Rails to Trails - North Coast Great Redwood Trail - 320 Miles

The first steps toward making a more than 300-mile walking and cycling trail from the San Francisco Bay to Humboldt Bay, crossing some of the North Coast’s most scenic, least-traveled landscapes are set to begin later this year.

Details such as when the Great Redwood Trail could be completed, how the most challenging stretches might be constructed and how much it all will cost remain big unknowns. But advocates of the ambitious plan to convert a decaying railway into a world-class pathway, potentially drawing tens of thousands of visitors to the region each year, say they’re confident it’s not a question of if it’ll happen, but when.

More information can be found at ... The Press Democrat - the largest newspaper between San Francisco and the Oregon border.

Comox Valley Fall Cycling Events

Go By Bike BC and the Comox Valley Farm Cycle Tour

It is those rainy days that we often miss the chance to enjoy a bike ride, unless we have an incentive to get out there.  So the Fall in the Comox Valley is a fantastic time to register for a cycling event.  These local events give you a reason to ride your bike rain or shine.

In the months of September and October, many days are still beautiful with blue skies and sunshine.  People are settling back into their work or school routines.  The days are cooler and we are anticipating weather that can feel wet and gloomy.   We often seek motivation to stay active as the winter months approach.

Let the Comox Valley fall cycling events be the motivation you need to keep you on your bike.  The experience can transform a dreary day into an amazing one.

Needing inspiration?  In the video below, Nancy Gothard shares why she particularly loves riding in the wetter winter months and what she does to make it work.  We hope her insights about winter cycling can help others develop the habit to go by bike year round.

There are two Fall Cycling Events on the horizon meant to help inspire you to extend your cycling season in the Comox Valley:
