Destination : Vancouver Island

Last October brought a longing to ride new terrain, see new places and make excuses for a road trip. Driving the 6 hours from Whistler to Sombrio inside a fierce storm, it suddenly dawned that this may not be the 'best' time to go beach camping. In hind-sight, the weather made for an incredible trip, bringing 4 friends together around a campfire sharing the warming delights of mulled wine.

 Honestly. There are dozens of bike-videos. There Films which put you in a good mood. Others which are quite inspiring and at least movies which pushes you to go out and ride your bike. For me "Destination: Vancouver Island" belongs to all of them. Thanks for sharing this great movie! Greetings from Munich.

 Sick video, should have included some clips of people actually surfing though, rather than just siting in the lineup.

 Thanks, Its a shame the surf pretty much sucked the whole time we were there. Next time!

 Was the plan but we didn't end up scoring any waves. This part of Vancouver Island can be extremely fickle at the best of times even with a solid swell forecasted. Few degrees out on the swell direction and it's flaaaaaaat. Hopefully next time the swell works out a bit better for us.

 That's not the point. It's the adventure, the scenery, and the people that sometimes make the best rides.
