I guess being a Vancouver resident I'm a little jaded by great roads and fabulous scenery, but my best ever ride was from Victoria to Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Check out Long Beach if you do it, great surf. Too long for a return trip in one day (at least 12 hours two ways), but what a trip! And you get a relaxing ferry ride through the gulf islands (gorgeous) to boot. You have to be disciplined rider, there's so much to look at that you are in constant danger of riding off the road. Have a great time!
