Up Week - Top SFU (Burnaby Mtn) - Begintermediate

September is here! This month we'll switch between SFU and Fromme.

We'll head up North Road 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.

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.
