A group of dedicated individuals have been working with local businesses for many years to bring cycling events to Quadra Island. The process has always been collaborative, grass roots and inclusive. We love that.
The spirit has remained the same with this event, with the primary coordinators coming from a tight-knit group of passionate riders and businesses. The steering committee is largely comprised of members of the Quadra Island Cycling Coalition, or QuICC.
Over time, we'll add more information about the people and principles that guide QuICC and the projects that we're involved with on the island. In the meantime, we have had a lot of interest and a support from businesses that we wanted to start highlighting on this page. By no means is this list exhaustive - it takes an island of people to put on an event like this.
Sam and Andrea have been building beautiful bicycles on Quadra Island for over 12 years. Their passion for all things cycling is infectious. They're responsible for a lot of the shenanigans that happen on two wheels.
