View from the route
The BC Randonneurs brevet season is about to begin with the Tour of the Cowichan Valley 200 on April 7. This ride is an old favorite combining rolling hills with lovely views. We will be starting and finishing at the Dancing Bean Café on Willow St in Chemainus. The café is opening at 6 am for breakfast especially for us. Each of the three controls will be peopled by BC Randos to sign cards, give out water and encouragement.
There are two important changes for this year:
1. The main highway up
to Cowichan Lake is a mess so we will be avoiding it. Check your
route sheet! We are going to Gordon Bay Provincial Park rather
than Youbou for the third control.
Eighty riders rode the Victoria Populaire on March 25th. We are looking forward to seeing many new Randonneurs at this ride as well as all our old friends!
