Cycling to Tofino


Cycle to Tofino, BC, GoTofino.com Cycling to Tofino is a great way to get here and once in Tofino the roads are safe and a separated bike/walking/skating path is a welcome addition. While Highway 4 has some really nice sections with wide shoulders and smooth pavement other sections are rough and have no shoulder. It can be very tight with the traffic.

One smart and enjoyable suggestion I heard from some touring cyclists in Tofino is to ride to Port Alberni then take the Lady Rose boat to Ucluelet. Cycling up to Tofino from Ucluelet is a great 30 km ride with bike paths in both villages and a pleasant road between them.

Walk on the Ferry, Rent a Car in Victoria or Nanaimo

Tofino, Tofino, BC, Pacific Highway, BC, BC Ferry, BC Ferries, Washington State Ferry,  Washington State Ferries, Drive Tofino, BC There are daily bus trips to Tofino. Another suggestion is to ride as a passenger on a ferry and then rent a car once you land on Vancouver Island, either at Victoria or Nanaimo. Car rentals are inexpensive in these cities and then you have your own transportation and can stop at any scenic spot on the drive to Tofino, inlcuding the beautiful section of old-growth trees that is known as Cathedral Grove and all the beautiful locations along the Pacific Rim Highway in the list below.
