Fride-ay Weekend Primer

  • October 18, 2013 · 11:00 AM

Friday is my weekend ride day due to my non-standard work week and its time to get back to the reason I originally joined this Meetup; to find people to ride with weekdays when I can ride.

Jeff, Shredder and I have been riding the Fraser Valley Fridays over the summer so why not post the ride for those of us who can ride Fridays to get warmed up for the weekend?

This week we are riding Seymour XC and will be looking for the new trail near Dale's recently finished by Digger. The terrain is rolling so bring a trail bike not a DH or FR bike. Skill level is strong intermediate plus and the pace will be whatever my legs can muster but they feel pretty good today.

The start times and locations will vary week to week but should be posted by Wednesday.

The groups will be a max of 6 and the skill and fitness level is usually strong intermediate-plus to keep things moving.

This isn't a race or a death march but these are typically trail rides with plenty of pedaling on rolling trails and may include some tougher climbs.

We usually ride rain or shine. If the weather is wetter than normal very windy or buried in low elevation snow the ride will be cancelled. Those calls are usually made the morning of the ride so check in before you head out.

Guests are welcome, please include them when you rsvp to keep the group count accurate. If you have more than 1 guest let me know and I will usually make an adjustment.

I hope to see you on a ride soon!

    Except no Pipeline...I dislike that trail!

    Anything on the Shore works for me. I bet 7th is in great shape right now (even if I'm not!) :)

    Should have mentioned I will confirm the time and place as soon as possible.

    I was talking to Jeff who I usually ride with Fridays. He can ride at 11 am and that works for me if its a local ride like the shore. My preference is Seymour XC but Fromme would work too. I'm not into the nasty Gnar, more of a 7th, Pipeline, Kirkford type. My legs will be in recovery mode from 5 1/2 hours on eagle Bunzen and sasmat today so what trails were you thinking about guys?
