Step 2: Make travel plans
First off, we're not on an island. But you have to take a ferry or plane to get here. (Huh? It's a peninsula, and there's no road along the other side of the Squamish Inlet.)
You can travel race morning from Vancouver (race starts at 9:17) but staying overnight is more fun. Prices are low here. The Official Race Hotels are the Cedars Inn and the Gibsons Garden Hotel. Special rates for participants! (more info + B&B options)
