Pre-ride report:

Anna and I on the tandem and Nigel did a volunteer pre-ride on Saturday. This is a very flat course, only 400 m of climbing, and half of that is the two trips over the Alex Fraser Bridge. Even though the route doesn't get far from home (for most of you) hopefully it will introduce some new roads and take you to some unfamiliar destinations.

Please be aware that parking is very limited at Port Royal Park early on Saturday mornings. Your best bet is along Star Crescent north of the railway overpass, but be prepared to hunt for a spot and ride to the start.

Two tweaks to the route as a result of the pre-ride: we're now going north on Nordel coming off the Alex Fraser Bridge and going under the SFPR on West Mill Access to pick up the bike route to River Road. This is will avoid the need to cross two lanes of right-turning traffic at the 91 Connector and SFPR intersection. The other tweak fixes the oopsy of going the wrong way down a one-way street in Tsawwassen. That is not normally a good idea!

There is some construction on the route. There may be detours on River Road in Delta. Neither detour is a big deal; they add a couple of hundred meters at the most. There is also construction on 52nd St in Tsawwassen which sends cars down our bike path; be careful there. The bike route through Tsawwassen between 52nd St and Beach Grove is fairly intuitive; just keep your eyes open for bike route signs.

Hopefully the weather will be nice and there will be a good view of the North Shore mountains, Mount Baker, and the Vancouver Island peaks. Sometimes it's nice to look at hills instead of climbing them. So keep your head up!
