Sure to have fun

"A full day, with pck up At 7.30am, to catch the ferry at 9am (1.5 hour crossing). Then we set off for a good ride through to lunchtime. Paul ( our guide) is hugely personalable, and makes spending time 'with a stranger' very easy. He's knowledgeable about the area, and the region and explains various aspects of the route throughout the day. After the lunch stop at a hearty but relaxed restaurant stop ( with gift shops on site), you then head off alongside beaver and elk river and onwards to either the vineyard or cider tasting. You're cycling for about 50-60k, in the saddle maybe 3.5 or 4 hours I think, so you need a good level of fitness to enjoy this day. Return ferry departs at 5pm. There are full facilities on the ferry. Lots of fun and highly recommend. All in all the day is about 12 hours. Great value for money, and Paul was an excellent host and guide."

Great multi day Tour of BC

"This was a great taste of some of the best of BC via bike. Paul and his crew were great at taking care of our small group of riders. Great food. Great views. Really great people. Oh my gosh, the views from the rides were amazing and Paul has hand picked the routes, the accommodations and the food.

This is an "everyman" tour that most people who are reasonablly fit can do and enjoy. If you're looking for a training camp or a posh vacations with castles, this isn't for you. But if you are looking to really take in the scenery, smell the fresh air, have a good time and chat with new friends, this is your tour.

Paul has something unique and special here. I look forward to see how he grows this tour and his company. I wish him the best. I would definitely do another tour with him.

Fabulous trip to Lynn Canyon and pitt Meadows cycle

 "We had a great trip with Paul. He is likeable, friendly, and gregarious....just perfect to lead a trip. He coordinated with information well beforehand with directions on how to meet up and we were picked up promptly. A short drive to Lynn Canyon and the suspension bridge and then a gentle stroll through the forest where some saw a bear inthe distance! Paul carries bear spray just in case! There are some steps to go up at 2 stages in the walk otherwise easy walking. A drive to Pitt Meadows followed with a lovely selction of salads and cold meats to make rolls with fruit and muesli bars as well, not o mention the water!
The bikes were in all in great condition and easy to ride and it was a 20km journey but gentle with hardly any gear changing necessary. All the group were happy with the trip and we would recommend it! Paul has any easy way with all the group."

For all ages: Nature for the Adventurous soul

"Paul has a real passion for B.C., and it comes through in this excellent tour! I was travelling solo to Vancouver for the first time, and wanted a guided introduction to the hiking and biking trails around the area. Paul went above and beyond to share his knowledge of the area and make the tour as enjoyable and exciting for everyone as possible. Vancouver is fortunate to have access to so many great nature areas nearby, and it was a real treat to see some of the best hiking trails I could imagine just minutes away from downtown. The swinging bridge and swimming pools were both very memorable, and the trails were so well maintained they blew me away (well done, Vancouver!). The hike is easy enough for walkers of all abilities (yet exciting enough that the experienced hiker will appreciate it), and Paul will easily accommodate everyone on the tour without making anybody feel out of place. He then drove us out to the foothills of the Golden Ears mountains and treated us to a very well stocked picnic lunch (seriously, I was impressed)! Then he unloaded several styles of bikes (mostly a combination of cruisers and gravel bikes) and we set off on an easy spin along the many gravel paths that surround the area. Highlights include excellent views of both lake and mountains, as well as a stop to pick some fresh, ripe blackberries! He was willing to adjust the length and pace of the bike ride according to the groups' abilities, although the paths are fairly pancake flat, so riders of all ages should be able to enjoy the ride.

I cannot say enough good things about this excursion. It was definitely money well spent. I look forward to booking a multi-day outing with Paul in the future! I highly recommend this day trip if you're the sort who is fairly active, loves nature, and loves meeting new people. You won't be disappointed."
