Nov 5, 2016: Nice rainy day ride on the Lochside Trail. A few people out but mostly quiet. Lochside Trail is a good one except for the little breaks in the path when you have to ride on the road (they are pretty quiet roads so not bad). I left from downtown Vic and biked north. The trail switched from paved to gravel around Blenkinsop Lake and the Blenkinsop Trestle (wish I had gotten a pic of that because it was really pretty and lots of ducks). Things got a bit muddy after that! Went to Cordova Bay and the golf course over there then turned around. Fun day!
Here are some pics:
The only not fun parts about the ride were the fact that all the water fountains are turned off after Nov 1 and the fact that I don’t have access to a hose to wash off my bike.
