Day 4: Vernon, BC to Nanaimo, BC

306.2 miles today! There is a saying in Idaho about the wind… well, it is not windy in BC it is that Washington sucks and Alaska blows! We fought the wind allllll day. And even though we were tired and wind burned, it was still better than punching a clock on a regular Monday! By the way, I do not have a windshield on my bike, so I really felt the wind.

Today was mostly highway because we wanted to make it to the island. Our plan is to ride a little on Wednesday and Thursday so that we can spend some time in Tofino and Victoria. So, the closer we got today, the better.

The Coquihalla Highway was gorgeous. The locals call it the “coke.” And it ends in the city of Hope, so we took the coke to Hope. We did not stop for a lot of pics today because most of it was interstate and congested.

The best part of the day was the ferry ride to the Island. It was a little less than 2 hours and it was beautiful. And we saw a whale, well its spray and tail anyways. The ride was $90 for two people and 2 bikes… just FYI. The ferries yesterday were free.

And we stayed in a legit hotel, TravelLodge, where we could walk around barefoot. Below are a couple of pics from the ferry and short video from the boat. Follow the trip on Instagram for more pics! #blogoffbitches
