Interview on CFAX

Planning the big Vancouver Island Grand Loop 2016 ride continues as we move into the heat of summer and motorcycling season comes into full swing.

I've made one quick change to the itinerary, and that is to stay at the Rugged Mountain Motel in Woss, rather than back-country camp at Woss Lake. Since I'll be arriving at the North side of the lake, and the camp area is located about an hour hike at the South end of the lake, it makes more sense to stay in the motel...which has a pub near by. Here's the change to day 3:

Day 3 - Mount Washington to Woss Lake Provincial Park - 200km - 5hrs riding time
Accommodations: Rugged Mountain Motel in Woss on Aug 22

Also of note is that I was recently interviewed by Victoria's CFAX 1070 radio station on April 8th. Terry Moore and Mark Brennae were fantastic hosts and I had a blast discussing the route and my motorcycle. A huge thanks to those guys for the opportunity to be on their show. You can listen to segment here:

If you haven't already, I'd encourage you to join one of the many events occurring this summer around Victoria and Vancouver Island. The Lower Island Riding Club has a few planned, including the annual Summer Camp that I'm hosting. The Motorcycle Rides & Events Around Vancouver Island group also has, as you'd expect, many rides and events posted.

Have a safe ride, everyone.
