Fromme - Begintermediate

  • Jun 18, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • Fromme - Second Gate

Riding level: Begintermediate*

We'll meet at the second gate (by the washrooms/water tower) then head up and ride Expresso! 

The final section should be opened and the trail is awesome - with a few granly sections to either challenge you or humble you! 

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

 

*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.

You can climb on single-track as long as it is not too technical.

      I like this view as well, but the helmet can be a little distracting. You should think about a camouflage paint scheme...lol.

      Ha ha, yes, it's all about efficiency. Thanks again Moira for keeping me company on the Baden Powell trail - that was tedious...

    I probably won't get to mountain highway till 630pm so I'll see you guys up there on the trail hopefully.

    1 · June 18, 2014

    • Paul

      Are you sessioning it again? I should see you guys on the trail. I'm still without pedal power. Finally got my parts. Have to get my wheel built with the new hub.

      June 18, 2014

    • Richard

      I'm going to be sessioning - how to avoid the rock roll down... ;-)

    One lonely person waiting...one lovely lonely person ;)

      Technical difficulties have been resolved - light bike will be in tow. Will be interesting to compare the two rides - the big bike was pretty fun on Expresso.

    Aaargh! Can't make it.

    June 17, 2014

    • Richard

      Too bad... see you soon!

      June 17, 2014

  • Richard

    Just a FYI - the lower section wasn't finished, so it won't be open yet, but the rest of it is still good to go!

    June 16, 2014

  • Paul

    Espresso again?

    June 14, 2014

    • James B.

      Yep! Still going to be bringing my DH bike....the walk up isnt fun but its not absolutely terrible either haha!

      June 15, 2014

    • Kara N.

      A few trips on Expresso is a good idea - I have grown much fonder of it after the 3rd time around. Still waiting for the wood to be dry so I can conquer a few more challenges.

      June 15, 2014

  • Moira F.
