    Day Two
    Today's stage started with a long 14 km climb and we settled into the back of our wave until we hit some new single track. We climbed 500m of elevation but hit a backlog straight away. Luckily we were able to get around them and began another technical decent with slippery rock faces this time. Our hands hurt with the long technical decent and we got a short respite before the Enduro downhill. Once ...

    ... 8217;s bright, sunny and hot but we’re not fooled. Better pack some beach gear And some coats. I don’t know much about “the Island”, but I do know that Victoria is the biggish city at the bottom, and there is only one highway running north to the other settlements. I have visions of guys with big beards wearing heavy whale skin coats nodding in the street to other equally bearded guys in flannelette shirts and fur ...

Dave was a little more hesitant than Jack and he was the last one in the water. The temperature was absolutely freezing and it made swimming to the island pretty difficult even though it was short. Dave cheated by walking some of the way on the island bank, but we all swam the way back. It was refreshing and invigorating.

    We had a ...

    Snow in Summer

    Thursday was a 45 minute trip to Mt Washington, Strathcona Park once we had ferried across from Denman. This mountain has a myriad of ski runs where poeple from the Island flock to come winter. Their "winter" ran almost into summer as this year they were still skiing at the end of June. As a consequence as we walked a track that climbed steadily between cedar and douglas fir trees we inevitably ran into snow drifts! Being summer and ...
