Our Bike through Vancouver Island and Saltspring Island

September 2003

We went on a 124-mile bike trip on our tandem this summer - Wanda's first multi-day bike trip. We started in Victoria, went to Butchart Gardens, took the Brentwood ferry across to Mill Bay. The next day was brutal for both of us. We visited a great winery near Duncan (getting lost along the way), took the ferry across to Saltspring Island and biked along the north shore to Long Harbor. Our final day we biked to the south end of Saltspring back, ferried back to Sidney on Vancouver Island, and then biked back down to Victoria.


On the first day, we stopped at Butchart Gardens for a nice long break from biking
