Discovery Bike Ride #4: Tynehead overpass Surrey

This month's Discovery Bike Ride will be on Saturday, July 16. Note: this ride will be "unguided" if we have more than 10 participants, due to liability issues.

We will take you to the Grand Opening party of the Tynehead Cycling and Pedestrian Overpass in Surrey, spanning Highway 1 at 168 St.  This overpass connects the Tynehead Greenway to the future Barnston Greenway. Here are some pictures of the overpass. This map shows the route we'll be taking from Memorial Peace Park to the Maple Meadows West Coast Express station  A and from there to the Tynehead Overpass.

You can join the ride at 3 locations:
9:00 am: Memorial Peace Park at 224th St. (distance one way: 19 km)
9:15 am: Zenberry Cafe, #7 - 12350 Harris Rd, Pitt Meadows (at the railway crossing) (distance one way: 16 km) (return trip to Pitt Meadows not guided)
9:30 am: Maple Meadows West Coast Express station A (distance one way: 13 km)
(note: please arrive 10 minutes before, so that we can get you to sign the required waiver)

The opening ceremony at the overpass will be at 11:00 am.

Most of the route on the Surrey side will be on beautiful, smooth, paved off-road paths, a real treat!

Please let me know if you will be joining us for this ride, and at which location.

For those of you who would like to explore this part of Surrey a bit more by bike at your own leisure, here's another, more detailed map, provided by VACC Surrey.
