Easy Cycling Around Vancouver
Easy Cycling Around Vancouver Fun Day Trips for All Ages By Cousins, Jean Book - 2011

While the majority of the routes in this books were too short for my tastes, and too far away, there were a few interesting ones that could be the start or end of a good ride. Or maybe something to do with friends.
In particular I liked the Traboulay Poco Trail, a 25km flat off road loop that takes you around the city of Port Coquitlam. The couple of trails in Pitt Meadows look good but more for a walk rather than a ride, at least for me. The Harrison-Agassiz route is good, I've been out there and taking the back roads (i.e. not Hwy 9) make for a really beautiful and traffic free trip. I'll be trying out parts of the Bradner-Mt.Lehman & Matsqui Prairie ride, those country roads should be nice and I know the Clayburn Village store has great ice cream. Routes 35-40 are all in my current stomping grounds and offer me no surprises, having ridden almost all the roads and trails suggested already. And if I'm ever in the mood to pack my bicycle across the border there are even a few routes in Whatcom and Skagit County.
There were too many out and back trips, I much prefer a loop to keep things different, but all in all, a good guide. Even if you don't follow the routes, it offers some great ideas for locations to ride.
