Sumas Saturday!

I can't make it out for Fraser Valley Friday this week so as requested Sumas Saturday it is!

Assuming Knob Gobbler is now cleared I'd like to do that trail then either Squid Line or the Boot Sauce Emma Peel combo because I haven't done that combo for a while. I've found my way down Squid and done it a few times so I can find the way down there.

Both routes have rolling terrain so you should have strong intermediate skills, good fitness for pedaling and an appropriate bike for pedaling. I prefer to ride up than shuttle so DH bikes are not recommended.

    Knob Gobbler is good to go. It is an advanced trail though by the way. Some steep technical sections and tight switchbacks you don't wanna mess up. Just so people know what they are getting into.

    Is there such a thing as too much fun on bikes? There is, its a good thing and we did! Well matched great group of riders. Knobgobbler, all the Sauces and Emma Peel leave just enough in the legs by the end that you still leave with that magic feeling of wanting more. Great day!

    Its going to be a hot one folks so be sure to bring some Gatorade or other preferred sports drink and or nutrition as well as plenty of water. We'll likely be sweating a lot so you'll want to be replacing those electrolytes ect.
