Last Update: New departure time is 12:30 PM from GYMC. Radar is all over the road. My Vancouver friends say that if you choose not to ride because of the threat of rain, you will never ride. And so we ride.
First Update: Rain was forecast, but things seem to be changing (we really do need some rain though!). This ride may go ahead if we get a ‘light rain’ as long as there is no lightning.
The plan is to keep the ride more local in case we need to cut it short, we won’t be far from home. In the past, we have also adjusted start times to let the rain pass. If that works for Sunday, we may do it again rather than cancelling outright – we’ll see. Grey forecast also reduces local multi use path traffic, which is the best time for us to use this route.
The route is the original (and famous) 2019 BGR, but in reverse with a few additional discoveries. Come out and be astounded at how much multi surface riding is in GCC’s backyard! Bring money for a coffee stop and tail lights are a good idea too.
Load the route on your bike computer if you have one, here’s how.
