SRCC Big MTB Rides
Local 42km and 40km routes.
Sunday September 22nd, 2019
10:00 AM Start (all groups)
- The rides start and end at Fixed Gear Brewing, with a free beer at the end
- There are multiple speed/skill groups, however as some of the trails can be quite challenging, intermediate to advanced MTB skills is recommended.
- There is a rest/snack stop along the way
- Rain or shine unless truly miserable
The weekend could be raining so try to come join our ride tonight!
Our routes today will take us zig-zagging west to the hopefully still fresh tarmac on 30 Sideroad (If its chip sealed I apologize in advance), down 4th and 1st before returning back up Watson.
The A group will add in Mountsberg and Col Du Watson to ensure that they are properly tired.
** Update ** Chance of light rain before the ride. Its low enough right now and should end right around start time so I’m not cancelling but its good to be aware of it. Plan some extra time to ride over and dress appropriately.
Its Thursday, so lets ride bikes! We will be heading south to the Campbellville area via Watson before riding back up to town on 4th and then 25th. The A group will be riding a little further up 4th before heading back towards Arkell.
** Post ride some folks will be gathering at the Wooly for a social. It was originally advertised as last week but should be the last Thursday of the month. Feel free to join us even if you didn’t get a ride in tonight **
