8:00am Start Sunday September 27
We last tried this 2 years ago but were snowed out. Let’s see if we can make it happen in 2020, it’s a crazy year so why not!
This ride is not for everyone, here’s what you need to know to participate in this ride:
- Ready to ride at 8:00am sharp!!!
- You must be able to ride 65kmh minimum on FSR stretches
- Your machine has to be in good mechanical order
- You must bring enough fuel to go 250kms
- Be prepared for fewer/shorter breaks than normal club rides
Ok, so you’re up for the ride? Read on then!
Starting at 8:00am Sunday, September 27 from the bottom of King Eddy FSR in Coldstream. It’s a long ride so we need to start early, keep up a good pace and we’ll still be late in the afternoon getting back.
Ride difficulty is upper intermediate due to the speed, nothing greater than intermediate level difficulty obstacles along the route.
There will be a mix of trail and FSR with extended sections of FSR which is unavoidable on a ride this length. Consider bringing ear plugs because one section is 30+ minutes of FSR done at cruising speed (65kmh minimum) which gets a bit tiring on the ears.
Bring food and drink for a full day on the trails. Breaks will be short and they won’t happen very often so bring something you can poke down quickly. We will pass a number of recreation sites with outhouses for those in need of facilities,
We reach 6,000ft elevation along the route so bring cold/wet weather riding gear.
Ride Route – this isn’t 100% accurate as it has been simplified to reduce the number of waypoints but is a pretty close approximation of where the 250km ride route.
