What a great way to experience much of the Whistler Area. The section over Green Lake is quite challenging but rewarding. The cycling route closer in to the villages is well known and an absolute joy. Overall it takes in the chain of lakes that make up the Whistler area - Apha Lake, Nita Lake, Alice Lake, Lost Lake and Green Lake. It will take a good 4 to 5 hours to complete the whole route. Some may choose to just do the easier loop within the village. It is best done in a clockwise direction.
Vedder-Sumas River CYCLING TRAIL LOOP c47
This fun loop can be split in two. It takes in Macdonald Park on the Sumas River, the Barrowtown Pump Station, the Vedder River, Sumas Prairie, and the Great Heron Nature Reserve. It is quite an easy cycle due to its flatness. Allow up to 4 hours.
Crescent Beach-White Rock CYCLING TRAIL LOOP c45a
This great loop doesn't directly connect with the Trans Canada Trail but there is work afoot to have it connected and could lead to a connection into the United States. It takes in the Semiahmoo Heritage trail and of course the famous Crescent and White Rock beaches along with several greenways and parks. It involves some hill climbing and is best done in a couunter clockwise direction. Allow about 4 hours for this loop.
North Langley-Surrey CYCLING TRAIL LOOP c44a
This loop takes advantage of the TCT and Fort-to-Fort Trail along the Fraser River, watercourses in Walnut Grove, Tynehead Regional Park, and Surrey Bend Regional Park with the possible addition of Brae Island Regional Park (extra 5k) and looping around Barnston Island (extra 10k). It also uses the separated paved pathway along Golden Ears Way. What a great way to explore this region. Allow about 5 hours for the main loop. It is best done in a clockwise direction.
North Pitt Meadows CYCLING TRAIL LOOP c43
This loop allows for two important experiences: a loop along the North and South Arm of the Alouette River and a second loop that completely takes in the Pitt Polder. It is highly recommended to do both. Some may choose to cycle it in two trips. The loop between the two arms of the Alouette River is quite easy. The Pitt Polder loop is quite a bit harder even if it is also very flat because the dikes tend to be overgrown with grass. However both are very exhilarating and are great destinations. To complete the full loop allow a good 6 hours.
South Pitt Meadows CYCLING TRAIL LOOP c42
This easier mainly flat loop takes in two arms of the Trans Canada Trail allowing the trail to also reach Maple Ridge with a view that the Trans Canada Trail will also have a route on this side of the Fraser River all the way to the Mission Bridge and perhaps the Agassiz Bridge and be part of the Experience of the Fraser Parkway/Canyon to Coast Trail. Apart from the waterways the main interest in this loop are the farmlands, especially the cranberry and blueberry fields. Sighting of heronsm and ospreys is very common along all of this loop.
