About Us

Mid Island Velo Association is a volunteer driven non-profit organization committed to building a sense of community through friendly competition and group training/social activities centered around road cycling in the Nanaimo region.

We run a number of different series throughout the sunnier months, from our regular Monday night development rides, through criteriums and time trials to our women-oriented MIVA diva group rides on Saturday morning.

We all love cycling and it’s great to share the experience, and sometimes get a bit competitive too. So, take a look at our calendar page and see what appeals to you. Then, head over to the membership page to get signed up and come join us! If you’re not sure you can even try out a couple of events without becoming a member.


The MIVA DIVA activities are an opportunity for the women of MIVA to get together to ride and train in a supportive environment. It is a group for any women who are new to cycling, are looking to improve their cycling, or are just looking for some ladies to ride with. Look for MIVA DIVA activities on the calendar.

For any diva related queries please contact Charlene Stewart.

I started road riding as a way to get back and forth to work - little did I know that cycling would become such an important part of my life. There’s a bike for every season! Some of my favourite activities include introducing new riders to the sport through MIVA Monday night rides and the fabulous MIVA DIVAs.
