At The Pedaler, we take pride in our knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Since we like our crew so much, we thought you’d like to get to know them too! Check back here for profiles of all our Pedalers, get to know the team, and learn more about this dynamic city!


Patti Kagawa came to the Pedaler through one of our favourite organizations – Bike to Work Week. She was volunteering with them when she came across an email saying that we were looking for guides and thought it was perfect, as she was just retiring from her job in government and looking for something fun to do!

Patti’s favourite ride right now is a little off the beaten path. She likes the route from Fulford Harbour to Ganges on Saltspring Island because of the beautiful ferry ride out to the popular Gulf Island. Ending at the amazing Saltspring Market doesn’t hurt either! After a nice ride, Patti’s favourite drink right now is the Tofino Spruce Tree Ale, a nice refreshing summer beer from Tofino Brewing Company.

Patti’s favourite stop on our guided tours is also one of our all-time staff favourites, no matter the season! Cold Comfort Ice Cream on the Eat Drink Pedal tour. Patti likes it because of the wonderful ice cream sandwiches, especially the ones made with Hoyne Dark Matter beer. We love Cold Comfort for their local ingredients, cool attitude and creative flavours!

We’re happy to have Patti on our team this year! Keep an eye out for her biking around town.
