I was close to you 2 weeks ago, I was at the San Juan Islands for a spell, we crossed international waters to catch a glimpse of the pod family of 4.
I was south of you at that time by a bit. I have only been to Friday Harbor, mainly on the ferry over to Anacortes.
I have been dying to ride the island but the wife keeps booking kayak trips so we are doing that again this year and it won't happen.
Maybe we will do a weekend adventure one year. I really want to do the ride out to Tofino. It is just not the same in an SUV towing crap or with kayaks on the roof.
I haven't done that road on my bike. It'd be a scenic ride, but the road usually isn't in good shape. Lots of pot holes, especially in the corners when you are heading through the mountain and up around Kennedy Lake.
Even on a summer day you'd have to prepare for all types of conditions with that route.
Living on the island and I don't take enough advantage of the rides available to me here. It's hard to get off the rock, but I've done the ride out to Pemberton and would love to do that loop.
With any luck maybe a couple of us will meet up at some point in the near future.
