    Hosting an ADV ride in the valley on Sunday. It's about a 4.5 hour loop start and finish at the Chevron Hwy 1 and 232nd 10:30 am start. Photos from my recon yesterday. 20191022_121218.jpg 20191022_132948.jpg 20191022_133011.jpg

    I think I might be able to join you Sunday as my bike has been sitting too long and it looks like a good way to get out.
    Will post commit on Saturday.

    Thanks,

    Yes as long as you are able to ride for just over an hour between breaks. The ride will take about 4 to 5 hours. 270 km most all pavement mabey 15km gravel. If you come and ride bring a gps to record your track as you will never remember the route first time round. It's a cool loop.

    Sounds good for me! 6'5... although I still think the Super Ten is the one for me... One day I will have my ADV bike and be able to join the group here!

    What a great thread!

    I'll keep an eye open for rides for lower-cc / more FSR oriented folks like me on my 'Berg.

    cheers,

    I’ve never been up to Westwood Plateau in Coquitlam before.

    This Wednesday is supposed to be nice. Anyone free then? Since I work in Burnaby, I’m thinking of either going after lunch right from work, or maybe link it to something else and make a day (off) of it.

    I’ve got deadlines on Thursday and Friday, so the rational side of me says I shouldn’t go at at all.

    Change my mind. :lol3
