Ready Set Pedal

A charity bike ride has changed my life :)

So you’re planning a bike ride this coming weekend…

… in that case I HIGHLY recommend you map out your route using UBC’s Cycling Route Planner (for Metro Vancouver)!

My friend Kathy always maps out our rides – and it is so reassuring to have a plan when you are exploring new areas on your bike AND want to be safe and stick to designated bike routes!

I happen to be planning a ride this coming Saturday and I’ve decide to conquer Deep Cove BY BIKE! 🙂

Those delicious honey doughnuts are worth riding for!!

I’m comparing the routes by this site suggested when I select “shortest path route” vs “least traffic pollution” and it appears that the latter adds a further 5km (one way) to the ride.

That’s a GOOD THING when you are training for a super-long ride AND makes me happy because I hate cycling on busy roads with lots of cars!

Here’s some more info on this BRILLIANT service – http://buzzer.translink.ca/
