Scooter/moped rental and day trip suggestions

Taking my girlfriend to Victoria for a weekned in late May. It's her birthday, so I want to do something fun. Was thinking that renting a scooter/moped and checking out some sights would be a good way to show her Victoria in a day. Can anyone suggest some routes for an easy day trip?

Thanks!

Beach Drive with stops at Cattle Point, Gonzales Beach, Willows Beach, Mount Douglas, and Mount Tolmie.

Picnic lunch at Willows Beach with fish and chips from Willows Fish and Chips. (have to be creative to get the lunch from the shop to the beach lol.

I added a loop though Esquimalt too.

the mopeds guys will give you a route. I do this pretty often. Aloong the water thru Oak Bay and up to a viewpoint. Its a lot of fun and you can spend all day by stopping a bit.

I' d suggest after zipping up Mt Doug that you continue northward on Cordova Bay Road.. another great beach for a stroll or head a bit further to Mattick's Farm ( not really a farm! ) Adrienne's has ice cream with homemade waffle cones. ..

For a return route I'd suggest you back track to Royal Oak Drive and Cordova Bay Road and take Blenkinsop to McKenzie, then hook up with the above route... Blenkinsop Valley is mostly agricultural based,there is a fun spot to stop and play mini golf.. or hit a bucket of balls at the driving range.
