Hornby Island, from Vancouver Island , took us two ferry rides. One to Denman Island, and another to Hornby Island, Even though it was a Friday morning, we made it on to both ferries without waiting for the next boat. Hornby Island has probably become the most well known mountain bike destination that is "almost" on Vancouver Island. It comes highly recommended for good views and trails that are "smooth" by Canadian standards. We found a little of everything. The legs were a little tired from yesterday, but we still managed to pump out 22 km.
