Group Ride hosted by Surrey HUB - Friday, July 13
Ride leader: Gordon Hall
Starting from Maple Meadows West Coast Express station at 4:38pm. I will be waiting by the ticket vending machines.
We will ride the Golden Ears Bridge with some great views, Golden Ears Bikeway, Tynehead Trails bikeway and 168 St overpass. This is some of the best cycling facilities in the lower mainland, comfortable ride most of the way, away from traffic on seperated bike paths. Stopping along the way for dinner or snacks. We will ride through some quiet neighbourhoods of Fraser Heights, view the new bridge and bike overpass not yet open, then ride the new 148 St bike lanes to Green Timbers park and lake, ending back at the Skytrain.
PS: You will have to find your way back to Maple Meadows WC Express Station at the end of the ride. One way would be to take the SkyTrain to Braid St. Station and from there take the 791 Bus which will return you to Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows. But it seems the last bus on Friday leaves Braid Street at 7:20pm and can only take two bikes/bus.
