Come Ride With Us!

Registration is now closed.  If you wish to participate, you can register at Sea Cider, cash only, on Ride-morning between 7:30-8:15am.  Please note, this event is capped at 200 riders.

Join us for the inaugural MEC Victoria 100k & 50k Ride this fall. This event will showcase the beauty and splendor of fall in the lower Vancouver Island. The ride will be a open road loop starting and ending at Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse. 
 
Start Times:
Both rides will start at 8:30am
Your $35 entry fee will include:
  • aid stations along the course with food, water, and basic mechanical assistance
  • chase vehicle to assist with major mechanical issues
  • first-aid attendants along the route
  • food and drink at the end of the ride at picturesque Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse

The route will be open to other users, so we advise that you use caution while out on the road. Riders will need to be self-sufficient along the ride: packing appropriate clothing for the day, a spare tube, pump and patch kit (in case you get a flat between aid stations), and food and water if you feel you'll need extra nourishment between aid stations.

There will be bike parking at Sea Cider, and appropriate numbering so that the rider and bike go home together.

Our in-house mechanics will be available for any last minute tweaking, as well as a mechanic on course in the chase vehicle.

To best prepare for the maintenance of a long ride, join us for our FREE Bike Maintenance 101 including How to Change a Flat, Know your Bike, Touring, and Accessorize your Bike.  If you are familiar with the basics, we offer Bike Maintenance 201 clinics for $20 which include The Drivetrain, Derailleurs, and Brakes.
