As early as I can, I am picking up the bike that morning from Cycle BC rentals 73 East 6th Ave. Vancouver.

So as quick as I can get the bike is when i'm leaving. Probably be a good place to meet up.

It might help you squeeze in a bit more fun. I would prefer to show you myself, but can't get the time off this time of year. Have a good time!

RacerXS, I have a copy of this book if you want to borrow it.

Tuesday Tofino run, eh? That definitely sounds intriguing. I'll see if I can get some time off...

I'm actually going to do the Tofino run on Wednesday now, the weather is supposed to be nicer & I can get an earlier start.
I'm picking up the bike on Tuesday & they dont open until 10am, which means could not get started until 10:30-11.

On tuesday I am going to take the route 7 toward hope ride, if time allows i'll go all the way & return on route 1.

You want to go out on Hwy 1 and back over 7. The traffic in the afternoon on Hwy 1 is brutal. Hour long lineups at the bridge are common. No lane splitting in this province.

If I can make a suggestion ride back home on 0 (Zero) Avenue. You can pick it up around Abbotsford it runs along the border.

If the weather is ok when you get to Hope ride up the Fraser Canyon an hour or so, get gas in Hope first.

If you can't get a copy of Destination highways from Commuter Boy, I can bring in the DH Map to my office and you can come over and pick it up. PM me your email and I will send you my office address .

Thanks everyone

Thanks everyone for coming out - this sure was the best turnout we ever had!



Since we have quite a few members repeatedly coming into town from Langley, I suggest - fair is fair - that we host next month's meeting in Langley? Us Vancouverrites could even think of riding there together (with a little detour maybe?)

Any thoughts on this?

Could anyone from Langley suggest a suitable location?
Anyone volunteer to give a short demo/trip-report/show-and-tell?
