My recommendation for touring is to follow a clockwise route if you can. It reduces your number of left turns and makes your ride safer.
You can check with the Tofino Bus for connections to Nanaimo. If you are moving very quickly you could do the Sunshine Coast loop that in two days, but they might be long. You'd need to schedule at least a day... continued
Island Bike Brings the Vancouver Island Mountain Bike
Community and Clubs Together
Island Bike is a new family oriented mountain biking event coming to the Vancouver Island and Gulf Island Communities. It was started by local companies, Freak Maps and Dirty Girl Designs, as a concept to bring the Island clubs and their members together to show off their own unique trails. Each year Island Bike will be hosted by a different club. Guides from within the club will showcase their local trails, as well as show off local music, food, mountain bike celebrities and hospitality.
The event gets started at 9 am ~
Tranquility Woods ~ 2080 Errington Road, Errington, B.C.
Please contact Dan (above) or Michelle (250.951.3500) with any questions..
This event is becoming known as the Outer Bike of Vancouver Island!!
