Saturday January 7 – Insadong Ride (Hilly Leisure)
The Ride: This ride probably violates some new years resolution on people’s lists, except to be more active. Have you ever wanted to shout “bibimbap” and not sound crazy? You can on this ride. To continue with a cyclist’s favourite theme, the rolling bellies are headed into Burnaby for Korean food via the Burnaby Mountain Urban Trail. The terrain will be mostly road, with unpaved sections of the Central Valley Greenway. The pace will be leisurely, the distance is easy, but there are some good climbs. Road bike tires will be fine. Make sure your brakes work! Lunch will be at Insadong restaurant. Family style dining is likely unless the majority states otherwise.

One thought on “Saturday January 7 – Insadong Ride (Hilly Leisure)”
Four of us went on this ride, which started out dry enough, but ended with quicksand like conditions along the Central Valley Greenway due to flooding under unrelenting rain. We didn’t need a bike as much as a paddle and something to float in. Ark construction is underway. Your goretex won’t save you this time, Vancouver.
In the meantime, Insadong has renovated but kept the same porch parking to keep you steed dry and safe. The food is also still hearty and tasty, like your nonna would make. Just don’t forget to use the bell to request service, like we did, to avoid foolishly waiting for 20 minutes.
