Well lets setup a route so we can incl everyone if possible. any suggestions? I'm not too hyped about going on marine dr in west van, i assume u guys are assuming the part past 25th st and heading to horshoebay; true, the roads there are twisties, but if you take in the fact that there are tar fillings (those shiny black strips you see on the asphalt, which can make ur tire slip likes its on butter) and the roads are sooo small and all the corners are blind... i dun think i like going there. but if its just for a slow ride (some people breaking in there bikes you know...) its not bad. I had a very bad experience with that piece of road... It was nite time, and i had nowhere to go, so just thoght i go on marine dr to horshoebay hav a smoke, and come back home. It was fine, and i was doing a more sprited riding because no one is on that road. I was during a corner, leaning down abit, and suddenly the back end starts to slide on me with out any warning, and i wassnt going THat fast..... and after about 2 sec, the tire catch grip again, even thou it was just about 2 sec, i was already on the wrong side of the road, and almost hitting the concrete curb, right behind the curb is a 5 storie cliff.....
When i go back there again sometimes latere during the day, and look more carefullly into that corner, i saw a focking big line of tar filling strip..... but anyways, i just want you guys to becareful if you ever headed that way, watch for the blind corners(there mite be a transit bus on the other side), and watch out for black tar strips.....:cool


Oh yeah...so about the ride on friday, me and LE is free the whole day, so i think we are pretty flexible, probably going to start riding in the morning about 10pm? and go somewhere further for lunch. so what time are you guys free???

Hey guys. Mick and I are planning to ride up to Squamish in the morning (10am???). Have lunch or breakfast down there and head back towards Vancouver at around noon. We should be back by 1pm.

I was thinking .. if there are late comers .. we can hook up in the afternoon in Vancouver or wherever (1pm-3pm). Where we go after that is up to you guys. Mick and I were planning to ride down to Whiterock? We could go down to Harrison as well if you guys want? I have no idea. I just want enjoy the sun.
