On day 1 we leave Vancouver for Langdale and ride up to Earls Cove then over to Powell River (maybe head up to Lund for lunch) then over to Comox. From there we ride to Gold River. Stay overnight somewhere on the Island.
Day 2 we head out to Tofino and spend the majority of the day playing on the Island before returning back to Vancouver from either Swartz Bay or Nanaimo.

*Note: This is for experienced riders only as the pace will be relatively quick. Also, i'd prefer to keep the number of riders to a minimum.... no more than 6 total. So far there are 2.
Approximate cost for this trip should be roughly around $150 for ferries, gas, accomodation and food.
