v    NOTES: 

·        Generally, the road is narrow with no paved shoulder and little to no gravel shoulder.

·        Special care must be taken when logging trucks, motor homes and vehicles with large mirrors pass by.

·        When there is no shoulder, sometimes it is beneficial if you get off your bike to let these large vehicles pass by safely.

·        Logging trucks usually travel up to 7 days/ week and from 7am to 5pm.

·        Traffic is busier during the summer and on the weekends.

·        If there is any info to be added or revised please contact Barb Broster at Sooke Cycle & Surf,   (250) 642-7320   sookecyclesurf@hotmail.com
