Introduction to Fromme Con't (Con't) - Begintermediate

  • July 24, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • Fromme - Second Gate

This week we'll keep up the momentum started by Richard on his Fromme rides.  Slightly later start time than usual though.

If you have been on one of Richard's "Up Week" rides on Burnaby Mountain you should be able to easily handle this ride. We will cover some of the basics of riding on the North Shore and will ride some of the great trails that the Shore has to offer!

Riding level: Begintermediate* We will ride Bobsled, Floppy Bunny and the Griffens. If more experienced riders with knowledge of Fromme are able to attend, the attendee limit will be raised and more groups will be made.

We'll meet at the second gate (by the washrooms/water tower).  Please note that you can only park on Mountain Highway and the surrounding side streets on or below Coleman without a permit.  Leave about 15 minutes to pedal from where you are parked to the meeting place.

I can be reached at[masked] in case of lateness or lostness.

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

    Won't make it on time, but I'll try to catch up

  • Jeff

    Anyone have a crank arm puller that will be there a few minutes early? Square taper style, haven't straightened out middle chainring yet

    July 24, 2013

    • bruce

      Jeff, check out the two pics I just uploaded - will this work? It does have a round fitting.

      July 24, 2013

    • bruce

      Actually, I'm certain it's not compatible with your bike; it's from an old toolkit and certainly doesn't fit my current mountain bike. Oh well.

      July 24, 2013

  • Kelley B.

    Hi, I'm new to the area and haven't been up Mountain Hwy. Is the meeting place fairly obvious?

    July 24, 2013

    • bruce

      Directions, as posted by Richard last week:
      Get on to Mountain Highway and stay on it all the way up until you reach Coleman Street - there are big orange signs indicating no parking beyond the signs.

      I usually park on Coleman - either the left or right hand side. You need to bike from here. There is 2 hour parking there... plenty of time for our ride.

      From here head straight up Mountain Highway - it is a "bit" of a climb... (worse part of the ride for me)
      As you climb up (about 5 - 6 blocks or so) stay to the left - you'll see a yellow gate - it will be open now. This is called the first yellow gate or first gate.

      Don't stop - keep going to the second yellow gate - also known as the water tower (it's on the left hand side). There is also a set of restrooms here.

      That's where we'll meet!

  • Alison C.

    I'm in! I made the cut! However, I was wondering if someone could give me a ride? I work in the commercial dr area and/or live in the west end...

    July 22, 2013

    • Alison C.

      Hey Wayne, I'm going to cancel tomorrow. I have an insane work project that just isn't going away. Will have to work late tomorrow. Thank you so much for your offer though. Ill hopefully see you soon!

      July 23, 2013

    • Wayne

      No worries, catch you on the trail. Good luck with the project. Your work is on my way if you get it together early.

      July 23, 2013

  • Lisa

    Unfortunately, I may not be back in time to get to this ride tomorrow! Really look forward to the next opportunity, though!

  • sam

    Is this more a cross country bike or downhill bike? I can't make this week, but I'd be keen to check out next week.

    July 23, 2013

    • Andrea

      Either one would work on the trails we are riding ... really depends if you wanna pedal the downhill bike up!

      July 23, 2013

  • Angela

    Ugh. Shop closed before I could grab my bike back. :(

    July 23, 2013

  • Angela

    Decided I have to do this. The bike adjustment can wait.

    July 22, 2013

    • Cam

      I can do it for you tomorrow if you'd like it setup for the ride.

      July 22, 2013

  • ÄŒ§ ¦.

    I could take a group up if you'd like. I'd be doing Bobsled, Floppy & Natural High

    July 22, 2013

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.
