Gravel Routes

Gravel Routes Around Nanaimo

Nanaimo is a little known hot bed for gravel cycling with stunning vistas and crystal clear lakes to visit. Below you will find a selection of different gravel routes with varying distances and elevations to suit your fancy. Keep in mind some of these areas are quite remote and on private land, be prepared for all eventualities, mechanical or otherwise. Always tell someone where you are going and don't ride alone.

A big Thank You to Patrick for providing these gps routes and the photo.
