1st Adventure Ride – UPDATED Date

IMG_4989

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

Cyclist pedaling through beaver pond

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.

Heads up from friends at SFN

Repairs will be in progress starting today Sunday, November 6, 2016 at the Cold Water Creek bridge on the Red Pine System at Hiawatha Highlands. Please be aware that decking is being removed and passage across the creek is not recommended for your own safety and to prevent further bridge damage. Please watch out for volunteers and repair equipment when riding on the Red Pine trails. The plan is to have the bridge reopened on Sunday, November 13th.

Thank you on behalf of the Soo Finnish Nordic Ski Club.
