This morning you pick up your bike at EagleRider’s store in Vancouver and are off on a ride through super, natural British Columbia! You are heading over to Horseshoe Bay, a quaint and picturesque seaside village on the North Shore of Vancouver, and board the BC Ferry to Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. Nanaimo boasts one of the prettiest waterfronts in Canada, and is the third oldest city in British Columbia. Nanaimo itself offers many sights, you might want to check out…How about taking a heritage tour and see a number of historic buildings, such as the Miner’s Cottage, the Nanaimo Courthouse, the brick-faced Earl Block, and the Palace Hotel? Continue your ride and cruise down to Victoria – Hwy 1 is your road. You travel via the pretty little town of Ladysmith, Crofton – and should definitely plan a stop in Duncan – the “City of Totems” – located in the Cowichan Valley to visit carvers at work at the Quw’utsun Cultural Centre. A tour of local wineries and BC’s first cidery is a must! Continue with panoramic ocean views to your left into Victoria, the capitol of British Columbia. Victoria boasts a mild climate with lush, green vegetation. Begin your sightseeing with a tour of the Legislative Buildings. You should take time to admire the city’s gardens, parks, museums and beaches while here. Overnight.
