Althrought the
Pandemic and

lots of limited availability given the fires.

--- Post pre-ride notes ---

The pre-ride was beautiful and I (Étienne) loved it, but it was probably a little harder than most who "just want to finish" a 600 might want.
That being said, it's still very rideable as a challenge route - - and I would encourage any rider who wants some beautiful roads and scenery to take this on! There's slightly more gravel on the challenge route.

Both routes have the final Hope/Othello section. This is steep. Be mentally prepared that after riding for 300 some odd kilometers, you will be sent up a road with poor pavement that will test your legs and resolve. I had to stop and question my life choices on this hill. But it was totally worth it for a new road and a fun ride. You might disagree - tell me after the ride!

--- Construction Notes ---

  • Iron Workers Memorial construction, cross on East side. You can take some of the bike path now though! Watch for gravel.
  • Small detour on trans canada trail after bridge
  • Some paving work on Barnet Hwy
  • Sidewalk paving in coquitlam on Prairie Ave
  • Sidewalk paving on 96 Ave in Fort Langley
  • Sidewalk paving on Lougheed highway (usually right lane is rideable, just watch for debris

--- Other notes ---

The current proposed route has less climbing than the Cache Creek 600. You have a couple sleep options - Hope, Chilliwack, and Abbotsford. Take a look at the map and make a decision according to how far you want to go. Everything is busy these days so book in advance!

I've done a couple re-routes on classic roads simply to make sure there's enough services for riders who want to ride during the day and the night. This route adds a bit of navigational complexity, at the expense of less climbing :-)
FYI I've called the 24h Chevrons en route (e.g. Hope, by Hwy 1 in langley). You will not be able to go inside them after 10pm, but they will happily serve you out of a window at whatever hour of the morning.

Please note that BC mask rules have been re-instated, and to ride according to the ride rules.

Sorry for the repetition of roads from the summer 400, basically the original route ( was removed as an option due to wildfires and mud slides!
