Island 500

Have you ever wondered what it might be like to ride the big loop twice?

Well, what an idea I have. Port Hardy to Victoria, no this isn't a camping trip. One ride, 500km, tons of fun.

I am planning a ride on the weekend of August 10th from Port Hardy to Victoria. We will leave Victoria by bus Friday August 9th in the evening and depart Part Hardy on the morning of the 10th. The ride will take no less than 16h and no more than 20h. There will be support vehicles for the riders throughout the entire ride.

This is by far the silliest thing that you'll ever do, but think about that longest ride stat on Strava 8).

The ride will be $100, this will include transportation to Port Hardy as well as support all the way back. Whatever is left over after everything is paid for will be donated to TripleShot Youth Cycling.

Let me know if you are interested and I will add your name to the ever growing list of people. So far about 20.

This is the worst idea I've ever heard.

Perfect timing, because you'll be nicely warmed up for the Tripleshot Hurricane Ridge ride on August 11.

I'd be all over this if I wasn't camping in Tofino...

Seriously epic!
