New Ride: The Pitt Pedal

We’ve got a new ride this summer: The Pitt Pedal! This COVID-compatible ride on Sunday, August 23 highlights routes around Pitt Meadows, with city and country paths for a route that surrounds nearly all of the city.

We’ll start by meeting on the south side of Pitt Meadows Heritage Hall at 2pm. From there we’ll get onto Harris Road south, past the Pitt Meadows Museum, library, City Hall and Spirit Square. Then we’ll take Hammond east to within a stone's throw from Maple Ridge onto a bike/ped pathway, south to Airport Way, west to Bonson Road past Osprey Village and onto the dike trail by the Fraser River. We’ll then follow this trail past the airport to the Pitt River, then north to Ferryslip Road and Kennedy Road onto the bike/ped path next to Lougheed Highway. We’ll take this through MacLean Park onto McMyn Road past Harris and the Pitt Meadows Art Gallery and back to Heritage Hall once again, with optional end-of-ride socializing a short distance south at Foamer’s Folly Brewing.

Our route takes us past:

  • Pitt Meadows Museum 
  • West Coast Express station and Park and Ride 
  • Pitt Meadows Public Library 
  • City Hall 
  • Spirit Square 
  • Katzie Slough 
  • Osprey Village 
  • South Bonson Community Centre 
  • Fraser River 
  • Pitt Meadows Regional Airport 
  • Pitt River 
  • Meadow Vale Shopping Centre 
  • Pitt Meadows Art Gallery

The route is about 20km with no hills and should take about 1.5 hours. (map)

This will be a 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. Please note that the dike trail is unpaved.

To register, please visit our registration page on Eventbrite.
