MEC Summer Century Bike Ride comes to the streets of Metro Vancouver

Dec 19 2017, 11:34 am

MEC Vancouver is hosting the second of two inexpensive organised group rides that tour through the beautiful Lower Mainland areas of Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge on Sunday, August 24.

The route is an open road loop that starts and ends at the event village located at Pinetree Community Centre in Coquitlam. The ride has two route options: 50km (elevation of 634m) and 100km (elevation of 1867m).

Entry to the Century Ride is $35 and includes four aid stations (offering water, electrolyte, bananas and mechanical assistance), mobile first aid and MEC mechanics on hand to address any issues you may have. Complimentary drinks and snacks for all participants will be provided. Register online today.

“The goal with MEC Century Ride is to offer our beginner and advanced riders alike a challenging but rewarding organized ride through the lower mainland,” said Nick Hastie, Century Ride Race Director. “We hope to see a range of riders on August 24 to tackle a new route that branches out into MEC member communities of Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge’

Back in May, MEC’s Spring Century ride in Vancouver saw over 200 riders complete the course that lead them through the hills of northern Coquitlam, Anmore and Belcarra and into the bustling hub of Port Moody. With the Gran Fondo fast approaching, this could be the perfect warm up ride to stretch those legs in preparation!
