Noon Celebration Ride - Fruit Valley Express - 12PM (VAN)


23.2 miles






1050 ft


Ride Type:



Cancellation Guidelines:

Rain at start or Wind > 10 mph



I will ride a 14 mph pace on the flats (slower on the uphills, faster on the downhills).  Faster and slower riders should plan on bringing a map and finding their own way.  Starts in downtown Vancouver.  Heading east brings you past Ft Vancouver Park and out to Blandford Ave for a little hill climbing.  After winding through residential sections you ride up Lakeshore Ave with views of the Columbia.  A fast downhill takes you to the Salmon Creek Trail and assorted wildlife.  You get another fun downhill at the end of Hazel Dell Ave, then back through residential areas to the start.

Note:  Those doing a ride from River Maiden either before or after this ride might want to park at River Maiden and join us at the top of Blandford about 20 minutes after noon.


Please arrive 15 minutes early to sign up and 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 make sure to print a ride cue sheet, if you need one. Make sure your bike is in good working order. Riders should be able to maintain the stated pace. Please communicate with the leader if you decide to go off route or not return to the start.
