This summer the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition and Mountain Equipment Co-op have been presenting the Great Rides bike series.

The goal is to invite riders from across the Lower Mainland to take park in group rides and discover new routes and outing destinations along the way. According to the VACC, the ride markings remain in place for future riders as well.

The next Great Ride is taking place in Pitt Meadows is particularly special as it coincides with the Honeyland Bees & Blueberry Festival. The Great Ride participants will have a chance to stop by and enjoy a picnic along the way. You can register online today for the August 15th ride.

I have a family pass to give away for this event which includes ride registration for one reader, their spouse (guest) and as many children under 16 as they can handle.

To enter, leave a comment on this post to express your interest in the ride or re-tweet this link. The winner will be announced Monday August 10th and please make sure that if you enter, you are free to use this prize and participate on the 15th.

    This is just great. I love both the idea of Great Rides and a festival involving Blueberries! Unfortunately I’m going camping on 15th and will have to pass.

    Thank you for the offer for the pass though.

    BTW, the picture is beautiful.
