Cycle touring expert reveals Island’s best biking adventures

Learn about Island’s best backroad biking at upcoming presentation hosted by Hub City Cycles

Find out where Vancouver Island’s best back road biking routes are at an upcoming presentation by a cyclist who has covered the Island.

Gregg Strong, of Courtenay, has compiled a list of favourite rides for all levels of riders. It ranges from popular cycling routes on the Island’s main roads to favourite backroad bike-packing rides for cyclists who prefer to get going where the going gets rough.

Strong presents Cycle Touring Vancouver Island: Popular Backroads and Bikepacking Routes at the Nanaimo Museum on Wednesday, April 26, at 7 p.m.

The event is co-sponsored by Hub City Cycles, the City of Nanaimo and Bike To Work Week Nanaimo.

Admission is by $10 suggested donation, with proceeds supporting Hub City Cycles community co-operative.
