    Winthrop - Sept 1st 9:00 am

    Been wanting to do a round trip of the best road on the planet - hwy 20 IMHO

    MEET:
    Timmys 86th ave and 200th st, south of hwy 1

    TIME: 9:00 am leave 9:15 am

    RETURN TIME: around 6:00 pm, depending on pace

    PACE: as always your comfort level, you cant get lost, straight run there and back

    BRING: proper ID and a passport, medical insurance is always a good idea

    Approx 700km round trip


    We will be going through the Sumas border to hwy 9 to hwy 20
    We will grab lunch in Winthrop, if you've never done this ride...it is a no miss
    hopefully a few peeps have a mid week day off...less traffic this way

    I think I can make it. Thanks, I look forward to it.

    May I suggest that you consider an earlier start. The border is likely to be nasty on the long weekend. As it is I think you will be lucky to have the group back by 8. I would likely want to meet up across the line as well.

    Cheers

    Might hook up with you at the Sumas crossing. I would go across and wait at Bob's Burger or whatever it is called. Depending on the weather of course.

    Wish I could make it. Never done this ride but really want to.
    Just out of curiosity, is 9 hrs an optimistic return time?

    Are you sure you don't want to push your start time up an hour or two. Lot of traffic going through Sumas these days. Earlier the better. Up to you, of course. Just thinking! Maybe forgetting the Timmys and heading straight down and crossing at 9 a.m.

    I might try to hook up with you guys for the trip back from Winthrop. What are you guys riding? I'll look around when I get there--be coming in from the east.

    I'm easy to spot--old white VFR and yellow helmet.

    I gather, then, that you are sticking to your original plan and meeting at Timmys at 9 with departure at 915. I guess you would get to the Sumas border at 9:45. I will cross over earlier and meet you at the Gas Station on the right. Silver Honda CBF 1000 with black bag on rear seat. If I am not there, I found the lineup to long and went somewhere else. Cu then. Roger
