Richard's Final Wed Night Ride - SFU (Burnaby Mtn) - Begintermediate

Well, my regular Wednesday night rides are drawing to a close for this season. And it has been a great riding season - with over 30 Meetup rides... I want to thank everyone who came out and joined in the fun!

Let's finish on the mountain we started on - so come out for a last Wed night ride on SFU.


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

Riding level: Begintermediate*


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.

 

*Bike Lights should be 500 lumens or higher.

*Begintermediates

  • You’ve been mountain biking for at least one year or have decent general riding skills and good fitness.
  • You're capable of controlling bike speed and direction on moderate (green and blue) single-track.
  • You can handle terrain that is slightly technical, with smaller rocks,  roots,  and some drops. You may get off your bike and walk when the terrain gets technical.

    Nice to see everyone out tonight. Dave, nice that you could make it! Thanks Richard for all your rides. I seem to be climbing slower as the days get shorter so maybe I should also "retire" until spring. ;-)

    Plenty of fun! Only a little rain at the beginning. Trails were fast with good traction. A fun group. Here I thought Kyle was setting the pace by pushing my back wheel! :D Thanks for posting and leading this ride and the series Richard.
