The Pilgrimage is a two-day women only mindful motorcycle quest on Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. It has been consciously curated to travel one of the most exciting roads in B.C that leaves Victoria and ends in the Cowichan Valley. While traversing the stunning forests, mountains, and oceanside route, the rider will pause at four intentionally chosen locations of natural beauty called refugios. The idea for this motorcycle ride has been influenced by the notable pilgrimage, Camino de Santiago in Spain.
