Where to Ride

Nanaimo has lots of great bike routes that help make riding safe and scenic! Check out this link to help plan your route!

Take a bus

Public transit is a great way to get around Nanaimo. Let someone else do the driving while you listen to music, study, check emails, finish that last minute assignment...


Carpooling may be a good option for you! Even a day or two a week makes a difference. Who's in your neighbourhood that may like to share? 


Walking is a great way to get to where you're going as well as an opportunity to take in amazing scenery, get to know your neighbourhood, unwind at the end of the day, get some outside time... So many good reasons! Live close? Try walking a day or two a week!
