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 (average speed on flats - low to mid 20km/hr) Meet: 7:30AM at Terra Breads in the Athlete's Village Please RSVP ride leader Colin if you plan to come.
