Point to thread is to make a meeting point for those NOT in town..this will follow as time goes. Departure time from Carter is 6:30, so By the time we get anywhere, we are looking 7pm. (pushing 7:30pm..due to traffic)

It's warm out, it's a beach, there's coffee, some say the 'scenery' is fantastic.. ;)

If I can come, I'll be at Carter at 6. All depends on the little lady.

It's 12:40pm at the time of writing this. My girlfriend gets off work at 7pm. Is there a spot we can be picked up around 7:45-8pm??? I have to pick her up, zip home, get some safety gear, and then grab my bike and we're off.

If there is, I'd love to take her for her first group ride. (on the back...too bad she doesn't have her own bike)

04-29-2002, 12:41 PM
Yeah, can someone set up some "pick-up" points in between Carter and White Rock??... I suggest Annacis as one, Im pretty close to there. =)

CG
04-29-2002, 01:20 PM
well since bugs can't get to a computer really at work. i'll answer this one.

annacis, and I guess RMS as another meet spot. i'll tell the guys when we meet at Carter to head down Westminister highway so we can stop at RMS to pick up late comers, then head to annacis to pick up some more. expect a 6:30-6:50 meet time at those 2 meet spots....

Xyban
04-29-2002, 01:35 PM
I'll be at annacis Island Shell @ 6:45 (that sound good?)

For the destination to White Rock where are we going? Please.. not white spot..

BCSBADMIN
04-29-2002, 01:58 PM
Just got off the phone with bugs..

He's planning on just hitting the Chevron at No. 5 road and steveston highway.

Don't forget you'll be in the middle of rush hour traffic.

So I'd say pick one point. Either Chevron at Steveston or Shell at Annacis.

Bugs also has to be back in the city by 9pm. So he'll run down, grab a quick coffee and head back into town.

The destination in White Rock is White Mountain on Marine Drive (White Rock beach). The ETA is 7:20-7:30

Jim.

04-29-2002, 02:28 PM
OK :)
so how bout we meet at 5 road steveston hwy Chevron @ 6:45-6:55????? in Richmond...
sound good?

CG
04-29-2002, 03:09 PM
ok here is the plan.

we leave at carter at 6:30, then head towards no5 chevron at steveston, should be there at 6:50, then head down to the second meet spot at the Chevron under the Alex Fraser Bridge by the truck scales (Delta side by the Great Pacific Forum), should be there around 7:20-7:30, then head off to white rock and be there at 7:50 or so. so if you miss the 2 meet spots, then just meet up with us in whiterock, I think jim said White Mountain on Marine Drive (along white rock beach)

Xyban
04-29-2002, 03:39 PM
I'll be @ the chevron in delta (truck scales) @ 7:15 - don't leave without me :p

04-29-2002, 03:45 PM
Sounds like the meeting times are just barely unreachable by me. I am going to heading out there for sure though! I have to go downtown then back to North Van to pick up the bike so I'll probably be able to get to White Rock at around 8:00pm or 8:10pm

I am not totally familiar with Richmond and know nothing about how to get to White Rock. Is there anybody that could either PM me or point me to a www.mybc.com address where I can look up detailed directions to our meeting spots? I will be coming from North Vancouver.

Pager 622-9113
Cell: 721-3351

Thanx guys

How to get to White Mountain Cafe from TimbukTu

If you are coming from #1 HWY - good luck you're on your own (joking) :p
Go over the Port Man bridge (this is the only way I can think of right now)
Take the 176th Street Exit (way faster) - goto 8th Avenue (a long way) - Turn right. (follow till you hit the beach, read down further)

If you are coming from Hwy 91 (Alex Fraser Bridge)
Head south to the Hwy 99 Interchange (take the southbound exit) ie. Hwy 99 South.
If you are coming from the Massey Tunnel (Hwy 99) stay on it.

When you reach 8th Avenue West Exit take it.
You will come to King George Highway (turn left) - southbound
You will then travel to 8th Avenue (turn right) - westbound

Travel along 8th Avenue till you see water (you are now at the beach, but on east beach - you have to go to west beach)
Keep going up and over the hill on 8th Avenue to the other side of the beach. (West beach). Start looking for our bikes and white mountain just as the road flattens... its a little ways down.

(I do not know the exact address for white mountain, but you should see 3 things)

1. Our bikes (pretty apparent if we park visibly)

2. A blue awning on the corner of a T intersection to 8th Avenue (the boathouse restaurant)

3. If you're lucky you'll look across the intersection to White Mountain then you know where you are. (its on the other side of the corner at the T intersection)

Confused yet?

BCSBADMIN

White Mountain is at 14909 Marine Dr. (Don't bother with MyBC.com.. it's wrong.) The road along the beach is Marine Dr. (8th ave becomes Marine Dr.)

Follow Xyban's directions. If you pass Oxford Street (148th) you've gone too far.

Hey all,

It was nice meeting everybody even though I probably missed few of you guys.

First group ride for me since last summer in Finland. And I gotta tell you that it was one big bunch of bikes. There probably weren't as many sportbikes in my hometown as there were today at White Rock.:laughing

Looking forward for the next one..

BCSBADMIN

It was definitely nice to see some new faces.. hopefully we'll see you guys lots more over the summer and get more chances to talk with you.

Candide.. I didn't even know you were from Finland until now. :)

Sweet times boys. My GF loved the first group ride she's been on. All she could say was,"I like the yellow one the best. It's bright!"

Hey, did I miss Bugs? I wanted to hear the boom boom. I got my V-twin fix by riding behind BigJim's TL on the way home though.

Nice to meet everyone new and to see some familiar faces.
