Ride to Beaver Mines

  • May 4, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Esso Station, 1 block west of MacLeod on 162nd Ave.

Lets ride to Beaver Mines in Southern Alberta.  It's about a 200km run one way so we should be able to make it on one tank of gas.  Forecast is favorable, temperatures in the mid teens and low winds.

I am including a map for reference...

http://goo.gl/maps/gcgZt

We'll meet at the Esso in Shawnessy and ride the 22 down.  Going home we'll ride the 22 north to Chain Lakes then take the 533 to Nanton and home on the #2.

I made a reservation at the one and only restaurant in Beaver Mines. They will open up early for us, and are expecting us.

 

I'm putting this ride in as an option for advanced riders that want a longer ride than the one that Simona is hosting in the New Riders Ride meetup on the same day.

    Could someone shoot me a call or text when you all leave? I think you should hit chain lakes about 11:00. I'll be at chain lakes at 11:00. Matt. [masked]

    Riding buddy in town but mods are needed for his new machine. So 10 am is too early this week. We'll shop, wrench n ride out about 3:30 instead. Everyone have fun!

    that works for us good job Kevin.

  • Randy

    It would be a shame to ride that way and miss the #533.

    May 2, 2013

    • Kevin

      The reservation is at a place called Stella's. It's on the far side of town, left side of road if you're coming from the north. I told her we'd be there between 12 & 12:30. She's going to open early to accomodate us.

      May 2, 2013

    • Kevin

      And just to clarify, the "town" is Beaver Mines, NOT Pincher Crk.

      May 2, 2013

  • Kevin

    I just updated the description, we have a reservation in Beaver Mines for lunch, arrival time between 12 and 12:30.

    #533 works for us also good plan.

    May 2, 2013

    • Kevin

      Ok, I updated the ride plan. 533 it will be!

    #23 and #24 return sounds like a good plan rather than #2. Where were you thinking of grabbing a bite and fuel?

    May 2, 2013

    • Kevin

      There is a restaurant in Beaver Mines. Don't know if they have gas there, if not we can gas up in Pincher Crk.

    Is this the newbie ride? Is the route include Nanton?

    May 1, 2013

    • Kevin

      Hi Matt, we will not be going through Nanton on the way down, but we could arrange to meet you on 22 if you wanted. This is not the newbie ride, the newbie ride is called "New Riders Ride" on the same day.
