The Ride: The terrain will be mostly road, with unpaved sections of the Central Valley Greenway. The pace will be leisurely, the distance is easy. Return will be all paved along Adanac/Union bike route and around False Creek. Road bike tires will be fine. Lunch will be at Insadong restaurant. Family style dining is likely unless the majority states otherwise. Will update post by 8am if cancelled due to weather.

This ride is rescheduled (again) from its original date on 15 October – I will be hoping that the rain gods allow us to enjoy great Korean food – finally!


Route: 10th Ave to Central Valley Greenway, return via Adanac/Union.

Meet: At Arbutus Cafe (Arbutus St. at 6th Ave.) at 11AM (moved back from 10am to reduce rain exposure – planning to ride even if still light rain, as forecast is clearing).

Distance: approximately 48km (return)

Route: Approximate routes – eastward route click  here route back click here. As a leisure ride, I expect the group will stay together, giving the ride coordinator some flexibility to adjust the route for conditions and rider preferences (also suited to limited ability with mapping programs), if you want to join us en route, let the ride coordinator know where and when and we will make sure not to miss you.

Ride coordinator: RSVP Naiden (with Will) if you want a message in case ride is cancelled due to weather

    I added a second route map for the ride after brunch so everyone would know that we will not be going over the hill in Coquitlam/North Burnaby. I am not good with RidewithGPS, as is easily understood by looking at the second route map.

    10 riders came out on this ride that started out juicy and moist, but ended dry and parched. Thanks to Will and super stoker Naiden for leading. Enjoy Naiden’s imitation of bodily functions while you can; he will start charging admission for that privilege. A big welcome to Maya for whom this ride was a piece of cake. Thanks to everyone for sharing a filling and yummy meal.

    Thanks, Gwyn, for all the actions shots. Enjoy the photos:
