Ride safe.

What did you have in mind? Make it in the evening following rush hour, somewhere not-too-inaccessible from the south and I'll do my best to make it. Maybe there are a few others from this area (Bellingham, just across the border). FWIW, I'm gone Monday and Tuesday the first week in May, but will be around after that.

I've been north by car, ferry and thumb, but only up the Cassiar and back by bike. Might do a bit more exploring this summer, but at the moment it looks like life in general might interfere.

Post here or email: markharf "at" yahoo "dot" com.

PS: never found anythng mystical about Canadian , but I'm willing to continue investigating just in case.

Now arriving in Vancouver BC (downtown hostel) 4th May and staying 'till the 10th when I carry on North. A face to face info and exchange would be nice but any info on the nicest way up and down by those doing the route or those that have done it would be much appreciated.

Ride safe.

How about the Keg on Granville Island? Easy to find and lots of parking after 6 pm.

Anytime is good for me, as I remember it, the best way from the Downtown YoHo to Granville Island is on that little ferry. Ride safe.

Who is coming from where? And by what means? I can take the bike, although I live in the West End. Keg is fine. Southbound on Burrard bridge, right exit to 4th, right and right and straight. Puts you under the bridge. Hang a left at the lights. Keg is on your left as you get onto the "island".

So 7? I'll be on a red RT.

I'll be there as close to 7 as I can manage. Anyone else from south of the border?

Looking forward to it!

Consider it a "scouting mission".
