Our return trip was pretty much the same route as our outbound ride, but we did have some things we wanted to take a closer look at, along the ride.
Housing developments lined the West Dyke Trail separated from the water in the Strait of Georgia by varying widths of tidal marshland, the dyke and a canal. Some of the developments were pretty nondescript, but others were well laid out and attractive.
Older residential development
This herd of Belted Galloway cows were out on the tidal flats, chowing down on the marsh grasses.
The tidal flats are really wide here.
This was a beautiful development, reminiscent of something you may see in the Netherlands
back on track on West Dyke
riding River Road, along the Fraser River
making our way through Richmond…
…and onto the Canada Line Bikeway
pausing on the Canada Line Bikeway, we spotted a tug pulling this log boom
back down on the other side of the Fraser, heading to…
…the 67th Avenue Bikeway…
…and onto the Arbutus Greenway. The autumn colours were startling
At Cypress Street and W 4th Avenue, headed for…
…Burrard Street and…
…the Burrard Bridge
The return trip was 27.5 km ( 17 miles) for a total ride distance of 55.2 km (34 1/3 miles). We loved our rental bikes and the ride.
Our time in Vancouver was coming to a close. We had one last evening to spend with B & K.
