Special thanks to Bryson McEwen for his technical wizardry on the video "Rainy Campbell River."
I quickly realized my mistake and knew where to go, but before I could turn around I passed a few of our cyclists going the same direction. They saw my vehicle pass, with it's distinctive rear 3 bicycle carrier, and figured they were going in the right direction. Unfortunately, they did not see me turn around, and I did not think to flag them down and point them in the right direction. I got to my post, radioed Roger and Judith, who came out to talk to me, and then retrieved the wayward riders, by then several kilometers down the road.
Roger has a big truck, so they all piled in, bikes in the back, and started again from my post a little out of Courtenay. These particular cyclists were very gracious to me later when I talked to them, and were also proud of the extra miles they had ridden, as well they should be.
The riders then rode up to Rippling Rock, about 10 km past Campbell River but Andrew and Patience went straight to the big Baptist Church in Campbell River.
