The Vancouver Bicycle Club does many fun events throughout the year - and the annual Picnic is always a highlight! The Picnic is at Vancouver Lake Park: Heron Shelter. A delicious array of food will be served around 12:30pm. Join us on a ride BEFORE the Picnic! 

This ride will be 47 miles and have TWO pace group options!
Max = 18mph - Lead by Sally
Max = 16mph - Lead by D2

Head east from Vancouver Lake Park - catching the RACC route to Clark College and out to New Seasons for a rest stop at mile 14. After the break, head north - taking lots of back roads to eventually get to rest stop #2, Salmon Creek Starbucks at mile 33. From there, riders will head south - 
eventually connecting to the popular Frenchman's Bar route back to Vancouver Lake.
