The road bike tour with David was the highlight of a recent trip to the island. David is an exceptional tour guide, has an incredible knowledge of bikes, and the road bikes in his fleet are incredibly fun to ride. I had considered simply renting a bike and riding around without a guide, using various apps, gps, etc. This is what I typically do...and it would have been a big mistake! There is nothing like local knowledge. David guided me on a fantastic 90km loop of the Saanich peninsula. We rode winding coastal roads, ducked onto smooth rolling lanes off the beaten path with very little traffic, stopped at some incredible viewpoints...and worked on some riding technique to top it all off. Had I gone ahead and ridden on my own, there is no way I would have found 1/10th of the incredible array of roads that David expertly strung together into one fantastic loop. Highly recommend and will be back!!!

I had a great day cycling the Munn Road Route with David from North 48 Cycles. He was so accommodating and the whole day was fantastic. The views were amazing and a mix of ocean road and inland cycling. The quality of bike was very good and it was fitted to me perfectly. I would highly recommend this tour as brilliant way to explore Vancouver Island. The gelato recommendation was also on point!!

Just completed an amazing 3 days of cycling around the Saanich peninsula with David Ley. This area is cycling heaven and David couldn’t be a better host, guide and cheerleader as we traversed this beautiful countryside. The Colnago bikes were perfect for the many hills that exist on the varied routes around Victoria. North 48 is also conveniently located next to a great brewpub for the post-ride re-hydration! Highly recommend North 48 for cyclists heading to Victoria and its awesome rides.

Had an assume time completing an 80 km ride with David. I have been competing in triathlons for several years and David was able to give me some helpful instructions on how to help turning when going downhill. From Michigan I don't get to practice this technique often. Thanks for a great time hope to visit again! Robert
