Note 8 AM start. Daylight savings change the weekend before, March 12.

Welcome to the first 200 km ride of the season! If you rode this brevet before, this years will use the exact same route. Even the volunteers at the controls will be the same. The route rivals ‘The Flatlander’ for lack of elevation gain.

There are 5 controls, 3 of them staffed.

The first 'info' control is at the top of Spanish Banks Hill @ UBC, don’t speed past. The next one is at Diplomat Bakery in Steveston.

The Tswwassen control will be staffed by Nigel P at the approximate half way point. It's 500m away from a Gas Station that has M/F washrooms and a store.

We again have a special volunteer at the Tim Hortons on 96th Ave to stamp your Control Card, Allison Voth daughter of Larry Voth. She’d like to honour her Dad once more by giving back to the sport that gave him so much enjoyment.

Nigel and I did the pre-ride, the most notable difference is the poor condition of almost every road. Many deep potholes, the sort that destroy rims, not just cause flats. Also a lot of sand that can make you lose traction, at the worst possible time! 2km from the finish there is a left hand turn across Barnet Hwy @ a pedestrian crossing. Riders will be tired and strongly recommended to trigger the signal. The finish is about 3km from the start along the Burnaby Mountain Urban Trail, it’s downhill if you need to collect your car or use Skytrain. The Hop & Vine Taphouse will be expecting us.

It's not mandatory, but it would help the volunteers if you added your name on Randopony and purchased a BC Randonneurs membership on CCN.
