Family biking in grasslands (Picture BC photo)
Fit cyclists touring the southern Gulf Islands should not overlook long, lean, and hilly Galiano.
Riders seeking tips, routing maps and mountain bike rentals (tandems and kid two-wheelers included) can drop into Galiano Bicycle on Burrill Road in the village of Sturdies Bay.
Ask for the Galiano Island Parks and Recreation Commission's Galiano Island Cycling brochure at the Sturdies Bay information booth. It features a fold-out map along with safety tips and etiquette. One important note: Ride single file to prevent mishaps on the island's narrow, limited visibility roads. The good news is that traffic is mostly light except for the few minutes when cars are offloading from a ferry.
Most recreational riders with reserves of stamina navigate the backroads circling out of Sturdies Bay toward the series of parks on the island's southwestern coastline.
