A pedestrian’s paradise, the City of Victoria is a great place to park your moto and stretch your legs. From our hotel, we had unlimited footborne access to pubs with Canadian ale, sweetshops with British candy, tobacconists stocking the finest Habana varietals, plus the Inner Harbour with its food carts, water taxis, and seaplanes. For a riding treat, we tooled up to Butchart Gardens and took a floral stroll then buzzed out along the southern coast to Sooke and beyond. If you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to poke your fairing into the provo park at Goldstream. Those string-thin, track-smooth, perfectly cambered roads are the chocolate chips that make the cookie.
