    With last week canceled let’s give this a go this weekend.

    With the amount of rain, we have been having I am sure we are going to see some standing water and mud, but that just makes it better right!

    The intermediate route will be… (45km moderate pace)

    The advanced route will be….. (80km brisk pace)

    Rember there is no beginner route option as there will be some challenging terrain on these rides. However, its a no drop ride and we will help you learn the enjoyment of finding the route less traveled.

    28c tires are a minimum width but really 33 or bigger is best. This is perfect for a cross or gravel bike but if you are feeling skilled and ok getting your road bike dirty it can be done.

    See you all Sunday morning!

    Let me know if you have any questions on the ride.

    I’d strongly recommend a tire with at least a bit of tread. A file tread, or even a standard cyclocross tread will help keep you upright in some of the nasty, muddy terrain you’re going to find yourself in Sunday. It will be slower on the road, but will make the nasty stuff at least manageable.

    The advanced ride is geared for riders who are very comfortable on off-road / muddy, rocky inclines / declines, and can keep a pace on a paved road in a group of about 35km/h. The intermediate ride is geared towards riders who are reasonably comfortable riding on muddy, rocky hills and can keep a pace of about 30-32km/h while riding in a group on a paved road.

    Enjoy!
