This is a great guided road bike tour to energize the legs after a day of travelling and to get your bike fit dialed in. It can be easily modified for time and distance, and if it’s just a slow, scenic spin you’re after, there are no end of side roads down which we can find exquisite ocean and coastline views. If we get to Mattick’s Farm with energy and time (and gels) to spare, we can ride off into the Saanich farmland, or just head back to Victoria.

Munn Road

Our guided road bike tour through the District of Highlands will include a trip up Munn Road, loved by some, detested by others, begrudgingly tolerated by the rest of us. The climb is 8.5 km long, climbs a total of 235 m and has an average grade of 3%. Our bikes are equipped with a low range of 34×28, so plenty of easy pedaling. The reward is a fabulous descent and a spin through beautiful northern deciduous rainforest along the winding, rolling Ross Durance Road. It’s narrow and twisty, but a heap of fun. From there, we head over to Matticks Farm and return to Victoria via the beautiful Waterfront Route.

Distance: 70 km
Elevation Gain: 1090 m
Terrain: Rolling, hilly
Difficulty: Moderate to Difficult

A full on day on a guided road bike tour of the District of Highlands includes a trip up Munn Road. On the north side of Munn Road, we wind around Caleb Pike and back up to Millstream Lake Road for a spin through Ross Durance Road. From there we take a trip down to the water on Willis Point Road – fast, winding and steep – fun on the way down, hard on the way up! From Willis Point we head over to Elk Lake and Matticks Farm and return to Victoria via the beautiful Waterfront Route.

Make no mistake, this is a tough day out!
