What you'll do
we will meet up for a quick coffee and/or snack and then head out on a 3-5 hr exploration of salt spring island, taking the roads less traveled, many shortcuts and scenic byways. rides will vary from 30-160kms and may involve a lot of climbing and mixed terrain. groups will be reasonable size and the pace will be spirited.
I have been passively cycling my whole life, but after a work related bike tour of new zealand things rapidly progressed. cycling is the ideal tool for exploration and discovery. i raced cyclocross for many years, but realized that my true love of cycling is best represented by long days in the saddle, exploring, discovering, ideally with a few good treat breaks and a good spot for a swim. here's an article from one of our rides... https://bike.shimano.com/en-US/information/news/summer-rides-on-canada-s-gulf-islands.html?fbclid=IwAR048iqRiYyZmdlI-BsynS9bJ6ksagZygSrAEqlTP-KDq5Og7FfjRWgAji8

Where you'll be
skinny tires on loamy single track, tackle the south end's three scenic peaks, do a full island tour, stop for wine/beer/cider/spirit tasting, coffee, pizza, treats... ride a 160km loop through lazy rolling farmland and quiet gravel pathways, ride over one of the largest timber train trestles in the world.
