Update January 5: Weather forecast is good, so this ride is a go.

The Ride:  This ride follows the shore of Boundary Bay through a major bird habitat and is a nature lover’s dream. Last time we did this ride all manner of wildlife was seen. Ride 18km on gravel into Tsawwassen for a snack, then back to Mud Bay. Yes, it’s ALL gravel, which you secretly love and crave.

Bring tools/spares in case of flats. Keep an eye on the website and Whatsapp for possible cancellation in the event of rain/snow/ice. Ride cancellation will be posted 3 hours before the start of the ride. Let ride leader know if you can provide carpool in your vehicle, for which the participants should compensate you for gas, etc.

Meet: Mud Bay Park at 10AM, address 13030 – 48 Avenue, Surrey BC.

I’m hoping for third time lucky. The ride leaves from Terra Breads near Science World  over the  Lions Gate bridge and then along Marine Drive to Horseshoe Bay. Stop for a bite (MMMM! Fish and Chips.) and then return via the same route.

The Ride:  The ride leaves Braid Street Skytrain, winds it way to the Coquitlam river (and up, no paddle), across to the Pitt for a short dyke ride to the Pitt River Bridge. From there we go along bike trails and back roads to the Billy Miner Pub.. After a beverage or two, (and perhaps a bite to eat), We will return via Pitt Meadows Airport, Mary Hill Bypass to United Boulevard to return to Braid. This is a no drop ride, it’s not a speed ride.

Bring tools/spares in case of flats. Keep an eye on the website for possible cancellation in the event of rain/snow/ice.

Meet: Braid St Skytrain station at 9:30.

This ride will go rain or shine, but hopefully shine.

The Ride:  This ride follows the shore of Boundary Bay through a major bird habitat and is a nature lover’s dream. Last time we did this ride all manner of wildlife was seen. Ride 18km on gravel into Tsawwassen for a snack, then back to Mud Bay. It’s not all gravel, just mostly, which is a totally different thing. Be prepared for at least 200m of pavement.

Bring tools/spares in case of flats. Ride cancellation will be posted 3 hours before the start of the ride. Let ride leader know if you can provide carpool in your vehicle.

If you are looking for an early start and some extra kms, Will will be riding to the start via Alex Fraser Bridge at a medium ride pace leaving from Arbutus Coffee (W. 6th Ave at Arbutus St) at 7:30am and will be crossing the Skytrain bridge around 8:10am. Be ready to roll at these times, as will want to get to Mud Bay for the start.

For the “MEDIUM” riders, the ride starts at the Olympic Village, for the “LEISURE” riders, it starts at the parking lot just before the Seymour Demonstration Forest. Be prepared for uphill from just after the bridge, past Cap College to the start of the forest. Once in the forest, we will proceed at a leisurely pace along the rolling paved trail to the lookout. (If you want to race to the lookout, feel free, I’ll be there at a leisure pace.) Be prepared for some gravel riding (short) as we cross to the other side of Lynn Creek for lunch will be at the Lynn Canyon Cafe.

Meet:  Olympic Village, Terra Breads

Time: 9 AM Olympic village, 10:15 Demonstration Forest

Ride Leaders: Colin

Route: Here

Distance: 65 km

The Ride:  We will start at Lafarge Lake–Douglas skytrain station. Go over the Pitt bridge and then follow Dewdney Trunk road to almost Stave lake. We could go up to the Abbey in Mission, but it’s a pretty good climb. We’ll come back via the Lougheed and Pitt Meadows airport to Braid skytrain.

Bring tools/spares in case of flats. Ride cancellation will be posted 3 hours before the start of the ride.

It’s time to test your conditioning! 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.

Route: click here, distance 90+km

Meet: 730AM at Terra Breads in the Athlete’s Village

Please RSVP ride leader Colin if you plan to come.

Bring: your BC Ferries Experience card (or so Teresa says), snacks, water, extra tube and basic tools for repairs.

Friends and members only.

This ride starts at the Olympic Village, Stanley Park, UBC, Marine Drive to Kent to Dorothy and Colin’s house for a BBQ (provided). We can pick people up along the way, just let me know before hand. Want a real easy ride, may I suggest meeting at the Skytrain bridge at Cambie and Kent. Want to go a bit further, meet at the SW end of the Burrard bridge. Want to go further yet, ride up Seymour before the start of the ride. Just let me know if you plan on coming so that there will be enough food and drink.
