A sidecar is a motorcycle attachment used to transport either passengers or cargo. Sidecars are nothing new. They have been around almost as long as motorcycles and they are making a comeback. The experience of riding in one includes many smiles and laughter! The Daytona Sidecar can accommodate two passengers – two average sized adults, or one large adult and a child
The Daytona sidecar rig is inspected by the Passenger Transportation Board and licensed under provisions of the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act as a motorcycle, and must abide by the same rules and regulations as any other motorized vehicle traveling on provincial roadways. Accidents can happen; but rest assured that your guide is an experienced motorcycle rider with an unblemished driving record, and will be transporting you as safely as possible.
We can only accommodate children that are no longer in car seats or booster seats. They are welcome if over about 9 years old or 4’9” as that is the provincial legislation for riding in a vehicle without a booster seat. The sidecar cannot safely anchor any car seats or booster seats. And we do not have motorcycle helmets that are approved for children smaller than that. Passengers in the sidecar can be most any age, but we would prefer that those riding on the back of the motorcycle be at least sixteen years of age, and able to follow the directions of the driver/guide.
An experienced and licensed guide will be driving the sidecar rig. That gives you the chance to see the sights without the distraction of driving.
Helmets are mandatory for motorcyclists in the province of BC and we can provide them for passengers of Custom Sidecar Tours. If you have your own helmet, we encourage you to bring it along.
We recommend passengers wear long pants and shoes with closed toes for your tour. It is always a good idea to bring a jacket, as off-lake breezes can be chilly at times. We do have a trunk on the sidecar if you need to bring a change of clothes or any other personal items.
No. Motorists in BC are required by law to insure their vehicles and this also covers the driver and any passengers. We also carry commercial business liability insurance as well.
Tours can book up quickly, so it is always best to book your tour as early as possible. We will make every effort to accommodate your request.
No, the Daytona sidecar is convertible and it completely encloses in the event of rain or for those who wish to avoid the sun. Rain gear will be provide for any one that is riding on the back of the bike. Your deposit will be refunded and your tour will be cancelled if there is heavy constant rain in the area. The tour may still take place if there is only a light intermittent drizzle. We absolutely want you to be comfortable during your visit.
Each sidecar is only able to carry two passengers at any given time. We are a small company, but we can arrange a group tour if people are willing to take turns over the course of one or several days. Contact us, and we will see what we can do to accommodate.
Maximum weight per passenger is 280 lbs. Any passenger must be able to step in and out of the sidecar safely with little to no support from our driver. We cannot accommodate riders that are small enough or young enough to need a booster seat in a car. All riders must fit in a helmet adult size small to adult size extra large.
Tours may be pre-booked for any day of the week, from sun rise to sun set.
