hey Ice, I live close to Vic, see my post and VI replies in intro, there a few from the Isle. There is lotsa stuff on web - some commercial tours, lotsa private info, pics etc. If you want to avoid/include the city, Gardens you may want to consider avoiding the Malahat, nice views but lotsa accidents/deaths don't recall if any cylclists, crazy drivers *aren't they all, 'cept me*- however, lotsa roadie, swim/bike/run types like it for training. Just not conducive to touring, it's a narrow, hilly climb with narrow shoulders and yet with metal gard rails, starts at Goldstream, out of Victoria heading to Duncan. beyond that, it's ok
May want to suggest checking out the little ferry, seriously that's what they call it, you know, like the little train, etc - here is link. http://www.bcferries.com/News/mill_bay.html
also cycling bc has tons stuff.
Edited in, Machka has some cool stuff, at http://www.machka.net/
will take you to the lower link to some routes on Vancouver Island. http://www.randonneurs.bc.ca/routarc/rout_arc.html
And finally the SCHEDULE MENU on the upper right hand side, which includes some of the elevations for a particular route.
