Burke - Intermediate

Spring is here!  Richard's rides are back! This month we'll switch between Burke and Fromme.

(We won't need lights till fall now!)

Riding level: Intermediate*

This week's ride will be on the lower trails on Burke!

We will stay on the lower trails... We'll likely ride Braap or Dawg then loop back to do Tyler's and then Hustler.

 

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

    Hey - I'm going to bow out tonight. I've been riding for the last 3 years in Toronto, but don't really know if I'm at an intermediate level for BC. Instead, I'm going to check out the beginner ride on Saturday. If the beginner stuff is easy, I'll see you guys next week.

    Cheers,
    Brad

    What happen to the Begintermediate rides?
    If you rode with me last year you can handle this ride. You'll see that I'm setting the ride between Beginner and Intermediate. Beginner rides will be more instructional this year; Intermediates more riding! Have a question- email me...
