The HUB cycling group is organizing a “Discover Hammond” cycling tour on September 15, 2012. The ride will be led by Ian McLeod, who has an interest in “land use, transportation and civic culture in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland” and writes about these issues on his blog Fraseropolis.com, and who, together with Claus Andrup, recently published the booklet Aesthetic Maple Ridge.
The meeting points for the ride are:
10:00 – Memorial Peace Park (@ blue fountains)
10:20 – Ridge Meadows College on Thorne Ave.
10:45 – coffee break and chat at Stomping Grounds Coffee House at Osprey Village, Pitt Meadows
11:30 – meeting place for Hammond Neighbours: where Katzie reservation road and Wharf Street meet (by Golden Ears Bridge)
After a tour of Hammond of probably about an hour or so, the ride will end in Hammond. Those who wish can ride back to downtown Maple Ridge with us. The distance of the ride from Memorial Peace Park to Hammond is approx. 13 km.
