Up to 270 km on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver island. A big loop from Victoria to Port Renfrew then inland on the newly pave road to Lake Cowichan and back to Victoria.

Check out the web site. It is a modest GF with hope of attracting up to 200 riders in its inaugural edition. Proceeds to benefit Young racing cyclists to get to their races.

Heya - glad to see this being organized!

270km is not my idea of a fun day...the shorter the event the better in my books! ;)

Hope it's a success!

Just get a ride home from Lake Cowichan. I think that is an alternate plan and could be a bus if enough wish to call it a day at that point. Probably around 180 km at that point. Not the 333 meters a lap or the OBB Saturday ride but a good distance for a racer.
