A few comments about this route:

- If we had started an hour earlier, we
could have had lunch at the Cafe in Acme which closes at 3:00pm
-- we arrived at 2:45 and they weren't seating anyone at that
time (or we could have simply not stopped for so long at the previous
- There is nothing open later on Sunday afternoon in Lynden. We had to do a self-control. Options: use the border crossing as a control, ride on Saturday, change the route to go straight over to SR 539 as there would probably be a few places open on that route (like the Starbucks which I occasionally ride to).
- After looking at the route on the map, it occurred to me that it would be appropriate to have an information control on Mosquito Lake Rd as there is a shorter route by continuing on SR 542 and down SR 9.
- The route could be adjusted slightly to start/finish at Wendel's. Obviously, the Senior's Hall wasn't open -- we expected that and planned to use the Esso station (which we did) but most of us met up at Wendel's before the start anyway.
