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.

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.

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.
