Cyprus Hills Ride

Let's ride out to Cyprus Hills this Saturday.

We'll have lunch in the park but we'll have to find a restaurant.  Ride through the park and look at the sights then ride home on the #3 to make it a loop.


Check out this map for the route plan...  http://goo.gl/maps/FM5x3

Here's the route in text:

- 22x east till it merges with #1 at Gliechen

- #1 east to Medicine Hat

-  41 south to Cyprus Hills park

- come back home on the #3 and #2

 

This will be a long ride and will take the full day.  Please make sure your bike (and you) are able to make this trip before you sign up. Google says it's 771 km and that doesn't include the distance we ride in the park.  We will be getting an early start so we get home at a reasonable time.

Here is a link to the park itself...

We'll have lunch at the townsite, then go south to Murry Hill road, then across the park to the end of Resor Lake road.  Those roads are paved, some others are gravel which we'll avoid.

    Great ride! It was my first time visiting all these locations. Thanks for the "escort" rob and I am currently sourcing a larger gas tank because these are the type of rides I like doing. I am uploading a few of the panoramic pics I took from my Iphone.

    Excellent as always, what can I say. Spending the day with fun people that love to ride.

    Great choice of location with some nice scenery and not too much traffic on chosen routes. Limiting # of riders to around 10 really helps on the logistics of such a the ride which involves many fuel stops. Subjectively though, scaling the ride down to a 7 or 8 hour day would eliminate those last few hours of fatigue and numbness :)

    Great ride. Good call Greg on the #23 detour thru Blackie to avoid the soaking! -Rob "the Escorstster". "The rider who escorts the Sportster in case they run out of gas". Just kidding Adam, I'd ride with you anytime.

    So we did an approximately 1000 km loop. The #1 was a real groaner, but the park was spectacular. Thanks everyone for making it a great day. Lots of fun. :)

    The weather is looking good for tomorrow, however there is a chance of isolated showers. Better pack a rain suit just in case.

    My wife (DeeDee) has made reservations for us at the Elkwater Lake Lodge in the park at Cyprus hills....

    We have to be there between 12 and 1, so leaving at 8:30 as planned and one gas stop in Brooks should get us there right around noonish.

    Here is the menu from the pub, reasonable prices...

    See you all Saturday morning. Fingers crossed that the weather cooperates. :D

      Reesor Lake in Cypress Hills is a nice little spot.

    Cypres sounds like nice ride but we'll have to limit ourselves to Sunday breakfast-obligations call.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
