Sunday June 16th :: Fast – Zip Code 98281

Get your passports ready and dust off your aero wheels. We’re heading for Point Roberts. Make sure your bidons are full of water before crossing the border. We don’t want to be chased out like it’s 1973. This is classified as a “fast” ride because of the overall distance 135km and selection of roads. There will be windy segments and we’ll be riding along the South Fraser Perimeter Road. There is generous shoulder for cyclist but trucks go by fast. This is a no drop event. We’ll maintain a “leisurely” pace on city streets and we’ll maintain a steady endurance pace; say ±25 km/h (on flats) on regional roads depending on weather and road conditions.

Riders are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the route beforehand and to carry a detailed area map or other navigational tools.

  • SFPR Eastbound (Hwy 99 to Nordel Way) approx. 9km. Wait for the group at the Nordel Way Truck parking. It is on the right where “Hwy 99 connector” meets “Nordel Way”. There are washrooms there.
