Eat, drink and pedal in style through Canada’s biking capital

Discover Victoria by bike with Magnolia Hotel & Spa’s Pedal & Pamper package 

Discover Canada’s cycling capital with a Pedal & Pamper package at the elegantly refreshed Magnolia Hotel & Spa. Victoria’s leading boutique hotel is working in tandem with the city’s favourite cycle tour operator The Pedaler, to offer a two-night stay in an inviting guestroom and a choice of urban bike tours around the city, starting at just $269 a night.New for 2014 is the tempting ‘Eat Drink Pedal’ option; this four-hour bike tour uncovers the hidden gems of the city’s blooming culinary scene from handmade pizza to chocolate truffles and artisan ice-creams – perfect for cooling off after a ride through the sunny streets of Victoria.

Cyclists can also explore Victoria’s charms, from local coffee shops to iconic sights, on a choice of three other bicycle tours around the city. Choose from a three-hour ‘Beans & Bites’ leisurely bike ride around Victoria’s tea and coffee shops, a ‘Hoppy Hour’ craft beer tour on two wheels or a two-hour ‘Castle, Hoods & Legends’ historical jaunt around grand mansions and historical haunts.

“We’re excited to team up with The Pedaler again to offer guests a unique and fun way to see the city,” says Bill Lewis, General Manager at Magnolia Hotel & Spa. ” Cycling is eco-friendly, great fun and the tours take visitors to the hidden corners of Victoria. Our unbeatable location, just moments from the Inner Harbour, puts us in the perfect location to begin an adventure around the city on two wheels.”

After a few hours of using pedal power, return to an elegant room at the city’s leading boutique retreat for an evening of pampering; revive sore muscles at Spa Magnolia with a Swedish massage or treat tired feet to a transformation pedicure.

Cycling certainly works up an appetite, especially if you’re sampling craft beer as you pedal along, and hungry riders can refuel at the Mediterranean-inspired Catalano Restaurant & Cicchetti Bar, located within the hotel’s elegant lobby.
