This trip is re-schedule to the weekend of July 13th-15th. 

We'll take 7pm ferry from Tswassen to Swartz Bay on friday, then bike to Victoria. camping or staying at hostel.

Saturday we start early, taking the first ferry and bike to sooke, pass it towards French beach Provincial Park. There's a meadry (brewery for mead) open 12-5pm, and we visit them (hence, the early start). we pitch camp at French beach, and maybe go for evening ride.

Sunday, we're heading back. Depending on our mood, we can check out pot hole park near Sooke, or sip some coffee in Victoria with smelly outfit, or stop-by at farmers' stand. The last ferry is 9pm, but I personally prefer to catch 7pm at latest.

What you need to bring:


sleeping bag+mattress


10 essentials

an extra set of clothes + jacket for the night

sun block

sun glasses

waterbottle 2L (depending on your hydration/dehydration property)



food - though we can do grocer along the way


update: it's a little more like saturaday start with the first ferrt crossing to Tswassen
