Up Week - Top SFU (Burnaby Mtn) - Begintermediate

The month of June is our swing month - we'll spend one week on the lower trails, and the next week on the upper trails.

This week's ride will climb to the top of SFU!!!! We have spent the month of May at the bottom of Burnaby Mountain, it's time to step up our game and see what the mountain really has to offer.

Riding level: Begintermediate*

We'll head up North Road and Dead Moped then turn up the Trans Canada Trial to the top of SFU. We'll head over to the Naheeno park trail and then over to ride down Gear Jammer, Upper Cut and finishing on Lower Snake.

This will be an easy ride - taking our time to session some of the new trails. If you have questions - send me a message or post a comment. I will alternate rides in June - one week up - one week down.


*(which means - some experience/comfort on trails and obstacles)

    Thanks again, guys. I'm soothing my foul mood with the knowledge that I burned 1200 calories! I'll either cheer up by tomorrow or I may have a 2011 Devinci Dixon for sale. :)

    Hey. I have a big heavy downhill bike. Will we be walking up?

    June 2, 2013

    • Richard

      Rather than shuttle... yes. Some will bike up - others will bike and walk (like me)... but no one gets left behind!
