The Vancouver Bicycle Club does many fun events throughout the year - and the annual Picnic is always a highlight! The Picnic is at Frenchman's Bar! A delicious array of food will be served around 12:30pm. Join us on a ride BEFORE the Picnic! 

Head east from Frenchman's Bar - catching pieces of the RACC route through downtown and out to New Seasons for a rest stop at mile 16. After the break, head north - taking lots of back roads to eventually get to rest stop #2, Salmon Creek Starbucks at mile 35. From there, riders will head south - 
eventually connecting to the popular Frenchman's Bar route back to the start and more importantly: The Picnic!.
