Come ride with Malcolm and RD over Sumas Mountain and along the Chilliwack River. It’s an easy ride with some great views and big tree shade in the woods. We’ll stop at the top of Sumas Mountain to enjoy the view then head for some gravel and maybe some mud along the Chilliwack River. Waltz along Elk View Road before ending the ride at Duke’s pub to socialize over food and a responsible beverage.
At Bruce’s Country Market we’ll meet and have a safety meeting before departure. We’ll stop at various points / road junctions to regroup. No one left behind.
