UPDATE at 7.50am: The forecast is for clouds but no rain for today. We will try for a quick Iona run with lunch at Ikura Sushi, still meet at Arbutus Coffee, but at 10 instead of 930. This sprinkle we are having now should have stopped – so we were promised.

The Ride:  This popular ride attracts many cyclists and has become a club classic. It’s perfect for a fine spring, now summer, day. It boasts spectacular scenery, varied terrain and challenging climbs to work up an appetite.

The Route: We will across Stanley Park, ride over Lion’s Gate Bridge, ride residential roads skirting the ocean, then join the bike route with its many twists, turns and killer climbs and eventually find ourselves in Horseshoe Bay. Lunch will either be at one of several fine dining restaurants or take your picnic to the waterfront park. We will then return along scenic Marine Drive with a cappuccino stop at Delany’s in West Vancouver. Almost any bike with triple rings and good brakes will do.

Route: here

Meet:  930am at  Arbutus Coffee at 6th & Arbutus 

Distance:  Approx. 60 km.

    Despite today’s adverse weather we managed to have a really nice ride to Iona Island. Five fearless cyclists braved a fine mist, smooth roads and little traffic to our lunch spot. We later returned to civilization on the Arbutus greenway. Not your typical July ride but close enough.
