Quick stop to get gobsmacked by the greens at Goldstream Provincial Park

Passionate about supporting the breakdown of barriers to folks getting active outside, we were jazzed to hear that Vancouver's carshare co-op, Modo, was jumping the pond to Victoria, bringing with them their enthusiasm for adventure and their fleet of cars to help meet the accessibility challenge for car-free South Island adventurers wanting to head north. Having recently downsized our own vehicle fleet, it was great timing to team up with Modo to make possible a rip over the Malahat to Shawnigan Lake to check out for the first time the Burnt Bridge riding zone, a classic of old-school VanIsle mountainbiking. 

You can check out our report here, including the results of our physics-bending test of whether a Scion FRS can in fact accommodate a mountain bike (or two), as their marketing materials would have you believe: http://modo.coop/blog/letsmodo-mountain-biking-in-burnt-bridge-and-beyond/

Big thanks to Modo for the loaner of the whip and friends Ross and Lis for showing us around.
