Route Description:
 
IMPORTANT: Please show up at 5:15, we roll at 5:30 (not the usual 6)

This Monday night (9/13) we revisit Vancouver Lake and Frenchman's Bar. We have a couple new riders to our group that have requested this ride. So let's do another fav of ours.

This is a shorter ride than the typical 10 miles. So we'll take a longer break than usual at Frenchman's Bar. Bring something fun. Frisbee? Hacky Sack? Juggling? Card tricks? Stand up comedy? If I make use of my new clipless pedals y'all might have some impromptu comedy before we even get to Frenchman's!

Riding back to Vancouver Lake the sun will be behind us. No sun in the eyes on the way back. Yay! I might have actually planned it that way.

Parking. I believe that there is a fee to park at Vancouver Lake. But it's free at the small parking area noted in the map as the start point. On Google Maps you can search for "Frenchman's Bar Hiking Trail Parking Area", or "Vancouver Lake Rowing Club" which is adjacent to start point. There's usually plenty of parking just south of this small lot. Alternatively you could park at Vancouver Lake and bike to the start. Or park at the parking lot at the southwest corner of our route half way between Vancouver Lake and Frenchman's (also free), and bike to the start. 


REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.  Contact me if you have any difficulty.  Our registration collects your waiver signature AND emergency contact information.  Important!

Please arrive 15 minutes early to be part of the announcements and safety briefing. 
Bring a bike in good working order (pump up those tires), wear your helmet (REQUIRED), and tuck in some water and a tube that fits your wheel.
This is a no rider left behind ride meaning that we will travel at the pace of the slowest rider.
