For fear of becoming a dotard, I’m challenging my navigation skills by combining a couple of previous rides. This ride starts in Burnaby/Coquitlam, explores the Poco Trail, winds through Pitt Meadows, Fort Langley, and ends in Surrey. I repeat, in dotard fashion, the start and end are not the same! Enjoy beautiful views of no less than 3 rivers. Be prepared to climb initially and towards the end. There is about 3km of flat, hardpacked gravel, manageable by skinny tires.  By lunch time, you’ll have earned a nice meal, at the Jolly Coachman Pub. If we do the Fort Langley section, there will be a coffee/bathroom break there too. Bring a bike in good working order, tools and spares to fix flats, your Compass card if using the Skytrain, a lock, and lunch money.

Route:  click here   It’s an 83km ride, but I may shave off a section of the route.

Meet: Lougheed Skytrain station, at 900AM.

RSVP: Teresa

Weather: ride is canceled in the event of rain, to be posted at least 2 hours before the meeting time.

    Many thanks to the 4 riders who joined me for part or all of the ride. They indulged in my propensity for gravel, enjoyed the flats of Coquitlam and Pitt Meadows, and suffered the last 35km climbing into a stiff headwind. Thanks to David who helped navigate us out of Mundy Park before starvation set in. And thanks to those I drafted behind, which is everyone. Kudos to the one person who rode home from Surrey. Most of us too sapped of energy and warmth from the wind took Skytrain instead. I foresee an early bedtime.
