A couple of highlights from the race notice.
Ferry: Traveling from the mainland to Vancouver Island – recommended to take the Horseshoe Bay/Departure Bay Nanaimo ferry. Please check schedules and rates at www.bcferries.com. Travel time on the ferry is approx. 1 hour and 40 minutes. Given that the event is taking place on the Family Day long weekend, we strongly recommend making reservations in advance. Please check website regarding reservation policies. Travel time from Nanaimo to Mount Washington is approximately 1.5 hours to the top of the hill depending on weather and road conditions.
Our personal plan is to catch the 12:30 Ferry on Thursday and the 5pm Ferry on Sunday. We have a Sunday night reservation at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Langley (with a 4pm same day cancellation). If the roads look good and we feel energetic we will cancel and come home Sunday night.
