There are so many bicycle groups in the Lower Mainland, too many to talk about at once.
Here are a couple I will post more in the future, as I like to showcase each one.
The BC Randonneurs Cycling Club has many events through out the year. The Pacific Populaire is a perfect introduction to the sport. You may have seen them cycling through your neighbourhood. A wonderful site to see. Randonneuring is a great way to spend an afternoon, bicycling, touring viewing the different sites of Vancouver while meeting new people.
It truly is an amazing ride with the tree covered streets of Vancouver and open spaces along Spanish banks.
There are beautiful badges and pins you can earn doing randonneuring events.
