August 9 – 10, 2014 …. join the Coast Riders for a weekend of fun riding to Gold River B.C.!!
We will take the Tsawwassen to Victoria Ferry. First thing Saturday morning we’ll board the 7 AM ferry at Tsawwassen and disembark at Swartz Bay. After a meetup close to there for some Island riders, we’ll ride thru Victoria, then up the Malahat Highway past Nanaimo to Parksville for lunch, then continue to Campbell River, where we will have dinner and overnight at Haida Harbourside Inn.
After a good breakfast on Sunday morning, we’ll depart Campbell River and head west on beautiful Highway 28 to our destination, Gold River, where we will also have lunch.
Time & distance to Gold River from Campbell River …
1.5 hours & 88KMs
This is a great ride with great scenery, and is one of the best rides you can do in B.C.! make sure you bring your camera!
If weather and time (most probably!) permit, we may ride the remaining 10 KMs to the end of the Gold River Highway to salt water.
After riding back to Campbell River, we will then take the inland (new) Island Highway southbound, and catch the next available ferry to the Mainland (guessing 6 or 7 PM). Riders can decide whether they wish to catch the Departure Bay ferry to Horseshoe Bay, or return via the Duke Point ferry to Tsawwassen.
A riders list/info notice will be posted on the club FaceBook page approx one month before the ride.
Hope you can make it! Sign the event list on our FaceBook page if you interested in joining the ride.
