Comments 58 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The BC Bike Race July 2nd – July 9th is a 7-day cycling adventure that will take riders from the North Shore, to Vancouver Island, down the Sunshine Coast and up to Whistler. From ferry crossings to mountain passes, cyclists will go through places like Nanaimo, Cumberland, Powell River, and Squamish on their daily rides.

As a gold sponsor of the event, the seven35 development in North Vancouver by Adera has offered up a prize pack for one of my readers. seven35 is the first multi-family LEED for Homes platinum development in Canada and was certified BuiltGreen Gold. This green building and double-certified sustainability “first” in Canada.

Aside from being built green, the homes feature everything from a bicycle washing station, motion-sensor light switches and water-efficient irrigation. Featuring native plant species and numerous water features, they’re also located along the entrance to the Trans Canada Trail, and nearby Mosquito Creek.

The seven35 presentation centre is located at 735-15th Street West, North Vancouver. You can find out more about Adera’s developments by following them on Facebook on Twitter.

The prize pack offered up by seven35 includes a gift card for The District (value $100) in Lonsdale and a Helly Hansen rain jacket from the BC Bike Race (value $120).

To enter to win the gift card and the jacket I’d like to know what you love about the North Shore. From Grouse Mountain’s views to gelato at the Quay, events like the BC Bike Race, or kayaking in Deep Cove. You can also enter to win by posting the following on Twitter:

    I love the Lonsdale area, the great trails and the gorgeous North Shore mountains!

  2. JenFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 1:56pm PDT

    Where else can you get great shopping, gorgeous beaches and spectacular mountains all in one spot? The North Shore is awesome 🙂

  3. Tyler IngramFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 1:56pm PDT

    I love Lynn Canyon and the suspension bridge. I love the variety of trails around the northshore that include Cypress, Grouse, Seymour, Deep Cove and more.

  4. AnneFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 1:57pm PDT

    I love to enjoy a coffee & a ham/cheese croisant from Thomas Haas while watching for seals at the dog park nearby. (just off Fell Ave)

  5. IanivFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 2:02pm PDT

    Coffee and pastries with my family at Moja Coffee on the weekend and then shopping at Park Royal.

    Oh, and trails, beaches, mountains, etc. 🙂

  6. BradFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 2:03pm PDT

    I really like Lynn Valley.

  7. RachelFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 2:41pm PDT

    I love Thomas Haas!

  8. JulieFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 2:48pm PDT

    Kayaking and Honey’s donuts in Deep Cove!!!

  9. Jessica R.FFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 3:14pm PDT

    My favourite thing about the North Shore is snowshoeing on Seymour Mountain.

  10. JuliaFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 3:35pm PDT

    Just checked out The District menu & love the food+beer offerings especially the creme brulee cheesecake and Thomas Haas chocolate souffle – yum! One of my favourite spots in N.V. is the Maplewood Farm!

  11. Emily HFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 3:57pm PDT

    Grouse Mountain!

  12. ParkerFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 4:22pm PDT

    I love the parks – all of them. I can be in the most beautiful forest within minutes from my front door! WOW

  13. KatieFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 5:06pm PDT

    Beautiful views

  14. Tooth FairyFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 7:00pm PDT

    I love that the North Shore has choices, like Seymour, Grouse and Cypress mountains to choose from. Fun in the summer sun for outings or wintertime sports in the snow!

  15. Vicki CunninghamFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 7:15pm PDT

    I love hiking the Grouse Grind and coming down on the skyride, snowshoeing up to the top of Cypress, beers on the patio at Seymours after a day in the forest, but mostly I love riding the trails. I cut my mountain biking teeth on the Shore and still love nothing more than a day spent shuttling or doing some XC on Seymour or riding up and down Fromme. I *love* mountain biking and I *love* the Shore.

  16. KevinFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 7:51pm PDT

    I love the local mountains, especially Seymour!

  17. JasFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 8:18pm PDT

    Grouse Mountain! The grouse grinde is painful but the view from up top is worth every ache!

  18. AimeeFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 8:24pm PDT

    Best of the North Shore: a paddle up Indian Arm in the winter and a cycle through Seymour Demonstration in the summer.

  19. EnnieFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 9:21pm PDT

    I like the view in North Shore.

  20. Christine MFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 9:56pm PDT

    So much to love! The views, the mountains, the trails, Deep Cove! Summer/Winter – it doesn’t matter, it’s beautiful all year.

  21. Teresa KFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 10:13pm PDT

    Lynn Valley

  22. coleFriday, May 27th, 2011 — 10:21pm PDT

    I love the views from Grouse Mountain!

  26. JulieanneSaturday, May 28th, 2011 — 4:48pm PDT

    Even after moving 23 years ago, when I go over the Second Narrows to go visit, it still feels like I’m going home. 🙂 I visit when I can, but it’s never enough.

  27. DarcySaturday, May 28th, 2011 — 8:29pm PDT

    Deep Cove!

  28. Lori-Vancouver BCSaturday, May 28th, 2011 — 8:30pm PDT

    Harmony Doughnut and Deli — the BEST doughnuts in the lower mainland 🙂 .

  34. MaeSunday, May 29th, 2011 — 1:53pm PDT

    I’d like to move to the Lonsdale area if I can. It’s got a great community feel, it is convenient to get downtown by seabus, and you’re close the local mountains for hiking or winter sports.

  35. CarolSunday, May 29th, 2011 — 7:42pm PDT

    Deep Cove.

  36. TracySunday, May 29th, 2011 — 7:43pm PDT

    Deep cove is a great place to watch shooting stars!

  37. lizSunday, May 29th, 2011 — 7:46pm PDT

    Grouse Mountain and Maplewood Farms are great family activities located on the north shore.Also gotta love carribean days and the seabus rides plus lusso baby,sj foods & the kingston grill.Love it!

  41. Maxwell ShiffmanMonday, May 30th, 2011 — 11:19am PDT

    The Grouse Grind is awesome

  42. Jennifer M.Monday, May 30th, 2011 — 11:20am PDT

    My favorite part of the North Shore has to be kayaking in Deep Cove, followed by a huge donut from Honey’s.

  43. RobMonday, May 30th, 2011 — 11:25am PDT

    There’s a little hike up Quarry Rock in Deep Cove I love, and then ice cream after.

  44. Adrian PMonday, May 30th, 2011 — 11:25am PDT

    I love the running trails, from the Lynn Canyon loops to the Baden Powell trail, to the technical routes on My Seymour. There’s a huge variety, enough for many hours without backtracking.

  45. JanetMonday, May 30th, 2011 — 12:55pm PDT

    I love the Grouse Grind! I hope it opens soon!

  46. ScottMonday, May 30th, 2011 — 1:03pm PDT

    Scotch shopping in Edgemont Village.

    Love Deep Cove and doing the Grouse Grind

  48. MeghanMonday, May 30th, 2011 — 4:35pm PDT

    Hiking up to Quarry Rock in Deep Cove and stopping for one of the most delicious donuts you will ever try at Honey Doughnuts.

  49. BonsTuesday, May 31st, 2011 — 9:59am PDT

    I love taking a walk in the Lonsdale area on a nice day. The view is beautiful.

  50. RodTuesday, May 31st, 2011 — 10:35am PDT

    My first ride was down the Whistler Trails and it was amazing. Not only did I get to see such great views from the wild life side of natures paths, but I also got to ride on some of the great trails ever built. Go Green! 🙂

  51. DeidreTuesday, May 31st, 2011 — 2:43pm PDT

    It has great shopping, fabulous beaches and spectacular mountains! What’s not to like?

  52. EmmaTuesday, May 31st, 2011 — 3:32pm PDT

    Love the mountains! Especially Grouse, as it is super transit accessible.

  53. kelsTuesday, May 31st, 2011 — 10:41pm PDT

    lonsdale quay is a nice little area

  54. Patrick DavidsonWednesday, June 1st, 2011 — 12:02am PDT

    The one thing I love about the North Shore is Lynn Valley. From hiking to Norvan Falls or climbing Lynn Peak, I have always loved exploring that area.

  55. JeanieWednesday, June 1st, 2011 — 8:45am PDT

    I like walking along the Ambleside seaside trail.

  56. BrendaWednesday, June 1st, 2011 — 12:13pm PDT
