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.

If you have questions - send me a message or post a comment.

    It was pretty short taking into account the driving to the Burnaby mountain. But you can always ride by yourself after, of course!

      Yes - most of my rides are around 1:45 to 2:00 hrs - it really depends on the group. Last night was quick given the size! And as you said - people can always ride some more after. Still - hope you had a good time... :-)

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.
