Splat & I had planned to go for a ride around Bowen Island, but the rainy weather altered our plans a bit, and we headed out toward Mission instead, trying to run from the rain.
Despite the weather, it was a really good ride. All in all, we did about 180 km. Unfortunately, there were no good pictures from the ride.
We started at Hastings & Rupert, headed east along Hastings, Barnet Highway, Lougheed Highway, up Dewdney trunk road, messed about some other roads in the Mission area, hit Rolley Lake (past the monastery / meditation centre) the Stave Lake Dam (I didn't know it was a museum!) http://www.bchydro.com/recreation/ma...nland5361.html
After that we stopped for lunch in Mission, hopped across the Albion ferry (bikes get priority loading - woo-hoo!) through Fort Langley, and then back across the Port Mann bridge (boo! Hiss!)
All in all a really good ride.
[EDIT:] Oh yeah, and I waved to cows along the way!
