Description:

This past summer I discovered bike hiking, and you should discover it too!

Think Sufferfest, but hiking (...so I guess less hardcore) - 

Anyway, the real bike-hiking trips will start in the summer, but to gauge interest and just get out there and cycle and explore together, I thought it might be fun to head out to the Seymour Demonstration Forest. 11 km of beautiful paved riding in the forest! Perfect for those who can't get away for the entire weekend, but still want to go outside.

Idea would be to meet somewhere in Van and cycle over to the North Shore together and up into Lynn Valley. Have coffee at the Trail's End Cafe... cycle into the Demonstration Forest... get to the dam and fish hatchery. Explore that... maybe eat lunch there, if hungry... cross over to the other side of the river and head back that way. Stop at Lost Lake, throw some rocks into it, do some log hopping, meditate.

Any type of bike should be fine, as long as your tires are not too skinny (mountain bikes are not necessary) - the first part will be paved, the second part will be a gravel road.

Should be nice and mellow.

Hope you'll join!
