Up Week - Top SFU (Burnaby Mtn) - Begintermediate

Welcome to August! This month we'll switch between SFU and Fromme.

This week's ride will climb to the top of SFU!!!!

Riding level: Begintermediate*

We'll head up North Road (maybe add in 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's a good idea to pack a flashlight or to start bringing your lights - if something happens like a flat tire - you'll be glad to have a light.

      We'll usually wait 10 minutes or so depending on how many are missing. You can always catch on the trail up. If you know the route.
