At a Glance

If you're looking for twisties, you'd better pick another DH. This fairly new highway, which covers almost half the length of Vancouver Island, was meticulously designed to conserve your side treads. On the plus side, you can really loose the Hayabusa on this smoothly paved and well-engineered road. And maybe even approach the posted speed limit. Thereís no doubt if you like that remote, biking-in-Canada feeling, you'll get plenty of it on this, the longest DH in southern B.C.. The sceneryís O.K., with journeyman vistas of lakes and low mountains, but itís not as good as youíd expect for a road running endlessly through virtually uninhabited territory. The many clearcuts don't help either. One last thing: if youíre heading up this way, pack rain gear. And it had better be good. The precipitation can be downright ferocious. Too bad we canít say the same about the curves.
