I just back to Vancouver from Salt Spring island.
When I arrived at SSI and hit the road, I was shouting "who let the newb out?????"
There were many “narrow, tight, twisted road and blind corner” in the island. Also some of road were bad condition.
It was great riding experience including riding on the gravel

If you are fed up with S2S, why don’t you go SSI. It’s worth it!!
BTW, I saw a few riders at the Ganges in the island
