Frenchman's Social (12-14mph) / RL Shawn (Vancouver) 10AM

On schedule for 10AM start - no changes

Is it just my imagination or are there no white or dark fluffy things in the sky?!

: 32.4 miles
Pace: 12-14 mph
Terrain: Minor (Yay!)
Elevation: 569 feet
Ride Type: Group



We start at 112th and Burton Safeway, traveling to Vancouver Lake and Frenchman's Bar and return. After a short burst of 4.6% eg, it's mostly flat with a few brief moments of less than 3% eg. According to Ride w GPS. Totally my kind of ride! We'll probably hover around 14mph most of the time on flat terrain (95% of the ride). But if anyone needs to drop to 12mph, no problem - we stay together! 



- an extra tube that fits your tire & a pump that fits your tube
- water
- snack
- warm clothes! It's early and forecast says bbrrrr!


All registered riders are welcome to join and may depart at any time to ride their own pace and distance; please let the ride leader know before you leave the group. Other RLs are welcome to add another pace/route from this location.


Registration is required and almost always free to both members and non-members. Please scroll to the bottom of this page to register for this event.


Please check this page 2 hours before the ride start. I'll note any ride changes to start time, location start, or complete cancelations at least 2 hours prior to the ride start. Any changes will be posted in red text at the top of this page. I rarely cancel due to rains or cold (unless frost, icy, snowy). However, I will cancel during strong winds.


  • Please arrive 15 minutes early to be a part of the announcements and safety briefing.
  • Riders are expected to have read the Safe Riding Policy and be familiar with the Ride Style Definitions.
  • Please direct questions to the ride leader or Road Captain.
  • Helmets are required. Lights (front and rear), RoadIDs and cell phones are recommended.
  • Please complete an ABC check prior to arriving at the start (air, brakes, chain and crank). And a quick check once again at the start.
  • Remember - we want to be awesome representatives for cycling and spread a love for our great sport locally by obeying all traffic laws and riding in a safe and courteous manner. Ride safely and have fun!
