About 30 hardy cyclists from the Victoria area came across on the early Coho ferry Monday to ride up to the top of Hurricane Ridge on Canada Day, the anniversary of the 1867 effective date of the country’s constitution. The cyclists make the round trip in about 4 hours in time for the return ferry ride back home, including this group on First St. in Port Angeles. The yearly trek has been happening for about 20 years and is organized only by word of mouth through various cycle shops in the greater Victoria area.

Annual Ride the Hurricane set for Sunday

Hurricane Ridge will be temporarily closed to motor vehicle traffic
