2012 Cycling Series Victoria BC

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012
Specialized Russ Hay's Time Trials 2012

Time Trials route along Dallas Rd

Victoria BC Cycling Festival racesWhat a weekend! June 1-3 here in Victoria BC we enjoyed the Robert Cameron Law Corporation Cycling Series. The weekend began with the Specialized / Russ Hay’s Time Trials. It was a breezy and slightly chilly evening but the view from Victoria’s Dallas Rd. trumped the weather and the cyclists didn’t disappoint when it came to giving it their all for the crowd. This event has each rider challenge only themselves. many even have specialized time trials only bikes and watching them dawn the sleek aerodynamic helmets brought back memories of Star Wars. Unlike Star Wars there was no Darth Vader to fear, only the clock.Darth Vader like Bike helmet (more…)

We have a Bike Love Contest Winner!

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Thanks to everyone who sent in their photos and entered Accent Inns Bike Love Contest. We received many exciting, fun and scenic photos and the staff here all had different favorites.  We didn’t choose the winner though…you folks did.

Commuting like this is really starting to cramp our style!

Keri Coles has been crowned the first ever Bike Love photo contest winner!  Congratulations Keri,  who received 98 likes and is the Big Winner off $1000 in Norco Gift Certificates. Congratulations again Keri, now you can upgrade & get a better bike for commuting.

As the Bike Friendly hotel chain in B.C. we are thrilled to see and hear from so many of you that are also bike enthusiasts.  Some of you talked about road racing, some about radical mountain bike trips and it’s always fun to see children excited about cycling.

Several folks out there have asked…”why did Accent Inns put on a Bike Love Contest?”

We put together this contest so that we could meet many of the other Bike Lovers out there and to make sure anyone wanting to travel around BC now has a fantastic Bike friendly hotel option.

Here’s what we think a bike friendly hotel should offer…and we do!

Store your bike(s) in your hotel room -
*designated “bike friendly rooms” located conveniently on the ground floor.

Bicycle wash and tuning station at every Accent Inn
great for getting the “trail” or “road” off of your bike. No more bending over to work on your bike.
Simply clamp your ride into the professional grade bike stand & tune / clean away.

Advanced Mechanic Tool Kit available for use
includes 37 shop quality park tools so you can do everything from brake adjustments
to  headset overhauls.  You just might need to stay an extra night to play with it all.

Rags available – great for cleaning and drying your bike.

On-Site Laundry rooms available at all of our BC hotels

after all –  it might not be just the bike that needs a wash after a day on the trail

Congrats again to Keri Coles the winner of the Bike Love photo contest.
