1st Adventure Ride – UPDATED Date


Aarghh! My work has intervened and the first scheduled Adventure Ride will be postponed to Wednesday May 17th (instead of Monday the 15th). The ride will be approx 20km in length.

Ride will be a mix of single track, double track, ATV trail, mud bog and creek bed. Not too technical. If you can ride 20km on dirt (and a little rock, and a little water), this ride is for you!  No rider will be left behind.

Meet at the Hiawatha parking lot (by the Soo Finnish building) at 6:30pm.



Adventure Rides

Come join us for a 25-35km ride off the beaten track.  Adventure Rides will take the path less traveled.  Expect a mixture of double track, old logging roads, minor bush trails, beaver ponds and other natural impediments.  This will be a casual, but challenging, group ride.  No rider will be left behind.

These rides are suitable for intermediate and advanced riders due to the distance (if you’re enthusiastic, you can do this!).  Rides will be approximately 3 hours.  Peter is riding, so smile pretty for the photo gallery that is sure to appear after the ride!
