*At least 1 riding light is now mandatory.*
The plan: Pick a trail or two and ride. And to link up a few trails below it for fun while still being able to get to work the next morning. Read (or participate in) the comments for more info on which trails will be featured that night. (We're generally trying to avoid riding the same thing multiple weeks in a row.)
The CLIMB pace will be: Normal-Fast. There will NOT be time to walk a bike up. This ride is aimed towards folk who want to pedal up and get some KM's in after work. Breaks to don armour or eat a snack are no problem.
The DOWN pace will be: Normal. But rest stops will sometimes be spaced out, so bring some stamina.
Bring a riding light (or 2). And it is recommended that you at least know the area a little bit.
Weather: Will try and proceed rain or shine. But if it's terrible out we'll pull the plug.
