Thanks Steve for leading another great early season ride. A big turnout of riders again, reports are the snow is melting fast but why didn’t anyone have toasted chocolate covered raisins for lunch?
When pressed for a name we resort to looking up what national day it is, so now you’ll remember that March 25 is national Chocolate Covered Raisin Day. Last ride was the waffle ride and we had folks toasting waffles over the fire, stay tuned to see what happens with the Glosettes this weekend.
Riding will be limited to the graded roads, straying too far from plowed roads means getting really stuck this winter. Beginner riders and up are welcome on this ride, the only thing to be aware of is it can be slick from 0-10km on King Eddy Road as it hides in the shade much of the day.
Bring your friends, members and non-members are all invited to come out. If you’re not a member but want to check out the club come out to see some new trails and meet riding buddies.
Holy hannah, nice turnout with 20 machines for our first sunny Sunday ride of spring. Lots of roads plowed up on the plateau but be careful venturing into deeper snow as we found out with lots of pushing and winching and some folks thinking it was going to be a campout.
Our next club ride will be Sunday March 11 at 10:00am at King Eddy.
This day has the double dubious honour of being spring forward time change AND national waffle day. Someone must have a great name for this ride, send us your ideas.
We’ll meet up at the bottom of King Eddy for this ride so change your clocks and set your alarm so you’re not late for this 10:00am start. It just keeps on snowing at elevation so come prepared for winter riding.
There may be a lunch fire, we usually try and have some sort of a small smoke producing creature (some call it fire) so you may want something that can be eaten without flames.
