Announcing a new Meetup for Vancouver Mountain Bike Meetup!

What: Mt. Galbraith, Bellingham, WA - XC ride with some "Whooo Hooo!"

When: Saturday, August 14,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Galbraith Parking Lot
5092 S Samish Way
Bellingham, WA 98229

Come out and ride the amazing trails at Galbraith Mountain in Bellingham. This is an intermediate ride with gorgeous scenery and very fun singletrack. There are so many trails it would take us days to ride all of them so we'll ride some old favourites and explore a bit as well.

We will be on the mountain for about 4 hours and we will be starting off with a 40 to 45 minute climb to the top - we will take our time since the weather will be warm.

You will need a passport or an enhanced driver's license to cross the border. We will meet at 8:00 am at the Chevron gas station on the US side of the Pacific Hwy border crossing. Take 176th Street in Surrey south to the border, once across the border, turn left at the very first traffic light, and turn into the Chevron station.

Here's a link to how long the border wait is so you can plan how early to arrive:

After the border, it's about 20 minutes to the ride location.

Please bring lots of water, tools, a snack, and a change of clothes. I highly recommend travel insurance in case of injury.

Meet up and the AOs are volunteers and do not accept responsibility for the safety of the riders in the group. All riders are responsible for their own safety. Helmets are mandatory for all rides, arm and shin pads are strongly recommended. You also need water, tools to fix a flat at least and you should have some food, extra clothes appropriate to the season and weather and a basic first aid kit. Basically, you need to be self sufficient in the event you get separated from the group.
