Description:

So Ive been wanting to get a group of mountain biking buddies together to ride some trails on the North Shore for a while now (and potentially in Squamish and Whistler in the future). Thought id see what kind of interest there was in the VOC for this sort of thing. 

The plan will be to meet at the top of Mountain Hwy in North Van at the gate/kiosk area near at the top of the road. We will probably just go for a 2 to 3 hour ride on trails that are a good level for everyone in the group. 

If you want to join but dont have a bike, you might want to consider renting a bike Friday evening and returning it Saturday afternoon. Then you dont need to deal with the faff of renting the bike Saturday morning. 

At this point, Im not sure how many people have bike racks on their cars but there are multiple buses that bring you near the top of Mountain Hwy so I will be heading up there no matter what. Will probably be taking the 210 from Burrard Stn in downtown Vancouver. 

If you want to join, shoot me an email with your riding experience, sign up on this trip page and/or show up to the VOC BBQ on Thursday evening to discuss the details of the trip and see if we can figure out some rides for people.

Cheers!
