MIVA recently contacted the BC Department of Highways and the contractors responsible for maintaining the highway shoulders. On a ride along the Island Highway this week, between Nanaimo and Parksville, it was observed that the shoulder was significantly cleaner than last week and there was evidence of brush marks and gravel pushed aside. All those who frequent this part of the Highway, please let the Highways Department and the contractors know that you appreciate their efforts to make cycling a bit safer for you.
