a scenic ride

The Duffy is always such a scenic ride. I haven't used it for a few years now, I heard there was a bunch of improvements and new asphalt???

I wouldn't want it to get to be too popular, nice the way it is!!

A few corners have been straightened, bridges made wider/replaced and pavement has less tar snakes.

After May long weekend, lots of tourists renting campers going up the Duffy will slow you down; and the descent into Pemberton by same will entertain with the sights and smells of burning brakes!

I'm envious of you folks that live up there

What you described is some of my favorite big DS riding spots in North America.

Thanks for the report.
