Inspired by the removal of the Fraser Valley bridge crossing tolls, this ride was designed to cross all the major bridges in the lower mainland. You will traverse 14 bridges, journey through 1 tunnel and visit 12 different cities, all while catching some of the best scenes that the lower mainland has to offer.
Back roads from Matsqui to Fort Langley.
A beautiful mountain road to give you the fill of corners and curves. You will be tired before the road ends.
The road drives along Fraser River from Lytton to Hope. Mighty river, High Mountains, Curving road with moderate traffic; what else can you wish for?
There are many places to stop and take pictures or just drink in the scene. Soul Food.
A nice mix of urban roads including a jaunt through historic Gastown. Great views of Burrard Inlet and Howe Sound along the way.
Lazy Sunday Riding
It was an amazing trip with a little bit of everything from straight to twisting roads through bright yellow fields, red woods and mountains with tons of amazing stops along the way, wild life to view and great little dinners. Once across the ferry to the island there is a whole new scene to enjoy, ocean side rides, amazing towns with goats on a roof and beautiful twisting roads with amazing cliff side views. All though there are good curving roads there are also a few spots closer to the cities that are straighter and don't provide the best views but are more than worth it for all the rest of the amazing scenery.
Touring loop with a twist
Ross is a short but fun road north from 8th
Probably the nicest stretch of highway to ride in Western Canada! The views along the way are amazing - the ocean on one side (Howe Sound) and the mountains on the other. The highway was widened and improved for the 2010 Winter Olympics and it's a joy to ride. Lots of sweeping corners, ups and downs and a few decent straights. There are numerous places to pull over and enjoy the scenery. Lions Bay, Porteau Cove (public washrooms) and Squamish to name a few. But don't let the views distract you; keep your eyes open for the handful of meatheads who drive too quickly on this road.
The Best of British Columbian and Northern US natural beauty set to lakes and mountains. This 500 mile extended version of the famous International Selkirk loop starts at Kootenay Bay and can be easily shortened or extended to suit as it passes back near itself several times over the trip. From Kootenay Bay, we take the 3A south, a wonderful and well liked biker road that offers fantastic views and almost continuous twists and turns. One drawback of this great road is that it can be popular in the summer. This leads us down to the National Border where the road becomes the US2 and leads us first into Idaho, then Washington State at Newport, this route follows the river almost all the way from Sandpoint back to the Canadian border and enjoys fantastic nature and views. As well continue north to Nelson on our amazing journey, after Nelson, we again join the 3A for a fantastic section (and another biker favorite) that takes us up nearly to Mount Brennan and across to New Denver where this extended version of the route takes in more local biking favorites and heads back south to the US again. Simply too much natural beauty and great roads to list, go and try it for yourself! ( Image : Bikers enjoying part of the famous Selkirk Loop ; Credit : Wikipedia )
Great ride. Plains, Canyons, hiway 21 fantastic corners, slogan and Monashee. Fantastic little run.
I like this route as an extended day ride. Probably not suitable for street bikes so much simply because a lot of distance is covered in a day. As a day ride beginning in Canada factor in the border crossing south as 1 hour. Travel via Hwy 5 to Sedro Wooley and begin The North Cascades Scenic Highway to Twisp. The view at Ross Dam is beautiful and Winthrop makes a great halfway spot of the total journey for lunch or coffee and a stretch. Truth be told if you roll up to Twisp there's an independent gas station that makes great knock off sub sandwiches for cheap and gas is also tad cheaper in Twisp.
As you motor on to Oroville and cross back into Canada at Osoyoos and begin south on Hwy 97/3, the scenery is very nice and you forget that 400+ kilometers is in your rear view.
In my opinion the best window for this ride is late July and August because the weather in North Cascades National Park can be unpredictable in spring and fall.
Tip. Always bring rain gear for this trip and stay hydrated.
A wonderfully twisty and hilly road, with very little traffic, and glorious views of the lake most of the time. Most of the road was new pavement. Great corners for carving through, although some are a little deceiving in how tight they are. A lovely summertime ride.
Arguably more fun than Cypress Mountain with a few more bends; this is a nice run to add to your route inside the GVA.
A popular route north of the city. Amazing views and some decent corners. Expect lots of cars and bikes on a nice day. Bring a lunch to enjoy on any of the viewpoints looking down at the city.
A short little detour from North Vancouver to Horseshoe Bay. It's mostly residential with low speed limits but there's spectacular views of the coast and some nice bends.
Ride from Revelstoke B.C. Along Hi-way 23North, to Downie Creek Campground. All new pavement as of today, no centre or side lines as of yet but a great ride along the lake all the way.
Revelstoke, kelowna, Grand Forks, Castlegar, New Denver, Nakusp, Revelstoke.
Good twisties and scenery. Free ferry ride. Watch out for the odd deer. Enjoy.
