An Epic Ride just across the border
- Meeting location is the Tim Hortons just before the crossing (7:30am)
1255 Sumas Way, Abbotsford, BC V2S 8H2
We start in Sumas just past Aldergrove. 2 km from the US Border. Ride the rolling course that winds through spectacular vistas and finally ascends this magnificent mountain. The climb is a grade familiar to those of you riding the North Shore Mountains. But it ends in 5 km of switchbacks that will remind you of the climbs you have seen in the Alps!
There is a stop for sandwiches and photos at the Summit, then roll back to Canada.
The total ride Sumas to Baker return is 156km. There is a pick up point at Maple Falls just before the village of Glacier. This shorter loop is 96km. Riders on this loop will have to be ready to roll as the group comes through.
The start time at Sumas is 7:30 am. Start at Maple Falls is about 8:45-9am.The ride is supported by a follow vehicle with replenishments and can take extra wheels etc.
