Back this year is the free Rod Run and barbecue, held on Aug. 20, the evening before the big show.

Anyone who wishes to take part can gather by the Co-op CardLock at Mays Road and the Highway between 5:30 and 6 p.m.

Everyone will start cruising at 6 p.m., taking a scenic route through Cowichan Bay and finishing at the Country Grocer in Cobble Hill for a free barbecue, courtesy of Country Grocer.

This cruise is open to everyone, whether or not you intend to participate in Sunday’s Show and Shine.

There is no entry fee for the cruise, just show up and enjoy some good gearhead social time.

The route sounds tasty, too: Cruise up Mays to Bell McKinnon, turn right on Bell McKinnon then left at Herd and follow Herd through to Maple Bay Road right through to the roundabout at Tzouhalem Road.

A final run along Tzouhalem Road towards Cowichan Bay through the First Nations reserve, past the lawn tennis courts, and you’re in Cowichan Bay where you’ll just continue along Cowichan Bay Road to Valley View, where dinner waits at Country Grocer.
