Free Pandora Bike Lane rides

Free educational rides in the new two-way protected bike lanes on Pandora Avenue

    The Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society is excited to be working with the City of Victoria to provide free educational rides through the city’s first two-way protected bike lanes on Pandora Avenue.

    The two-way protected bike lane facility along Pandora Avenue is the first of its kind in Greater Victoria.  The free educational rides aim to familiarize cyclists with the facility, to increase comfort when using the facility, and to encourage use while reducing confusion or misuse.

 

These one-hour orientation rides focus on changes that cyclists need to be aware of including:

  • new signage
  • new designated bike signals
  • new turning movements to enter and exit the facility

The rides begin with a short orientation presentation at Centennial Square followed by a small group ride through the Cycletrack along Pandora Ave.

Rides feature:

  • experienced instructors
  • small group sizes (maximum of 6 people per instructor)
  • a relaxed pace
  • plenty of opportunity for questions during practice

Rides are scheduled for May, June, and September.  To reserve your spot in an upcoming ride, or to check out the schedule of upcoming rides, click ‘Book Now’ to visit our booking page.
