*Date is pending* Read full posting. Failure to do so will leave you on the waitlist. An automated waitlist has been created. Please ensure they're answered truthfully, as it aids in organizing. If you don't receive the rsvp questions upon your registration, please contact me via p.m. Any last minute changes to carpooling can drastically change the course of the event, as much as being cancelled. If we have more passengers than drivers, priority will be given to drivers. Only RSVP if you're sincerely interested in this event. If you cancel within 24hrs without a reasonable reason you will possibly be given a no-show. Life happens, this I understand completely. This is bear season. If you’re unsure how to use your bear spray, contact your local retailer. MEC also provides a course on the subject. If your looking for a guide, contact a local retailer. I’m simply a volunteer. Elevation: 1,350m +/- Dist.: 23km +/- Pace: moderate pace with short breaks. Although, I'm flexible with paces. We'll stop for photos along the way. NO SLOW POKES or BEGINNERS PLEASE.
