: Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal
West Vancouver, BC V7W 2V1
It's last minute notice, but the weather looks great!
The party is on the island this weekend, we are leaving the lower Mainland...
Intermediate XC ride in the Cumberland area (one hour North of Nanaimo).
I know a fun 2-3 hour XC loop with singletrack climbing, other than that the riding is exploratory. There are detailed maps of the area for $5 at the shop. Riding is XC/AM.
Hostel beds are available at the Riding Fool Hostel for $25 each or couples can get a private room for $60. Very friendly place, run by riders, bike shop on lower level... http://www.ridingfool.com/index.html
There is a bakery and a smoothie/espresso shack a block away from the hostel for breakfast and a dive bar across the road that has a dinner special and a live band on Saturday night.
Riding Saturday afternoon Oct 16 and Sunday morning Oct 17.
I am planning to be on the 8:30 am sailing Horseshoe Bay-Nanaimo, leaving from North Burnaby, and could take up to 3 more people and bikes. Carpooling recommended to keep the ferry costs down.
