Back by popular demand, maybe the most perfect loop ride you could do. Mostly in shade, we circle a city but are never in it – we go along river dykes, creek bed and wet lands. Wonderful views. We’ll side trail to a park for byo lunch in deep shade by a water lily covered lake – last year Elisabeth saw a bear! Hard pack gravel and flat but for the paved uphill to lunch. Meet 8:30 a.m. Edaleen Dairy on the Guide Meridian. Park in the gravel lot. Carpool if possible. Golden Ears bridge will be crossed to get to our trailhead (modest fee). Pass- ports.
BIKE: WeGoPoCo BC. Perfect weather on a perfect ride with maybe the perfect size group of 11 happy bicyclists. Flat and hardback, primarily in shade with stellar views of rivers and mountain valleys. Lunch in a Regional Park under deep shade with a lake so thick with waterlilies, a passerby thought it was a meadow. Definitely a top notch ride of 23 miles. Some of us think we might have to squeeze this ride in again in October to enjoy autumn color and a waterfront pub lunch when we finish, tbd.
Some folks said they did not get their MBC Group List short notice reminder e-mail that I send out on 7/30. Please remember that all tjb BIKE club rides are every Thursday, mid March to mid Oct. The full summer listing for tjb BIKE Thursdays was posted June 22 in our Summer MBC Rambler (very last pages). tj…@frontier.com Tom & Janet Boyhan
