River Valley Run, British Columbia
Three hours 30 minutes (including stops)
Living in the Fraser Valley region, we are lucky to have some of the most beautiful scenery in the West Coast on our doorstep. My club has over 60 members and my wife, Carla, and I are the run tour masters, so we’ve been taking people on this drive for the past five years or so. I take on this route in my 1990 Crystal White MX‑5 while Carla drives her 2009 Stormy Blue MX‑5.
The River Valley run starts in Fort Langley and follows the Fraser River. The twisties are a lot of fun, and new members are always saying that they never knew these roads existed before they joined the club. The scenery is amazing, with views of the powerful Fraser River as well as the fertile farms of the Fraser Valley.
I always take the group to a spot along the river where we can line our Miatas up and take some photos. Over the past two years we’ve changed the official end destination to Cheam Lake Wetlands, and club members bring their own picnics to enjoy against a backdrop of beautiful mountains.
You can enjoy this drive in spring, summer or fall, although it can get quite busy on Saturdays with cyclists. With all the twisty roads and magnificent scenery, this run is unbeatable.
The Sea to Sky Miata Club was founded over 20 years ago and is based in the Greater Vancouver/Fraser Valley region of British Columbia. With 60 cars already signed up, the club brings together Miata/MX‑5 enthusiasts who enjoy top-down driving along less-travelled roads. Find out more about us here.
