    Another beautiful night for a ride... long climb, long ride! Bit of a Knee Knacker though:
    - Arturo let us know how you make out
    - Ed hopefully it looked worse that it is... blood and mud - that's mountain biking on the shore - heal up fast. Here is the my GPS link... what a long walk! http://connect.garmin.com/modern/#activity/[masked]

    Thanks for coming out.

    Haven't ridden Seventh secret for over a year but "begintermediate"? Maybe it has changed. The new softened Espresso yes, but Seventh? Not exactly Gearjammer.

      Hey Becker! you showing up early to pushup? I've left my DH pig at home but coming with my XC machine...but thinking i will show up early with a few of the others because of my turtle-like lungs i may be pushing up a bit still.

      July 15, 2014

    • James B.

      July 16, 2014

  • SarahK

    July 7, 2014

    • Starship C.

      Great! thanks for the directions. I will show up at 6 at watertower to see if anyone else is there, will start peddaling/crawling shortly after towards 7th.

      July 15, 2014

    • James B.

      I am going to try to make it to water towers by 6, as I know it takes me forever to climb as well!

      1 · July 16, 2014

  • Richard

    Just a reminder - we are meeting at the top of 7th Secert at 7:15 - leave enough time for the climb. It will take between 45 mins to an hour!

    See you tonight...

  • Amir J.

    Is anybody can give me ride from Burnaby or 2nd narrow to there?

    July 14, 2014

  • Josh O.

    Would anyone be able to give me a lift there from Coquitlam?

    July 12, 2014

  • Richard

    May need to adjust the meet time at 7th. I'm assuming 45 minute climb on average!

    July 2, 2014

    • ÄŒ§ ¦.

      maybe I'll start climbing at 6. I need the extra 1/2 to recover :(

  • Pavol L.

    Is anyone there who will be pushing the bike up?

    1 · July 6, 2014

    • Richard

      Yes - that's why the meet up spot is at the trail head - so those who want to walk can leave earlier...

      July 6, 2014

  • Christine W.

    Just want to know the best place to park.....
