The Trails, Food & Wine tour is an invigorating 75-kilometre bike ride that winds its way through the Greater Victoria region. With trails including the Galloping Goose, Lochside and the Interurban Rail Trail, Trails, Food & Wine isn’t for everyone.

Those brave enough to tackle the tour will enjoy a professionally-guided trip to area farms, a winery, a local food lunch at Nourish Café & Bistro and a visit to the Victoria Spirits distillery.

  • Where: Meet at 810 Humboldt Street in Victoria and be prepared to sign a waiver.
