September Ride - Pacific Marine Circle Route

Hi All,

We have one more ride planned for this calendar year and it's a nice ride that is forecast to be a beautiful day. The route is the Pacific Marine Circle Route.

We will be departing from the Tim Horton's at Costco - 739 McCallum Rd, Langford - at 9:30 and make our way along the coastline on Hwy 14 to The Coastal Kitchen Cafe, 17245 Parkinson Rd in Port Renfrew for lunch at around 11:45 am.  

After Lunch we will continue across the island through Cowichan Lake and south back to Victotria.   If you haven't done this loop before you are in for a treat.

Would you please let me know if you plan to make it out.

Thanks so much.

Just a reminder that we are holding a Club breakfast at the Salt Spring Inn in Ganges this Sunday, 7 Aug 2011.  You need to take the ferry to arrive at the Salt Spring Inn about 1000.

Your choice of ferry,  Take the 9AM ferry from Swartz Bay to Fulford or the 8:40 from Crofton to Vesuvius. Coming from Fulford ferry, head in to Ganges, down the hill, turn left & go about 1 block.

The Salt Spring Inn is on the left.  From Crofton, Brian will meet that ferry at Vesuvius and be your guide.
