Default One day of cycling in the Gulf Islands - suggestions?

Hi, we’re coming down to Vancouver Island in mid-August and we’re looking to spend one day (a Monday) biking one of the Gulf Islands. We’ve already done the Galloping Goose Trail and we’re looking for something new. So, if you had just one day to bike in any of the Gulf Islands – which would you choose (and which trail)? We’re good cyclists and willing to wake up as early as needed to catch the very first ferry. Thanks!

I just got back from a cycling trip on the sunshine coast and Vancouver island, I would recommend heading over to Saltspring Island for the day. You can catch a ferry from Swartz bay. Its hilly, and doesn't have a lot for a shoulder, but a fun Island to go check out. Town of Ganges is a great place to spend an afternoon.


Cheers

Ive lived here in paradise most of my life, I go hiking any chance I get, and one day Kilimanjaro I\'ll get you too!

I second Saltspring. If you don't mind the drive up island, Denman and Hornby would make a great day of cycling.
