12:00pm - 8:00pm
Trek Bikes Victoria - 338 Catherine Street, Victoria, BC
Come on down to the Tour de Victoria HQ at our favourite bike shop to get yourself checked in, waiver signed, pick up your swag and socialize with your fellow riders. You’ll also have a chance to meet some of the TDV sponsors to see what they have to offer. Our ride ambassadors will be on site with maps and information and can answer any questions you have about the ride. And it’s conveniently right beside Spinnaker’s Brewpub!
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 your sweet swag. 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 plate before they start the ride. You cannot have someone else do this for you. If you live out of town and are arriving after 8:00pm on Friday, there will be check-in and waiver signing available near the start line on event day.
There will be a Tour de Victoria merchandise area at the Rider Festival with limited number of Tour de Victoria jerseys 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 quantities are limited. We suggest coming early if you intend to purchase but did not pre-order.
Bike Check & Tune-Ups
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 Bike Store 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.
