
