Twisty route to the rally from SwartZ Bay Ferry terminal...

(by Submann 2008)

Directions:

Come off of ferry, get in right lane.
Take first exit right onto Wain Rd.
Stop sign - turn left onto West Saanich Rd.
Drive into Brentwood to traffic light (sorry) and turn right onto Wallace drive.
Turn right onto Willis Pt. Rd.
Turn Left onto Ross Durance Rd.
It becomes Millstream Lake Rd.
Stop sign - Turn right (still Millstream Lake Rd.)
Stop sign - Turn left onto Millstream Rd.
Turn right onto Finlayson Arm Rd.
Use caution, super twisty and the road surface degrades with steep downhill switchbacks
You pop out in Goldstream Park
Stop sign - Turn right onto Trans Canada highway
Turn Left onto Shawnigan Lake Rd.
At bottom of hill turn left onto West Shawnigan Lake Rd.
Turn left onto Renfrew Rd.
Keep right toward Koksilah Park.
Road turns to gravel
Arrive Sunny Daze Campsite on right

I didn't put distances on here as that would take ALL the fun out of it. Hopefully we can post the GPS files for download.

Sorry but I did route it past one traffic light. We only turn right there so it's just a glancing blow.:tup:

Many of us followed the Dakar Rally 2009 as it unfolded in Argentina/Chile last January.

Local rider DON HATTON, the only Canuck to enter this year, has offered to set up a display of his Dakar prepared KTM and speak about his experience in the rally. He will answer your questions as well.

Thanks Don, we look forward to your visit to the Orca Run!! :tup:

When you arrive at the campsite, find a spot to set up, then locatetheinformation table, sign in, get your t-shirt, dinner and raffle tickets.

Just to remind all riders... the gravel road approaching Sunny Daze campsite was recently graded.

It's like riding on ball bearings so be careful!
