Update June 10: Shorter ride option posted below, same day.

THIS RIDE HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO JULY 14. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RIDING EMAIL WILL ASAP. At the end of my latest ride to Langley, I mentioned that I was thinking of trying a longer ride and a few others indicated that they might be interested (update: currently expect 5 riders, but you are welcome to join us). I expect this ride will be about 200km starting at the Lincoln Skytain Station in Coquitlam and riding on the northern side of the Fraser River through Maple Ridge to Harrison Hot Springs for a break and back on the same route. I am hoping that the terrain will not be very steep, except the one short (but steep) hill just west of Agassiz. Obviously, we will need to start early and riders will need to be able to keep themselves fueled and bring supplies to address the vicissitudes of pneumatic tires. As a one day tour this ride is only open to VBC members.

Start: 8:05am outside Lincoln Skytrain Station on Sunday 14 July (this will mean that you can be on the first run of the Millenium Line leaving VCC-Clark at 7:30am). I will be going by Arbutus Coffee just before 7am (then riding this route, if you want to ride to the train together).

Route: here, return on the same route subject to improvement based on suggestions received ASAP.

Leader: Will

SHORTER RIDE OPTION BELOW: Thank Tony D. for mapping out this ride, one of his favourites.

RSVP the leader Teresa if you plan to come on the shorter ride.

Meet at 930AM at the Tim Hortons parking lot, address 43971 Industrial Way, Chilliwack, BC

    Sadly, I am not able to ride tomorrow, but Colin has kindly agreed to lead this ride in my stead. I hope all who ride (longer and shorter options) have a great ride. I am hoping to be back in the saddle in about a week.

    Thanks to the 4 riders who joined me on this very scenic and flat route through quiet country roads of Chilliwack, Agassiz and Harrison. We had cool conditions and a tailwind on the way out, followed by headwinds and temperature of 27C by the time we got back to the car. The Agassiz-Rosedale bridge remains a white-knuckle crossing, as large vehicles towing even bigger vehicles pass us on a 2 lane bridge. Kudos to Colin, Kelly, and David for attempting the 200km and Justine for doing a 160km century. They may still be pedalling as I type…
