Victoria’s reputation as an pale substitute for Ye Olde England and a favored destination for traveling neophytes on package holidays had, unfortunately, biased me against traveling here. I’ve been finding Victoria, at least in the off-season, a delightful and relaxing weekend trip.
Perhaps it was after Newfoundland, but it did not seem that difficult. So what it was raining, drizzling…that there were headwinds and the three Category 6 climbs on my loaded bike? I could do it again, backwards, riding a unicycle, standing on my head!
