Hey Louis, glad we could help:

"I just bought your DH books and have enjoyed them very much. I am a new rider at 55 and your book has contributed to my new passion. This weekend we went to Port Renfrew and enjoyed all the different TEs and loved DH18! Thanks again for these great books." --Louis M

At a Glance

The longest road on the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island is as unpredictable as the weather systems coming in off the Pacific. As you leave the traffic and development of Sooke, the road ahead seems sunny and clear. Radiant curves and cloudless pavement play hide and seek with the ocean all the way to Jordan River, where the water views end. For the next quarter of the route, periods of tight curves are expected, with a 20-per-cent probability of slightly rougher asphalt. Check the forecast, though. Late in the DH, look for gale-force road conditions-- poor visibility, turbulent pavement, deep troughs of off- camber hairpins-- to move in over the untidy, second-growth landscape. Yet, if you like isolation, you'll get plenty here. And isn't that worth a little stormy weather?
