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.
