Fride-ay Weekend Primer

  • Oct 25, 2013 · 10:00 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?

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!

    Oh well. I was just going to reply that I might be able to make it for a noon start though even that's early for me.

    Hey Murray, do you want to ride Burnaby from North Road at noon this week. Weather is perfect for it!

    I'd like to do one of your Friday rides but for me, anything before noon (ideally afternoon) is too early for me. :-/

      Ok Murray, I'll keep that in mind. The past few weeks I've been working Friday 4-9pm. Not a normal shift for me. It may be the fellow who used to do that shift is no longer available. I could however do a noon ride on Burnaby and head to work afterwards. I contacted Marcia about riding the FV this week but if she can't go maybe we can do Burnaby tomorrow at noon.

    Saturday Whistler Wowza is a pretty big ride so this one should be an easier one. This has to be a morning ride too since I work at 4 pm.
