This is a wonderful way to spend a day riding along some of the most beautiful roads in the lower mainland!
Weather dependant, of course, if it's not nice, no ride for you!
This ride includes a personal, guided history tour of the famous Othello Tunnels, rated amongst the top attractions to see in B.C. and one of the top engineering feats in all of Canada.
It's an easy ride there and back, a nice controlled pace (traffic speed) with a few twisties thrown in to keep you awake.
MEET: 9 am, PetroCan 7/11, corner of Haney By-pass and Lougheed Hwy, Maple Ridge.
Note: Approaching from West, continue through Maple Ridge along Lougheed and turn right into station. DON'T take the by-pass. Approaching from the East, take the turn onto the by-pass then immediately right into station. Please gas up and then park at the far edge of the lot on the eastern side.
DEPART: 9:30 sharp. Please be on time, give enough time to fill up as we won't stop again till we leave the tunnels!
PACE: Calm and easy, go with the flow of traffic.
DURATION: Approx 7 hours including tour and lunch
BRING: A lunch. Walking shoes, cool clothes to wear. Camera. High expectations.
Please post up if you are coming, don't bother if you're not.
