4th Annual Foldie Fondo
Saturday, July 13 at 8:45am. Meet at 8:45; wheels roll at 9:00 a.m.
George C. King Bridge, south bank, East Village
By: Brett BergieThis is an inclusive ride. While the ride theme is meant to draw out folding bike enthusiasts, all bikes and their owners are welcome.
Join us on a Calgary Pathway ride that sweeps and curves along rivers, cruises over gentle hills, and sails along flatter terrain. Total distance is 60 km.
So long as there are no detours, the route will be exclusively on Calgary pathways. We will follow the Elbow River out of the core, approach the Glenmore Reservoir, and then proceed through scenic North Glenmore Park. We'll head down to and through the Weaselhead Flats before ascending along the far side of the Reservoir. We'll proceed to Fish Creek Park and stop at the cafe for coffee and treats before continuing on through the park. Our ride will then follow the Bow River through to Carburn Park, past the weir, and return to the core via historic Inglewood. The ride will end at Alforno Café and Bakery for refuelling.
We will stop on occasion for rest, lifestyle breaks, and good cheer.
If you don't have a folding bike, feel free to bring one or some of the following to feel part of the culture: billfold, folding multi-tools, flip phone, newspaper, paper crane, or even a bad hand of poker.
Join the fold! We're looking forward to seeing you and your bike.
