Map cover of Salt Spring on Wheel

Island Pathways’ new cycling map, “Salt Spring Island on Wheels”, is now available.

Salt Spring roads can be narrow and meandering which is a part of their rural charm, but when travelled by bicycle require caution. Much of the included information in the map is there to aid the cyclist in planning a cycling experience on Salt Spring that will match their abilities, experience and expectations.

There are route descriptions, route profiles giving elevations, slope and lengths, chevrons indicating locations of major hills, photos illustrating a variety of roads cyclist will encounter, and safety tips.

The map is available for purchase at a number of Island locations including the Visitor Centre, Salt Spring Books, Waterfront Gallery, Old Salty, OutSpokin’ Bike Shop, Blacksheep  Books, Salt Spring Mercantile, and others.

You can also purchase the map online for $15.50 (including shipping).
