Our Route: Took Highway 1 all the way to Helmcken Road in View Royale, which turned into Wilkinson Road, and then went North on Highway 17 and turned off on Haliburton road, where Derek resides. All roads have decent shoulders, except when passing through Duncan, and on Helmcken/Wilkinson where the bike path seemed to start and end at every block.
Ending point: Derek O'Farrell's place, in Saanich.
- Malahat summit is 352 m.
- We biked to the grocery store after taking all our gear off. The bike felt as unstable as the first time we put on the gear.
