Cycling Nanaimo to Parksville
I have to be in Parksville in a few weeks and I'm hoping save the ferry cost/hassle by biking instead. My question: is Nanaimo to Parksville a reasonable trip for a moderate recreational/commuter cyclist (hybrid bike, average shape, occasionally gets off and pushes bike up steep ones)? From what little info I can track down on the 'net, the topography looks kinda nasty.
If anyone knows this route and has any tips regarding hills, traffic, quieter routes, etc. I'd really appreciate hearing from you.
