Hello Van Island peeps
A few buddies and me were planning to go over to the Island on the upcoming long weekend and I need your advice as to which route would be best. We're staying the night in the Nanaimo area, and will probably go for a 10 hour rip. Actual riding time will be about 8 hours, with 2 hours alotted for lunch and pee breaks. The two routes I'm contemplating are as follows: a) from Nanaimo up the 19 to Campbell River/Strathcona Park or b) Nanaimo up the 4 to Tofino.
My question is based on a 10 hour window, how far can I go on either route before having to turn back to head back towards Nanaimo.
I was also thinking about a trip to Gibsons, but the rip up to Egmont/Earls' Cove looks to be a bit too short.
Thanks in advance for all your help. Believe me, any help is greatly appreciated considering I've rarely visited the Island but look forward to the roads there soon.
