Final Year of the Doppio?
The organizers of the VGF Doppio look forward to the 2017 edition. SInce 2010 the event has produced many memorable experiences for both participants and volunteers and this year will be no different.
This route will remain a classic for many years but 2017 will be the last year for the VGF Doppio to run in its current form. It would be a tribute to all those who have been part of this event over the last 8 years to make this a celebration of not only the riding on South Vancouver Island but of all the experiences that have come out of the Doppio. We can’t count the number of times participants have said “I’m coming back next year and bringing all my riding partners” Well, this is the year you best do that. We’ll make sure your friends have an amazing experience and they’ll be thanking you for the tip. Remember, the real value is not the ride itself, its dinning out on the story of your 265km ride and how you now know that your capabilities are beyond your imagination.
There will be a field limit of 150 and we are expecting to sell out. Victoria Hotels will be full on this weekend so do not delay in booking a room. Our host hotel, The Harbour Towers, has rooms blocked for the event and is offering special event rates. Please consider them first when making your arrangements.
