Just had a chance to drive part of this route. I was particularly interested in the end of the route near Langley. Specifically I wanted to check out the possibility of connecting to the Golden Ears Bridge. Just before the route begins to climb up to the Trans Canada Highway I turned left on 104th Ave. Just before the railroad tracks I turned right on Daly. They are already working on the planned connection of the South Perimeter Road directly to the Golden Ears Bridge. I could only drive as far as 179th St. There I was met by a flagger working for the road construction company. She said there was no way through alongside the proposed new road. Once it is completed in 2017 there should be a bike path. As it now stands there is a reasonable route to the bridge.
On a bike you go up 179th to Barnston. It is somewhat steep but less than a kilometre in length. But I think it is much safer and frankly easier than trying to ride up on Highway 17/15, over Highway 1 to Golden Ears Way (GEW). Once on Barnston you have to go east, crossing over GEW, until you reach the stop sign on 96th. Turn left (even though right is downhill and heading towards the bridge) because once you get to GEW (about 300m away) there is a very nice bike path beside the road. Ride this path for about 2.3km until it veers right onto Telegraph Trail. At the stop sign turn left and go under the GEW. Turn right on 98b. You then weave thru an industrial area until you get to a stop sign where you turn right on 199b St and then 200m later turn left on 100 Ave. About 200m down 100th Ave there is the bike ramp up to the sidewalk bike path over the Golden Ears Bridge.
