This is a classic VBC Leisure Ride. We’ll break for treats and coffee in Lonsdale Quay. The ride home will go through the Spirit Trail in North Vancouver and the now completed bike path on the Ironworkers’ Bridge (both completed since the route was mapped), which are not shown in the route link below, and will involve a steep but short climb. Cross your fingers and hope for good weather. Ride will be canceled in the event of rain. Keep an eye on WhatsApp on the morning of the ride for updates.

Meet: Arbutus Coffee (Arbutus Street at W. 6th Ave) at 9:30am

RSVP: Dov if you plan to come

As the weather turns cooler, I am always inclined to food from warmer places. Dosas at Dosa Corner (8248 Fraser St.) meets this inclination. We will follow Naiden’s favourite route to UBC, continue around Point Grey in a counter-clockwise direction and then follow Kent Avenue to Fraser (route below). We will ride at a leisure pace and wait to regather the group at regular intervals – no one will be left behind.

Ride may be cancelled or modified due to weather with an announcement here and on WhatsApp around 8:30am on the day of the ride.

Meet: 10am at Arbutus Coffee (Arbutus Street at W. 6th Avenue)

Route: see here

Leader: Will (and Naiden). If you want us to know you are coming email here.

The Ride:  Come for a ride and enjoy some of Richmond’s longer riverside stretches.  The views are awesome, and traffic is light on weekends.

The Route:  The route will take us on 10th, south on Heather, across the Canada Line bridge, east on River Road, then south on 7 and Sidaway, then ride west on Dyke Road to Steveston for a yummy lunch at one of the VBC’s favourite pubs: The Buck & Ear.  Click HERE for the route preview.

Meet:  At Terra Breads at the Olympic Village at 1000

Distance:  65 km.

Ride coordinator:  Andrea C.
