Once again, an easy ride to Hope to visit the famous Othello Tunnels.
You've all read my info on them so I'm not gonna repeat myself except to say "If you have never been there, this is the place to see this summer!"
Meet: 10:00 am, Esso - 7/11, corner of Haney Bypass, Lougheed Highway & 232 street, Maple Ridge.
Departure: 10:15, Please have your tank full! All drinking and smoking should be finished 2 1/2 minutes before departure time. Boarding will commence then...
Pace: Newbie / 2-up friendly. Basically we will be going with the flow of traffic....
Difficulty level: Easy. If you can keep up with the cars you can do this ride.
Route: Gonna follow the Lougheed Highway to Hope and then a few back road twisties to the Tunnels....
NOTES: Bring a lunch, we will be eating beside the river and enjoying the view! Bring water or drink, food, whatever you need to sustain life.
I would suggest shorts, T-shirt and runners or sandals for the walk thru the tunnels, it's gonna be hot!
Round trip through the tunnels and back including a nice lunch break will be about 1 1/2 hours.
Bring some change for the parking at the tunnels, it's a provincial park and they charge for parking.
