"Maple Ridge 101" Ride Returns!

We're bringing back our "Maple Ridge 101" bike ride for 2019!

This ride is about showcasing bike routes for making practical trips around our city. You may be surprised how easy it is to get from your neighbourhood to popular destinations for shopping, dining, business, and recreation by bike.

The route is unchanged from last year. Our route takes in downtown Maple Ridge and areas to the west. We call it "Maple Ridge 101" as it uses some of our most-used paths and goes near a lot of popular destinations. We'll meet at the Bandstand at Memorial Peace Park, cycle through downtown, head past the hospital toward Hammond, then head north past Westgate, turn east, and head back into downtown, finishing at the Witch Craft Pub for refueling and socializing. Nearly the entire route is on separated bike lanes, marked bike lanes, or signed bike routes. Here's the map again:

This year's ride takes place on Sunday, June 30 at 2pm. This is an inclusive, casually paced ride. For legal reasons, we must ride in groups with a maximum size, so it is important to register and not just turn up at the event so we know how many riders to expect. To register, visit the event page on Eventbrite.
