Description:

Come along on the second instalment of my rehabilitation after some not so successful skiing back at Halloween...

Last time we went hiking up Seymour, but I went cycling to the shops today and realised summer has arrived (definitions of summer may vary...). So clearly what we all want to do is go for a cycle tour on Galiano Island!

Arriving at Sturdies Bay by ferry, we can then cycle to the other end of the island (about 30 Km) and camp at Dionisio Point Provincial Park. This should not be overly exerting (my round-trip daily commute used to be longer), no experience or fancy bikes required. Likewise finding camping gear to share is rarely a problem. The hardest part is likely to be getting us all with bikes to the ferry terminal, but we'll work that out once we know how many people we are and if we happen to have suitable cars.

 

So, we shall take our time getting to the park, I'm sure we can find nice places to stop along the way. Once there, we can set up camp, enjoy the views, the beach, everyone's good chat, and feast on whatever we fancy hauling there. By the end of the trip hopefully we've decided on something for the third instalment of rehabilitating a cripple. I found a weather forecast that said there would only be 1 mm of rain all weekend and I'm choosing to believe it.
