Lower SFU (Burnaby Mtn) - Beginner Plus

Continuing with the Beginner Plus rides - this ride will stay on the Lower sections of SFU.

We'll head up and then come down North Road and Dead Moped. Then we'll head all the way down North Road to Jim's Jungle and depending on the group we can head back up to Lower Snake to finish (and we will do Lower Snake this time).

    I'm a beginner and have done one ride. Was the Sunday morning Burnaby Mountain ride (not a beginner ride!). I struggled but survived. Cool if I join this beginner+ ride?

    May 4, 2013

    • Richard

      Hi Angela, please come and join us. We stay on the lower trails and pace is not too difficult. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

    Hi, would a hard tail or DH bike be more suitable? Do you shuttle?

      Yep, there is no need for a DH bike or a shuttle on Burnaby Mountain, especially the lower trails. Its a trail bike mountain.

      @Gixxer - you can check out last weeks ride and in the comments I posted a GPS link. It will show the main route we take and the elevation change. Hard tail all the way.
