The weather couldn’t have been better. The trip starts with a short cycle to the trail for the hike up Reginald Hill where we ate lunch. Then another short cycle (uphill) to a great swimming spot at Stowell Lake. Traffic is light on this beautiful road to Ruckle Park, in the laid back island lifestyle, with roses, honeysuckle etc. and the occasional deer. Then into Ruckle, where our end of the walk-in campsite was virtually empty. I had a Burley trailer and small dog, so I didn’t go with the group to Long Harbour but returned via Fulford Harbour. Thanks to Lesley for the perfect cycling getaway, and to everyone for allowing the dog!
