A gorgeous hot day yesterday so went on a lovely bike ride from Mattick’s Farm to Island View Beach in Saanichton with my friend Janet Daines.  It’s only about a 7 kilometer ride, but it requires quite a climb along Island View Road which is followed by a long curvy downhill section. Janet had no trouble with the hill, but I had to get off my bike about half way up the hill because I don’t have great hill climbing gears.  The ride is pretty much through farm country so it was gorgeous. And, arriving at Island View Beach, the views were even prettier.  It was clear enough to see Mount Baker today too, a bonus.

Of course, having come down the hill required another climb back up, but the views were worth it.
