Victoria Winter Riding – December 9th

Martindale Road, Victoria BC

Too nice today not to get out for a lunchtime ride. Martindale Road

The picture shows the view facing East at the corner of Martindale and Welch Roads.

Heading up Martindale and across Welch is a great little detour if you’re heading South on the Galloping Goose. It adds a bit of “rolling French countryside” to an otherwise flat trip on the Goose. If you keep going on Welch it will turn into Hunt. Keep your eye open just before Fowler and you’ll see the trail intersection sign where you can turn left to get back on the Lochside Trail, heading South. Alternately, you can turn left on Fowler, which turns into a nice Seaside segment along Cordova Bay Road.

Here’s the location:
