Gary's Route Notes
|Note: This is not the official route sheet. Ride organizers may make last minute changes because of road closures or other problems. The route sheet you receive at the start of the ride is the official one.|
Notes from Gary: The entire route is within Canada. It starts at 4th and Boundary Rd ( 7AM) and goes as far east as the Yellow Barn. The "Triple 'S'" is code for three times over Sumas Mtn.
This is a route that climbers will enjoy. Nothing particularly long, but there are a few short ( 1-2 km) sections that are rather steep. Lots of great descents and wonderful views of the valley. Total elevation gain will likely be in the 8000' range. At the present time ALL the controls are information controls. Be sure to have a pen with you. There will be NO support at controls. The Yellow Barn, the turn around control has a excellent deli/cafe as does the new IGA in Ft. Langley. Riders will find numerous convenience stores along the route. Pre-registration on PONY would be appreciated.
