Considering a bicycle getaway to Victoria BC

652 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  Migen21
I've lived in Western Washington state most of my life, and have never been to Victoria (Vancouver many times). I'd like to remedy that, and am thinking about taking a bike up to Victoria on the Victoria Clipper from downtown Seattle and spending a couple of days puttering around.

I'm not necessarily looking for epic rides, although I'd be interested in hearing about them. I will be using the bike for transportation though, and would be interested to know what I don't know about the place.

Good/Bad bike shops to check out?

What are some good places to stay? Good restaurants? Must see attractions? Things to avoid?

How safe is it to lock a bike up for an hour or two while I'm sightseeing or eating lunch?

How is the road infrastructure for cycling? Bike lanes in town? Bike Trails/MUTs? How about shoulders on the rural roads?

Thanks in advance.
