Near Courtenay.

[edit] Participants?

[edit] Planning

Plan A

  • 3:20 - Elbie wakes up
  • 4:10 - depart UBC
  • 5:20 - get to Homer & Georgia, and hope no other cyclists will be there
  • 5:35 - the 250 departs Homer & Georgia
  • 6:19 - arrive in Horseshoe Bay, get on the 6:30 ferry to Nanaimo
  • 8:10 - arrive in Nanaimo, start biking to Courtenay
  • ~14:00 - arrive in Courtenay, go to hashpoint
  • 15:00 - turn around and start biking to Nanaimo
  • ~20:30 - arrive in Nanaimo
  • 21:00 - ferry departs to Horseshoe Bay
  • 22:40 - arrive in Horseshoe Bay
  • 23:10 - 250 departs Horseshoe Bay, or if the rack is claimed, a long bike ride home in the dark.

Plan B

  • around 6 AM - Bike to Horseshoe Bay - takes about three hours with generous stops
  • 10:30 - Ferry to Departure Bay in Nanaimo [1] - about a two hour ride
  • 12:30 - Bike from Nanaimo to Courtenay [2] - about 116 km, should take me about five hours
  • 17:30?? - Bike to hashpoint - about 4 km from the trail - and hope it isn't private property.
  • 18:00 - start searching for the Greyhound station in Courtenay
  • 18:25 - Greyhound departs Courtenay to Vancouver
  • 23:25 - Greyhound arrives in downtown Vancouver, bike home from there
