Fort Langley Ramble Professional Review and Guide
"Of the many excellent bike routes in the Fraser River Valley, this one is especially recommended by members of the Van Bicycling Club. The routes features scenic rural landscapes with great views of the Fraser River and nearby Mountains.
Parks and museums along the way offer glimpses into the area's colorful history, both human and natural. This is a good ride for children. Terrain: mostly low-traffic rural roads, rolling hills, and a 300-ft climb at 5 miles."
--Todd Litman & Suzanne Kort, Best Bike Rides in the Pacific Northwest (The Globe Pequot Press).
A nice afternoon road ride with the family; Fort Langley - the little townsite at the beginning and the end of the ride - is nice spot to poke around in little shops and enjoy some museums (and some ice cream). However, the ride description oversells a few aspects of the ride: (i) given the number of hills and the highway traffic encountered, I cannot recommend this ride for children under 10 or 11 - I took a 7 year old and regretted it (You'll want your children to have established riding ability, know how to handle a modest hill or two, and know how to ride with traffic.); and (ii) once you are outside of Fort Langley there are pretty well no sites of interest (shops, museums, parks ... etc.) to see/stop at along the route (Don't expect to find a spot to stop for a snack or to rest a while - there's precious little.)
