This sucks (unless you live over that way)….moving to Burnaby, Boundary and Marine. I think I would have to drive there??

I have seen about 3 diffrent course changes at UBC, each time it got worse.

World Tuesday Night Championships or something like that. Common roadie parlance for "weekly mid-week club crit" (aka WWNC).

We actually mapped it from Steed Cycles and it is the same distance from the Shop to UBC as it is to the new course location. Although the ride to UBC is much nicer than the ride to lower Burnaby.

Plus you have to climb out of the Boundary flats… Not always fun after racing.

Left the office in Burnaby and it took 15 minutes to get there. Raced and rode home to Lynn Valley, going the long way around through the city and park.

The new course, while flatter than a pancake, is super fast. Have to be strong to hang on around the back section. Loved every second of it.

I raced 4s, and one of my average lap speeds on 2.2k was 44kph. It was fast. We got lapped by the 1/2s early, and they were moving. The smoothest course I have ever raced on too, and it was a well run event!
