Family biking in grasslands (Picture BC photo)
Both Pitt Meadows and neighbouring Maple Ridge offer excitement and relaxation for cyclists of all levels.
Enjoy biking amid rugged terrain in the vast Golden Ears Provincial Park, or chill out while pedaling along the more than 48km/30mi of dykes that grace the low-lying regions near the Fraser River and Pitt River.
Cycling on the Dykes
Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge initiated a civic Bikeways Plan in 1994, and it's paid dividends today with great cycling routes in municipal and rural areas. That includes the famous dykes, easily accessible via peaceful roads and parkland surroundings.
Hawk Rotary Loop
A delightfully flat ride is available on the Hawk Rotary Loop, which encompasses about 17km/10.5 in western Pitt Meadows. Tree-lined trails and occasional wildlife sightings mark the dyke sections on the Fraser River and Pitt River, and views of grazing cows and planes taking off at the Pitt Meadows Regional Airport are other highlights.
