December TGV
Tour of Greater Vancouver - Permanent #30 Report
by Gary Sparks

Just wanted to let you know - I rode the Tour de Greater Vancouver on Saturday, Dec 5. I thought I'd get my December ride in early while I had good weather. It took me 10 hr, 57 min. I started in the dark and finished at dusk. I had the same experience described in your first report for this route. It took me almost 2 hours to ride the 25 km from the Patullo Bridge to the end. I also got confused with the SkyTrain bike path. It's slow going, rough in places and on Saturday, there were quite a few people walking the path. The rest of the route (with the obvious exception of River Road / South Fraser Way) was great and took me to some new places.
