With the temperatures heating up it should be a great day to hit the paths at Gull Lake. Forecast is plus 15, so here is hoping. Like other years we meet at the Monkey Top and ride to Gull Lake, ride the park and return to Bentley. Have a late lunch at the Monkey Top, tell a feel lies an head home. Look for the Circuit Cycle Tacoma.
Park at Tiffany's away from the entrance and we'll leave for the bike ride from there. Ride the trails hopefully not too wet, but be prepared if they are. We'll ride at least an hour and meet back at Tiffany's and stay for a meal or drink, whatever is your preference. It's my first event, so I won't be too fast, but I'm also never slow. Please be prepared and safe in your planning. I'd like feed back as to when & where future rides are preferred as a group. Please be on time. Thanks 🚴♂️🚴♀️
This is probably Canada's best kept secret. The Cyprus Hill Interprovincial park straddles the Alberta/Saskatchewan border, and butts up to the US border. The elevation of this oasis plateau is the highest in North America, so much so that the ice age never overtook territory and as a result ancient orchids can be found in this location. The scenery in breathtaking and the park managed by the Saskatchewan government rival's Alberta's side. Therefore we will stay at the resort and cycle the abundant trails, and hills. A hardtail bike is suitable for this location, but if you can bring two bikes and include a MTB full suspension then do so. The Resort has one suite that is very large and can be occupied by about eight. Depending on the response, we can consider booking that room. We have time to plan.

You can also you can park on Parke Avenue behind MSG, which is where you can our the group's truck. I will watch the weather forecast in case of rain, or high chances of, the meetup may be cancelled up to a day prior. Please check back. FOR THOSE WANTING TO CAR POOL: I can take four additional riders in my truck along with the bikes. We would leave from Millet.
