July 14 is Bastille Day!

Come join BC Randonneurs for our tribute to the spirit of "le Tour" on Saturday July 14! Start 7am at Bean Around the World Cafe at Seymour Parkgate Mall. Finish at Mt Seymour Alpine ski area (200km later). The finish is approximately 14km all downhill back to the start. The route leading up to Mt Seymour is fairly moderate in nature. There are some hills, notably past the Stave Lake Dam, however almost half the elevation gain is in the last 20km of the ride. Keep the powder dry for the final Hors Catagorie ascent! #bcrandonneurs #hcclimb

An informal post ride gathering will be a short (downhill) distance away at the Raven Pub on Deep Cove Rd (head straight east on Mt Seymour Parkway until Dollarton/Deep Cove Rd). The Raven Pub has generously offered a 10% discount to all participants. There's incentive!

Please note: for non-BC Randonneurs members a BC Randonneurs membership is required for all brevet events. Online membership ($10) is here: https://ccnbikes.com/#!/events/bc-randonneurs-cycling-club-membership-2018 Alternately the membership can be paid in person at the start. Event fee is $15 at the start.

Also, working front and rear lights are mandatory for all BC Randonneurs brevets (including this one). You will need a pen with you as there are information controls requiring recording the time of day and answering a question on the Control Card to verify your passage along pre-determined points on the route. A completed brevet card within the time parameters is required to be considered a finisher. The overall time limit is a very reasonable 13.5hrs.
