Adventure traveller Gregg Strong is the guest speaker at the Comox Valley Cycling Coalition AGM March 6 at the Florence Filberg Centre, 7 p.m.
Strong has worked and cycled in remote places around the globe. Upon returning to Canada, he continued his passion for cycling, first in the Canadian north and then on Vancouver Island. He has spent many days exploring, by bike, the Comox Valley and beyond. His sense of adventure and enthusiasm for travel on two wheels led Strong to volunteer time to build an informative website that allows him to share this passion, and to help others enjoy bike touring on the Island.
Strong has many stories and tips to share. He will discuss his favourite rides on local islands, favourite biking season, wildlife experiences, and strategies to stay safe. He will also talk about his website, and make suggestions about how to approach bike touring as a beginner or experienced cyclist.
It will be a fun evening. Strong’s presentation will take guests on a virtual journey so they can imagine their own Vancouver Island bike touring possibilities. Imagine going to locations that few people ever have the opportunity to see. We believe his travel adventure presentation is one that could inspire people to plan a trip, or just enjoy a vicarious travel adventure through Strong’s eyes.
