Fast – Zip Code 98281
Sunday, June 16, 2019 at 7:30am. Arrive early, group leaves at 7:30 am sharp!
By: Y. ChartrandGet 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.
Riley Park Fieldhouse @ 7:30am PST.
Riders are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the route beforehand. This event is hosted by the Vancouver Bicycle Club.
