Update May 8: see alternate meeting location below. 

NB: The summer schedule for the Massey Tunnel Shuttle is now in effect. Click here for the schedule. Options to get to the start point include driving, transit, bike across the Alex Fraser bridge, or carpooling.  

I’m starting this ride on the other side of the river, only to end up on that other dark side, the USA. This is a ride through mostly flat farmland, with hills in Tsawwassen and Point Roberts.  A food stop will be made in Tsawwassen, probably here.  Keep an eye on the website, as this ride is weather-dependent. If it’s raining, a cancellation will be posted by 7AM.

Parking: Town and Country charges $5 a day for parking.  There is free parking at the Delta Chamber of Commerce (6201 60 Ave) or in the industrial park next to the Shell station, which is where I’ve parked without incident. The address is 6165 Highway 17A, Unit 310, Delta, V4K 5B8.

Meet: 915AM at Town and Country Inn, 6005 Hwy 17A, Delta. This has closed down, though the bike shuttle still stops here. If there is no place to wait in the parking lot, plan B is to meet in the industrial park directly east of the Town and Country, address 6165 BC-17A Delta, BC V4K 5B8

Route: click here, about 60km round trip. Pace will be about 20-25km/hr on the flats. If the group wants a longer ride, add 10km for the out-and-back to Westham Island.

Bring: your Nexus card or passport , CAD if you plan to buy your lunch.

RSVP the Leader and indicate whether you need or can offer a ride. I will do my best to be your ride matchmaker: Teresa

    Many thanks to the 9 riders who joined me on this ride to Point Roberts. The day started out cool and breezy, but warmed up nicely enough to have lunch outside in comfort. Fueled by a good meal, we even did the out-and-back hammerfest to Westham Island. Sadly one rider took a spill and required patching up, but managed to finish the ride.

    A big welcome to Jennifer and Russell on their first VBC ride. Kudos to those who rode to the start: Yves, David and Colin.
