    We did this ride today. It came out to 29.9 miles. There was a long stretch through downtown Vancouver and Camas as well as a long road with only about 6 inches of space. Neither of which were so fun to ride. Passing by LaCamas lake was nice, but we missed the castle somehow. Overall a B-

    Thanks Teresa. I’m confused about the 6 inches of space. Most rides do not have bike lanes for any considerable length. It’s more likely the line indicates the edge of the road rather than a shoulder. I hope you’ll do it again and see the castle and upgrade your rating!

    Did this ride at end of August with my wife and son. Good fun ride. Evergreen Hwy needs some attention it was very rough. The rest of the ride was great
