Default Ladner to Surrey Bike path.

Nice views, mostly flat, good family ride, and some fresh ocean breezes.
I parked at the foot of 72nd in Ladner and biked to the rail bridge in Surrey.It was a 26km return trip. Here are some shots of the views.




Off to the north Vancouver shimmers in the heat ( unlike today )


As you can see the tide was out this day. I'll have to check the tide tables and pick a day to do it again when the water is in. Still , it made for a good ride.

Hey, Russ!
When the tide is in you'll get a lot more bird action. Spring and Fall are great for the migratory birds. In winter the eagles, hawks and other birds of prey are out in full force, plus clouds of sandpipers if you are lucky. Its their anual wintering grounds here. Every few years the rare snowy owl appears!

I love this path. I just moved to Ladner, so it is a stone's throw away from home-yay! You can actually take it all the way from Tsawwassen, if you like, from Boundary Bay Regional Park; not sure how long that would make the trip. It's perfect for good weather days when one doesn't feel like slogging up hills.

Nice photos-we saw killdeer last time we were there, they were making a huge racket. 8)

The cycle path from Boundary Bay towards White Rock, not quite, is a beautifully scenic route. A path leading north just east of Highway 91 is fun as well.
