Permanent 74 - Happy Elephant

204 km



This route was originally a reworking of Bob Koen's 2008 permanent # 26 "Bean Brothers", which in turn was a reworking of Manfred Kuchenmuller's 2008 "Flying Beaver" LM Spring 200. Happy Elephant was revised in January 2019. The route has changed significantly from its earlier incarnations. [Eric F, November 2010 and January 2019]

November, 2010: Eric Fergusson designed this route. Here is his 2019 revised RideWithGPS map, etc.



January 15, 2011: Mini Report in newsletter by Ryan Golbeck

Route note from Eric Fergusson, January 2011: There's been an intersection modification at 149.0 km. The cross street is no longer marked "Telegraph Trail" (Bear Right). Turn right on 198 Street ( I think it was 198) - it soon becomes Telegraph Trail. If you miss it, turn right on 192 Street and you'll rejoin the route (left on bike path) at Golden Ears Way just after the Surrey/Langley waste transfer depot.
