First Reconnaissance Ride

The first Reconnaissance Ride of the coalition took place on Saturday 24th January 2009, with Ed Schum, Jan Gemmell, Jim Palmer and Graham Garner.

We looked at (arguably) the best and the worst of cycling infrastructure in the Comox Valley.

The best being the Courtenay Riverway and the worst the 5th Street Bridge.

We started out in temperatures of around freezing, but the sun almost came out and the riding was quite pleasant at the end. It all finished off with a nice chat at Serious Coffee. I am looking forward to more of these rides with a better turn out of riders in future.
