Weather seems fine for Sat., feel like riding those nice twisty roads in the area.

Route: Starting from S. Van., taking Marine Dr., going thru New Westminster, then Coquitlam, Port Moody, Belcarra. We stay in the area till we please, then move on to Maple Ridge and / or Mission.

Meeting time and spot: I'm showing up at around 1:45, and leave at 2, at Chevron on Marine and Main. Come with enough gas that you can run for at leat 100km. There's no gas station in Belcarra.

We'll stop in Port Moody and meet with tlax69 and other friends in the area at McDonald's on St. John's Rd. in Port Moody at 2:30 (or maybe a bit later than that).
Pace: Slow. 10-20km/h over the speed limit mostly. Newbs very welcome. Fast riders are welcome too, maybe they can sweep the speed traps?

How about McDonald's on St. John's Rd. or Starbucks on Ioco Rd. at 2:45? I know that McD has a parking, but I'm not sure about Starbucks. If you're from the area, you must know a lot of nice roads to ride there, I guess?

For Belcarra, I'm thinking a few access roads for BC Hydro, and there's no lights there except a few stop signs. I usually stay there for a while and enjoy tight curves back and forth.

S2S isn't really my taste, I find their speed limit is set really low, not to metion too many speed traps. Lots of contstruction zone with 50km/h or otherwise only 80km/h. Too many cars on weekends. I don't find it fun there unless I overspeed, make illegal passings, and pissing off cagers. It's just not my style.

If I travel that distance, I'd definitely go to Mt. Baker instead. But I was in the US last weekend, so I'll keep it for some other time (No, I'm not going to store my bike).

Where's Harriso?

Yea, we'll see how quickly we get bored, but we can always move on to Golden Ears in Maple Ridge and / or roads around Hayward Lake in Mission.

Where and at what time shall we meet?

Oh boy I do'nt know any of them. Can you give me the address so I can search on map? If it's not too far from McDonald's on St. John's Rd., I prefer there since I can get there without looking map. And at exactly what time?

Oh I see. It was funny that nobody showed up at both meeting spots. A friendly guy on a scooter (I guess around 250cc) showed up at McDo, I thought he was for the ride lol. I wanted to see how his scooter handles the curves, but he was actually there for food. I didn't see ANY sport/cruiser rider either in Belcarra.

The weather was ok, just really humid. Roads were nice and dry most part though. Maybe I'll do the same or Mt. Baker next weeked, stay tuned...
