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 Deer Lake Wonton House  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

    There were up to 10 riders on this ride, which are pretty good numbers in such iffy weather. Fortunately, the most moisture we encountered was a light drizzle at the end of the ride. Take that, eastern Canada! By eastern, I mean everything past Abbotsford. Any smugness, we had lunch at Safari Snack House again, since the other restaurant was closed and I didn’t feel like waiting out in the cold. I would like to welcome Craig to his first VBC ride. Congrats to Jinsi for joining the club!

    Enjoy the photos, with advance food porn warning:
