The caption for this photo from the BC Randonneurs Cycling Club VanIsle 1200 website reads: "Van Isle 1200, July 21, 2010. Dewain patiently waiting for me while I take photos of riders passing by the Saanich Inlet."
Dartre and I have a special passion for Vancouver Island from a very particular visit there once. It means a great deal to us.
On another visit I had a pretty interesting black bear encounter while fishing along a bear-frequented river. It is a wild and special place with storied Steelhead streams and lots of open space.
The BC Randonneurs Cycling Club's VanIsle 1200 website has ride reports, fresh photos from the 1200 kilometer grand randonnée that began yesterday and continues into Sunday. Do check them out.
And until I get to ride this one myself, I'll be visiting that special island vicariously through these fabulous rando ride reports and photos. If you're unfamiliar with the sheer size of Vancouver Island, grab a globe and you'll be astounded.
Go get 'em randos!!!
Keep it grand,
