Van Isle 500

On September 2nd 2020 Kate Downes & Fiona Elder plan to embark on a 5 day, 500km road cycle of Vancouver Island.

“Since Margaret and Angus Mackenzie started these yearly challenges, we have always been keen to do something to “be more like Bell”. This year we finally got the courage to do so.”

“Our plan is to start in Shawnigan and bike to Port Hardy over 5 days.  We’ll be stopping in Nanaimo, Courtenay, Sayward, Woss & finally Port Hardy.

We are hoping to have some friends join us along the way.  We will have a support vehicle (Steve & Bob & the Dogs) who will meet us in the evenings with our gear. Thanks Steve & Bob!!

We will be posting some photos of our training and let you know how we are getting on. We are also hoping to film some of the trip.”
