There are numerous oases of nature in the urban desert. This ride will pass through several in Vancouver and Burnaby where you can fill your quota of trees, water, and ducks. We’ll cycle to Deer Lake via Killarney and return via Central Valley. Expect some hardpack gravel that is easily rideable with road tires going through Captain Cook, Central and Deer Lake Parks.  There will be a food stop at the 24km mark. There are hills, but climbs are gradual or short for the most part. This is a no-drop ride and will run weather-permitting

Meet: 10AM Arbutus Coffee Shop at 6th and Arbutus

    Many thanks to the 7 others who joined me on this sunny day to explore our fair city. It started with doing the full length of the North Arm Green Way, which isn’t bad despite rough pavement. Sadly, we did not explore the lakes in Central Park as there is ice/snow on the trails. No, we were not adventurous today despite me often being asked, “When can we do another creek crossing?” Happy memories. In other sad news, our beloved Safari Snack House is closed due to fire. At Faye’s excellent suggestion, we had pizza at Viva Sue’s next door instead, which did not disappoint.
