Day 1's activities were capped by re-carboloading activities at the On Rice Thai Cuisine Restaurant and hanging around at the Hotel lobby with "coffee".

|A sea of orange at the border, eh!|
The ride towards Vancouver created several orange groups as everyone rode at their own pace and gaps were made bigger by traffic lights and speed preferences. Still, even though we were all separated into groups, we all managed to capture memories of our fun at the bridges, views, landmarks and interesting places along the way. We rolled into the Coast Plaza Hotel a couple of hours later than last year - around 4:30 PM - to party with the rest of the cyclists. No rush. Our two day ride concluded with more recalorization efforts at the Richmond Night Market.
Congratulations to all Team Mangs and Team Alings for another fun filled and memorable ride to Canada!
