“Not Available in Victoria, . . . Pity” a news release

John Luton, Coordinator of the Vancouver Island Cycle Tourism Alliance, joined CRD Parks staff and other stakeholders to walk a new trail alignment proposed to connect north from the Galloping Goose to the Cowichan Valley.  Passing by the Humpback reservoir, the CRD will be developing the link from Langford over the next couple of years.  Although hillier than the trail it is meant to replace (now under water behind the raised Sooke dam), the trail will create an important link for recreational and touring cyclists.  Scenic views and lush forest sections will make for a beautiful ride.
