Update January 11: It’s Speedos and tubetop weather. This ride is a go.

The Ride: It’s been a mild winter, so let’s push my luck and tackle the North Shore. I may be tempting the weather fates, but the rolling bellies ride on this week, entering the wilds of North Van in search of good coffee. This ride will venture into the rarefied community of Edgemont Village before descending down, down, to the Spirit Trail . Home is via Lions Gate bridge and Prospect point. The ride is short, but there is a long climb, hence the medium designation. Bring your thinnest tires and climbing legs. The hills will do your lungs and mine some good. If the mountains beckon me to ski, Will has graciously agreed to lead in my stead. This ride is weather-dependent. Keep your eye on this website and Whatsapp for updates.

    Twelve of us departed East Van in perfect conditions. Yes, there was much climbing, but we discovered new bike paths that wind through tall trees and park-like Grand Blvd. In Edgemont, Rob and Teddy joined us at Delaneys where we had coffee margaritas on the patio. The descent to the Spirit Trail was a scream. Many thanks to all who came and made it a memorable ride.
