  • Fromme - Second Gate

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

You will need lights* for this ride - they are now COMPULSORY!

Riding level: Begintermediate*

This week's ride will be on the lower trails on Fromme!

We'll meet at the second gate (by the washrooms/water tower) then head up and ride Bobsled, Floppy Bunny, others... followed by King of the Shore or Natural High and then out on Lower Griffen.

 

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

  • Arturo

    I can't ride this time, I have a injured leg. See you all by the next season!

    September 8, 2013

    • Fiona

      Ouch! He was hobbling on it at the end of our ride so we were hoping it wasn't too serious. Arturo, I hope you have a speedy recovery!

      September 8, 2013

    • Richard

      I emailed Arturo - he said that nothing was broken - just a really, really bad contusion and his leg is now in full bloom. He was just able to go down steps this week... but will need another 4 to 6 weeks before he can get back on his mountain bike.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
