Fromme Intermediate Night Riding Fun! (ALL MTN)

The plan: Pick a trail or two and ride.  And to link up a few trails below it for fun while still being able to get to work the next morning.  Read (or participate in) the comments for more info on which trails will be featured that night.  (We're generally trying to avoid riding the same thing multiple weeks in a row.)

The CLIMB pace will be: Normal-Fast. There will NOT be time to walk a bike up.  This ride is aimed towards folk who want to pedal up and get some KM's in after work.  Breaks to don armour or eat a snack are no problem. 
The DOWN pace will be: Normal. But rest stops will sometimes be spaced out, so bring some stamina.

Lights are pretty much optional at this point.  You can carry one as a "just in case" if you like.

Weather: Will try and proceed rain or shine.  But if it's terrible out we'll pull the plug.

    Woo! Thanks for coming out guys.
    Definitely making the call that lights are mandatory from here on... as it's not so much fun rushing to beat the sunset in the thick forest.

      You didn't slow us down at all Simon. It was a great ride! As for lights, I like/have the Gemini Duo (http://gemini-lights....­). It fits on your bars and helmet. Dunbar Cycles online usually has them for 10% to 15% off. You can also get the Chinese knock-off for about half the price. A friend of mine bought these and hasn't had a problem with them.

      I use the Night Rider Pro 700. It's a bit excessive, but I don't ever worry about having enough light or running the battery down.

    Mark, we're trying to stay in the daylight, so we're going to roll out at 6:55. If you're still on your way, post here and we'll try and meet on the way up.

    Greg, are you aware that you are signed up for 2 meetup's on Wednesday night? VMBM's 7th/Expresso ride. And this Executioner ride?

    August 19

  • Colin G.

    We're going to ride: Executioner to Dream Weaver to Lower Boundary and out onto Braemer Rd. this week.

    (Sticking to the 5th switchback in the interest of daylight this week. If anyone owns a light, you can bring it as a "just in case"... don't think you will need it though).

    Interested in going but this event starts pretty late. I might do a few routes beforehand and catch up with you before leaving though. Which difficulty level of routes will you be doing? Do you do much MTB around here?

      Just started mountain biking in North Van, I've only done Fromme once so I only know Bobsled. I want to step up the difficulty and do some blacks. What would you recommend starting with? I ski blacks but am relatively new to MTB

      Floppy Bunny is a good one to check out. You ride past it on the way up to Bobsled. It's got some technical rooty bits and some optional jumps.
