The ride cuts onto Marine Drive in West Vancouver which we then follow to the ferry terminal at Horseshoe Bay. Riders have been known to turn back here. Keep going, it’s a great ride to Roberts Creek and lunch at the Gumboot Cafe (yum!). The hills are nice and rolling, (OK, some are short and steep) and one long one out of Gibsons. Teresa introduced me to this ride, and I thought it was great. We’ll have an early start in order to try and catch the 9:40 AM ferry.

    Many thanks to Colin for leading up to 11 riders on this full-day suffer-fest.* 🙂 I’m not talking about ferry food prices either. Or the lunch conversation about bikes and sex. There are many ways to find your doom; I never knew mine would occur on the climbs to Horseshoe Bay and Roberts Creek. It’s hilly, so I must complain…or get in better shape. All jokes aside, the company, food, views, descents, and weather were great. No mechanical issues, but one group mistakenly turned onto the aptly named Payne Rd, only to be welcomed back into the fold a few km down the road.

    A big welcome back to Lewis and Doyle!

    *Cameron calls it a fun-fest.
