This is an inclusive bike ride that's all about showing off good routes for getting around by bike in Maple Ridge. If you’re new to our area, or if you’re one of the many people who bought a bike during the COVID-19 lockdown, this is a great introduction. You may not know it, but chances are there's a bike path in or near your neighbourhood that can connect you to shops, restaurants, and community centres.
Our route takes in downtown Maple Ridge and areas to the west. We'll meet at the Bandstand at Memorial Peace Park, cycle through downtown, take the 122/123 bike routes west to 203rd, south past Westgate into Hammond, east past the hospital toward Haney, and back into downtown, finishing at the family-friendly Witch Craft Pub for refueling and socializing.
This will be a casually paced ride. For legal reasons, we must ride in groups with a maximum size, so it is important to register and not just turn up at the event so we know how many riders to expect.
Helmets are mandatory. Consider bringing water, snacks, sun screen, and, if you are going to the Witch Craft afterwards, a bike lock.
We'll be observing social distancing on the ride. As we gather at the Memorial Peace Park bandstand, please keep 2 meters away from others outside of your group/bubble.
Riders must agree to and sign a Hub waiver form before the ride.
The route is about 13km with no hills and should take about 1 hour.
