I have been passively cycling my whole life, but after a work related bike tour of new zealand things rapidly progressed. cycling is the ideal tool for exploration and discovery. i raced cyclocross for many years, but realized that my true love of cycling is best represented by long days in the saddle, exploring, discovering, ideally with a few good treat breaks and a good spot for a swim.

Wow! What a fun way to see and get to know the island! We covered a good amount of ground and saw places we wouldn’t have found on our own! Dylan knows the island SO WELL and all the best stops along the way- eating, drinking swim spots, etc. Highly recommend. Thanks for a FUN day, Dylan!!

Dylan was great. We booked 6 of us short notice and he was able to accommodate us. He was very patient and had a lot of fantastic tips for us first timers to the island. We would definitely recommend him

This experience cycling on Salt Spring Island felt unique and special — Dylan shared personal stories and insights about Salt Spring Island making it a truly great experience. He was punctual, very helpful with my bike set up and friendly. I was able to feel immersed in a community and learn about things that matter to me - like farm to table eating options, special routes around the island and stories that relate to the community. I truly enjoyed chatting with him, trying some popsicles at the farm stand and exploring around the island. Overall I had a wonderful experience with Dylan and feel that I connected with him — I think anyone could connect with him on this experience and have a great time discovering scenic routes! The only thing is I wish I could have stayed on the island a bit longer, to try more local eateries and visit more beaches. Looking forward to the next visit and ride with Dylan!
