At a Glance

Plagued by thick traffic from suburban sprawl, this busy DH seems destined for extinction as a decent motorcycle road. And thatís a shame because this route, rolling through whatís left of the pleasant countryside between Colwood and Sooke, has good pavement and great curves. If you could move a little faster, you might even get to enjoy them. The pylons-- mostly retired couples wearing rakish Tilley hats in their white LeBaron convertibles-- crawl even slower than the ridiculously low speed limit of 60-kph (40-mph) allows. Presumably, retirees donít like the centrifugal force generated by twisties. Itís the perfect place for speed tax collectors to enforce our favourite section of B.C.ís Motor Vehicle Act: Section 145(1) A person must not drive a motor vehicle at so slow a speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of trafficÖ Fat chance.
