Your sig's gonna get HUGE!!!

I'm not that familiar with Ladner, but you could get a few nice miles in by heading out towards the Reiffel Bird Sanctuary and those roads around Westham Island.

I learned the hard way to towel off my bike before the dog. I'd rather have a slightly oily dog than a hairy bike.

another vote for seymour demo, it's a GP circuit for bikes!
We like to get down to the states too. Birch Bay is a nice morning trip from N Van.
Langley is all good too, quiet roads

If you're going to make it all the way out NV, you might as well hit Cypress or Seymour for some serious climbing. Cypress is the easier of the two.

demo is much more peaceful ride… Cypress is a little too intense… For me anyways.
