2013 Social Ride - Vancouver Bakeries and Cafés
Blue skies made for a spectacular social ride. We could have cycled almost anywhere and done anything and the riders would have been happy. We took the “tourists in our own town” approach, following the Seaside bike route along English Bay, a trip around Stanley Park, followed by lunch at Musette Caffe. Located in the alley near Burrard and Drake, this café is filled with bicycle memorabilia.
After lunch we followed the shoreline to UBC, dropped off some bike parts at the Bike Kitchen, and visited the blue whale skeleton in the Beaty Biodiversity Museum. It was really cool! Susan Allen took us on Old Marine Drive, a quiet stretch with a great lookout. From 41st and Camosun we followed Salish Trail for some easy “off-roading” back to Marine Dr hill, took in the beautiful views along Spanish Banks and finished with pastries from La Baguette & l'Échalote on Granville. It was wonderful day!
