Stanley Park, Dusk Ride

The 2014 Stanley Park Series!

Discover and enjoy an array of hidden single track within Stanley Park. 

Cross posted on VMBM.  No need to sign up on both groups.

*************** Riding Lights are  still COMPULSORY ***************

This is a fun group ride not an instruction ride, however, we will offer assistance as we can to ensure the best possible experience for everyone attending.

** Remember your locks, in case we stop for a post-ride refuel**

Details: Duration: ~2 hrs. Weather: Fair to Light rain. For inclement days we will post a Go/No-Go by 4.30pm on Monday. Meet at 6:00pm at the covered picnic area, overlooking the beach.

Terrain: The trails themselves are not steep but they do have technical elements that require some skill: roots, rocks, rolls, tight turns, etc.. We will be on 'proper' mountain biking trails not the wide, flat gravel paths within the Park.

Suitability: Strong Beginner (Begintermediate). This ride is ideal for riders with some trail experience who would like to improve fitness & riding skills.   A good cardio level is required as there is a lot of pedalling. 

Equipment: A hard-tail (front suspension) mountain bike with proper off-road tires is required as a minimum.  No commuters, cruisers, road bikes, etc!  Trail-riding lights. A cycling helmet.

Please don't put us in the position of having to tell attendees they cannot join the ride for their own safety. We will be strict about Suitability and Equipment.

Restrictions: All riders must be 19+ years old. No Pets! (Stanley Park is an official 'On-Leash' area, with a $2000 max penalty).

    I took a fairly nasty hit to my knee on the Shuttle Ride yesterday. It's feeling tweaked. I'm going to come out to start the ride, but I may leave early. Tristan, you mind taking over if I bail?
