Hit the Road


Vancouver to Tofino, 147 miles

Our trip down the coast to San Diego starts with a detour from the planned route – heading west to Tofino. Our friends, Pip and Dave, are currently holidaying on Vancouver Island and kindly offered their spare sofa bed for three days in their Tofino cabin. We looked at the map and calculated we could make it there in three days – the only problems being the mountains and long stretches of uninhabited road. First up, cycle to the port and the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo.

Finally made it to the beautiful Long Beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

    Chaps! Loving the progress – excellent work.

    I wonder if we could instigate “Calf Watch” – I’m keen to see how much Battersby’s legs are going to grow with all this cycling…

    A picture at every stop will suffice.

    Thanking you – stay safe
