Down Week - Lower SFU (Burnaby Mtn) - Beginner Plus

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 is a Beginner Plus* ride that will introduce you to single track trail riding. This ride is more cross country riding than downhill (but there is a couple of downhill sections near the end of the ride - this ride stays on the Lower sections of SFU.

We'll head up and then come down North Road, Dead Moped and the unmarked trail Scaric & Mud. Then we'll head all the way down North Road to Jim's Jungle and depending on the group we can head back up to Lower Snake to finish.

*(which means beginners are welcome plus intermediate and advance riders)

      Two things...what is that room with the shiny stone counters for? And.... that pool might just attract hot sweaty muddy people off the mountains to drop in! Other than that it looks just fine :-)
