Anybody know where there's a self-serve car wash in North Van?

I need one of those car washes with the spray gun and the brush so I can clean my pile of shit bike and put it back together.

Third and Chesterfield may still be there. Check the Petro Can on Main St right next to the corner of Mountain Highway and Main Street. Its on the south side on Main Street just to the west of the intersection.

No, it's one of those touchless carwashes. They don't work very well and cost too much. The Esso was great and you could do a wash of a small car for $3.50.

It's all automated as well. In the detailing section there is a small hose (in the middle two bays) but I don't know how they feel about people just pulling up to rinse of their bikes...

There is a wandwash type place out in Burnaby on Hastings near Different Bikes. I use that one if I'm riding somewhere other than the shore...

Too my knowledge there is nothing of use in North Vancouver. Maybe check behind an apt. building near your place... often they have their carwashes in the alley, which at least gives you access to a hose....

If you are looking just to clean up the bike after a ride... then at Parkgate shopping area there is a hose outside of the gas station. They allow bikers to use it no problems.
