Stanley Park "Bonus SUNday!!" Ride - Intermediate

  • Jun 8, 2014 · 5:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's ride the "2014 Stanley Park Series"!

 

I will take you for a ride up and through the Park to enjoy an array of hidden single track. The pace will be faster than the regular rides as I need some steady mileage (very few stops) but I will still do my best to prevent people becoming separated from the group.

 

Details: Duration: 2-2.5+ hrs. Weather: Fair to Light rain. Meet at 5:45pm at the covered picnic area near the Car Park, overlooking the beach.  Parking is $3.75/hr to a max of $10 all night (credit card, loose change, or pay-by-phone only) in the Car Park. Possible free parking available locally if you have time to search and are lucky! Look for me on my red and silver Kona Cadabra. We'll be looking to get the ride started by 5.50pm!

Terrain: The trails themselves are not steep but they do have a lot of technical elements that require some skill: roots, rocks, rolls, some tighter turns, etc.. We will be on 'proper' biking trails not the wide, flat gravel paths within the Park. Logs and structures do get very slippery when damp!

Suitability: Intermediate (and above).  A good cardio level is required as there is a lot of pedalling.  I will be keeping up a good pace. All stunts have a ride-around or can be walked.  

Equipment: A hardtail (front suspension) mountain bike with proper off-road tires is required as a minimum. No commuters, cruisers, road bikes, etc! A quick-release seatpost clamp (or dropper post) is recommended, for easy saddle-up/down between sections. A cycling helmet is always mandatory.

Please don't put us in the position of having to tell attendees they cannot join the ride for their own safety. We will be strict about Suitability and Equipment.

Restrictions: All riders must be 19+ years old.  No Pets! (Stanley Park is an official 'On-Leash' area, with a $2000 max penalty).

    Trails in near-perfect condition - and we shredded them! I needed a good chunk of distance with lots of hard work and Javier pushed me a lot more than I would have pushed myself!! We rode in the Park for a little over 2 hours and rode every trail (and in both directions where practical). Hardly any stops and a lot of ripping. Cheers Javier, I had a blast!
