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 easily do it all in one day but staying overnight is more fun. Prices are low here. The Official Race Hotel is the Cedars Inn. Special rates for participants! (more info)
