Pre-ride report:

Last week I drove the “Backroads” 400k route using the route sheet listed below. The route has not changed from previous years accept for noted very small changes. The mileage (kilometers) listed for each turn are accurate. Notes from the pre-ride are: At 64.2 Left on Oyster follow the sign for the ART GALLERY – gravel Road – then a right and left onto Ludlow which is marked. The Schooner Cove Control will be staffed as the Schooner cafe/restaurant remains closed. There is some construction on Chemainus Road at the bridge after the tennis court (Mt. Sicker Rd.) Be careful riding to Cowichan Bay- very busy – bus was parked at bottom of hill!! Turn around at Buckley Bay very busy gas station and ferry traffic– take care in parking lot. At 288ks gear down before making the Right turn on to Capilano – the hill is steep but short! At 325.4ks left at Holden-Corso @ Gas & Go change of name from ESSO. Good lights are required for the ride – it may rain so fenders are recommended.
