My wife & I intend riding up to Port Hardy over the Labour Day weekend. OK, I say "ride" but it will be weather dependent: nice weather = bike, rainy = car. OK, OK, so we are wimps. I am old enough and have ridden enough that I really do not have to ride in the rain anymore if I do not have to: been there, done LOTS of that!
We have a question for those that know the area: on the way back we are considering turning off the highway and going to Gold River on the Nimpkish Road and then Campbell River on the Gold River Rd (route 28?). Anybody that can comment on what this road is like?
