Bike 1:05:00  9.0 km (8.3 kph) +400m
Wow this was a hot one - 32C. Broke up our drive home with a stop in Merritt to ride TMI and Godey Creek. A nice climb as always and Godey Creek was fun though the rocky bits were trickier on the Epic. The creek flooded and wrecked a few sections on the trail.
GPS track appears to be messed up.
Paddle 1:00:00  6.0 km (6.0 kph)
Sup in Cadboro Bay with Courtney and my dad (in his kayak). Along the shore to the point and back. The ocean water is a lot cooler here vs on the Sunshine Coast. A good headwind for the return trip made things more challenging.
Bike 2:00:00  40.5 km (20.3 kph) +350m
Urban ride with Courtney and my parents around Victoria. First did my dad's commute via the Galloping Goose trail then the long way back via the coastal scenic route. A stop in Cadboro Bay for a coffee and snack/
Paddle 1:00:00  5.5 km (5.5 kph)
A final paddle from Rich's place in Campbell River. Tide was pretty low so more adventure than last time with more current in the river and a few walks to get trough shallow bits. Great views of the peaks on the island today.
Bike 2:00:00  16.0 km (8.0 kph) +750m
Riding Maple Syrup in Duncan. This one might need a re-ride for a proper grade... legs were tired, had the XC bike and it may have also suffered a bit from knowing so many riders who love this trail and therefore had high expectations. The climb was nice and enjoyed it more as it got more technical higher up. The down had some fun sections but I really did not have the right bike for a lot of the steeper sections and the dry/loose conditions made it a bit trickier. I was also expecting more DH flow - I knew there was some uphills on the way down the trail but they seemed excessive and gratuitous. You'd get into some good DH flow and it seemed like the trail would dump you right into a steep, super punchy uphill climb that lasted a minute or two. Like I said my legs were tired so maybe this affected my perception... Also felt like a lot of the downs dumped elevation way too fast - kind of a hold on tight down a loose bumpy steep bit. Anyway may have just been an off day - will re-ride it in the fall and we'll see what I think then.
Hike 1:00:00  3.5 km (17:09 / km) +33m 16:22 / km
Last day of the hike - since yesterday we pretty much covered two days in just one we didn't have too far to go today. An early start allowed us to cross the last tidal channel at pretty low tide and had an easy ankle deep walk across. Easy to see how at higher tide this could be a much deeper experience. The last few km of the walk threw some final energy sapping pea gravel at us. Final highlight of the trail was seeing a small whale very close to shore playing or feeding in the surf. We walked through Friendly Cove, met Ray who collects the trail "fee" and waited for our ride back to Gold River (we'd called the plane for an earlier pick up). A nice end to a successful hike.
