Group Ride: July 15th, 2010

  • Leave at 6:30pm from the Mountain Equipment Co-op store on Main Street
  • Ride through the Lower Lynn area (between Lynn Creek and Seymour River) to Capilano University and back down
  • Lots of obstacles for cyclists: highway with about 8 on and off ramps, 2 creeks, 4 arterial roads - all in a small area
  • What to watch for: new bike lane on Main St, planned bike route around Main St/Mountain Hwy intersection, planned bike route on Orwell St, planned bike lanes around upcoming development on Fern St, bridge underpasses, current access to Capilano U and potential improvements, route along Hwy 1 off/on ramp
  • Depending on interest and time we could then head east on Dollarton Hwy or west on Keith Rd

  • Only Dave and I showed up for the ride. Bill dropped by to chat but could not join us on the ride. We checked out several of the Hot Spots (Bridge Ambleside/Park Royal and Spirit Trail at 13th/West Van) then opted to wait for those more closely associated with the Village Loop trail on later ride. Instead we rode up the west shore of the Capilano to the Fullerton Ave bridge, across the trail to Tatlow, walked up the "Chicken Walk" and rode Keith to the connector trail at 23rd, stopped and visited Bill at his place, tried his electric assist bike, then rode up Lloyd to the UL trail to Westview, across to 25th and along my route to William and 29th. A lot of topics were discussed and issues uncovered - fodder for some more pages on the Wiki. It was a good ride. - Jay MacDonald
