Yeah you know what this is .
The forecasting people claim that Saturday will be rain-free, and I intend to take them up on it.
I'll be riding to Hope for some lunch, and am planning to do some exploring afterwards.
What's especially interesting is this "Jones Lake" road:
Looks like a fun twisty road, and hopefully it's in good condition. I plan to drop by and check it out on the way back.
The master plan is as follows:
Meet at 10:30AM at the Chevron gas station at the intersection of Dewdney Trunk Rd and 232nd Street, in Maple Ridge: http://maps.google.ca/maps?f=q&hl=en...15192&t=h&z=17
Leave 10:45AM sharp. Hop on to Lougheed (#7) and head off for Hope. There are a couple "adventurous detours" we can make on the way. We'll decide whether we make these or not when we meet. They are as follows:
- Get off Lougheed at Hayward street, and follow Key Stone Ave -> Dewdney Trunk -> Ferndale -> Stave Lake St -> back to Lougheed.
- Get off Lougheed at Seabird Island Rd and follow it to get back on
From Harrison we'll go on #1 and get off at exit 153 to take a look at that Jones Lake Rd
(this one is also debatable - we can always head back the way we came on the much more fun #7)
Pace : fairly slow - out to warm up for the season and enjoy the sights rather than the pavement (my 125 is also somewhat of a limiting factor ).
Reason: because I can, and it's too damn long until the 22nd.
Price: gas money; photos w/ me at $5/piece.
Note, that there is a chance we'll hit some rain, and if it gets bad we may turn back .
