The Monday Night Gentlemen’s Ride will depart from the Oak Bay Bikes parking lot (1990 Oak Bay Ave) at 6:15pm.
These rides are designed to be a social spin – and riders should be able to maintain a 24-27km/hr average yet “conversational” pace. The route will vary from week to week, but a 40-60kms ride can be expected.
Some group riding experience is good, but not mandatory. The Victoria Wheelers adhere to no-drop policy with the occasional “sprint”, hill climb or short gravel/dirt section followed by a re-grouping point.
The rides are meant to showcase some of Victoria’s best roads – waterfront, deep forest, farmland and urban areas. Hopefully, our riders will learn some new routes to keep the riding fresh!
The Fernwood Inn has once again graciously offered up some patio space for post ride beverages, snacks and meals – bring along a few dollars and enjoy the best chicken wings in town! Please bring adequate front & rear lights to ensure a safe ride home.
