Vacay.ca Wheels Through Victoria
When she toured through British Columbia‘s capital, Kathleen Kenna of Vacay.ca discovered in detail why it has been declared Canada’s fittest city. Kenna took a cycling trip around the picturesque town, experiencing the thrill of seeing Victoria on two wheels.
Kenna writes: “At Cycle BC, you can wrap your legs around a Harley-Davidson, BMW, Suzuki or Honda motorcycle, or try a scooter. Bicycles are popular because there are 100 kilometres of paved paths in Victoria, and most don’t require navigating city traffic or hills. Within minutes from downtown, I was cycling around the green lawns of historic St. Ann’s Academy, then the flower gardens, ponds, playground and zoo at Beacon Hill Park, Victoria’s oldest city park. It took a minimum of effort on a 21-speed Norco (and I’m not a cyclist) to ascend a hill to the park’s viewpoint, overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca.”
