From our Sunday ride 

Please note that there is now full time logging at  Boyd's Pit 7 days a week, therefore riding is strongly discouraged.  

There were some near misses at Boyd's Pit recently and the VMC is being blamed.  Please talk to your friends and ask them not to ride there as it is private property and riding is only by permit during events.  The VMC is working toward obtaining a riding permit for this area but until this time, please

The VMC needs your help
The VMC is a volunteer organization.  As such, all events are done for the members and public, by the members.  Volunteering to help on one of the events is the best way to get to know people and to help make a good name for yourself, along with making the event a success.  Check the forums for the events discussion to see what you can help out with or just send an email to the VMC with a general offer to help.  Also, you can usually find a contact email or phone number within the events calendar (from the main  menu) if you want to help with a specific event. 

Aside from being one of the entrance requirements, volunteering some time is educational, often good fitness, and a fun way to become more a part of this club that we all enjoy.

 To volunteer, send email to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

What kind of events do you run?

The VMC runs Trials, Enduros, Dualsport, and Street events. 

Please see the Events Calendar on the main menu for actual event schedules and information.


Trials and some enduro events are held at the VMC club property on Happy Valley road.  In Trials the object is to navigate through a predefined course while not touching your foot to the ground, falling over, or stalling.  You can get an idea of the size of obstacles covered by some of the expert level riders at the video gallery by clicking here or by clicking the image below to see a modern trials image gallery.  Trials events have a wide range of obstacle courses suited to those at a beginner level, right up to those at a world class level.

Most enduro events will be held at the new Tansky Main riding area near Jordan River, or riding areas near Cowichan Lake.  

 Terra Nova

The Tansky Main riding area is crown land where the VMC has a trail cutting permit allowing us to improve the riding areas by creating and maintaining trails.  Events hosted at this area will describe precise directions to the site.  Some enduros and the very challenging Terra Nova are held in Lake Cowichan.



Dualsport rides are a combination of on and off-road riding.  Each event will vary significantly so once again, please contact the event organizer from the events calendar to determine riding levels and equipment required.



Street events will be held in various locations and with various levels of experience required. 

Century Run Road Ride


Please pay careful attention to the event announcement in the events calendar and if in doubt, contact the event organizer listed to determine exact suitability for your bike, equipment, and experience.



The hillclimb event was previously held once per year at the VMC property, being a contest of speed to ascend a steep grade.  Unfortunately, due to safety concerns, this event is no longer held at the VMC.





Special Events

The annual Victoria Day parade is one of the special events where VMC riders get to showcase their talents.  The Victoria day parade is a yearly event through downtown Victoria, typically having a group of trials riders from the VMC demonstrating the unique capabilities of trials motorcycles and riders.

Field Meet

The Field meet  is a contest of riding ability and is typically held once per year at the club property.

Please see the events calendar for more detailed descriptions of the events. 

At the VMC, our goal is to ensure that all participants have a safe and enjoyable ride.  Often, events have multiple levels of competition and many are just fun events with no time limits or significant levels of difficulty.   We encourage you to get active and get involved! 

Warning!!! Those participating will often find that after their first experience, they are foregoing other activities (like mowing the lawn) and riding instead.  Please join us at your own risk ;-)
