Ryder Hesjedals Tour de Victoria

August / 23 / 2015
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Ryder Hesjedal’s Tour de Victoria is a supported mass-participation cycling event in beautiful Victoria, British Columbia. Come and experience the world-class cycling routes and breathtaking scenery Victoria has to offer. Riders of all fitness levels can take part in the ride and choose to cycle one of three distances.  

Ryder Hesjedal's Tour de Victoria takes riders through some of Greater Victoria's most stunning scenery and cycling routes.  The event offers three ride distances, each with a separate start line and all ending at the festival atmosphere finish line.

The Tour de Victoria is a supported mass participation ride, it is not a race.

Note from Ryder: "The Tour de Victoria is always a highlight of my cycling season.  The routes are challenging, scenic, and exciting - you are all going to love it!  Thanks to everyone who has supported the event over the past four years in one way or another!  I hope to see you on August 23rd."  - Ryder Hesjedal

Our Rider Festival and Check-In is a laid back, festival-like event held at our favourite local bike shop in Vic West. It’s also right beside Spinnaker’s Brewpub! Come on down and socialize with your fellow riders and meet some of the TDV sponsors to see what they have to offer. We’ll also have our friendly and knowledgable ride ambassadors on site with maps and information to answer any questions about the ride.

Rider Check-In
At check-in you will receive your bike plate with the timing chip attached, zap straps to affix the plate to your bike, a wristband for post race food and beer and a tin of Kicking Horse Coffee. You will be asked to add your name, emergency contact and medical info on the plate – please come prepared with that information.

All riders need to check-in, sign a waiver and receive their bike on August 21st or 22nd. You cannot have someone else do this for you. If you live out of town and are arriving after 6:00pm on Saturday or early Sunday morning, there will be check-in and waiver signing available at your start line. Pre-arrangements must be made by email at info@tourdevictoria.com.

VIP Check-In
If you have ordered the VIP Package Upgrade there will be an expedited VIP check-in area where you will receive your VIP Package. Additional upgrades to the VIP Package will be available on a first come, first served basis.

CIP Check-In
If you are part of our CIP Program, there will be an expedited CIP check-in area where you will receive your ride package and sign a waiver.

Merchandise Sales & Pick-Up
There will be a Tour de Victoria merchandise area at the Rider Festival with limited number of Tour de Victoria jerseys, shorts and additional merchandise for sale. If you pre-ordered a jersey or shorts, they will be available there for pick up.

*Please note the jersey and shorts quantities are limited. We suggest coming early Friday if you intend to purchase but did not pre-order.

Bike Check
There is no mandatory bike check for the Tour de Victoria. At the Rider Festival and Check-In the mechanical support team will be there and you’re invited to bring your bike down and have them take a look. For those that are flying in to Victoria, avoid the hassle of putting your bike together and bring it down with you. Even better….ship it directly to the bike shop. The team at Trek Bikes Victoria will be offering full tune-ups, bike builds and other services for a special Tour de Victoria rate. Please contact them at 250-380-7877 to schedule, shipping, a tune-up or a bike build.
