Fraser Valley Flatlander
I rode solo.
There were no "visits across the border" along Zero Avenue this time. I saw 2 US border vehicles but no Canadian border vehicles.
The large gravel patches at the bottom of 264th St have all been beautifully paved. Nice and smooth! What a nice surprise!
I kept my full finger gloves on till noon. By then I was in Ft Langley, and my App said it was 19 degrees but it felt waaaay hotter.
The really rough train tracks on 64th Avenue approaching 264 have been beautifully redone. Amazingly smooth!
Traffic on Townshipline was busier than usual, all the way from 272 to Mt Lehman. Not sure what was going on.
By the time I got to Yellow Barn, I was really overheating. Weather App there said it was 29 degrees. Sure felt hot!
I only went to the bathroom three times on this ride (might be a record for me), twice in establishments (Birchwood and Yellow Barn). Those were the only places I went inside, and yes, I wore a mask.
I felt like I finished strong. Michel thought I looked beat up at the end. I sure was hot and probably a bit dehydrated.
No flats, no mechanicals.
It was a gorgeous sunny day! Doesn’t get much better for a Fall ride.
