By: SeanA 60km fixed gear (or singlespeed) loop, at night, on Calgary's incredible pathway system. Ideal gearing suggestion - 46x18. Good lights are a must as we will be in total darkness for most of the ride. Expect to be riding for about 3-1/2hrs (fast) to 4-1/2hrs (a little slower). We will do our best to keep the group together but it is not a priority so make sure you know the route.
We will have 2 stops/regroup opportunities -
1st stop, Amphitheatre in Fish Creek Park near the old ranch. We'll rest for about 15-20 minutes.
2nd stop, Diamond Cove Overlook, pathway spot overlooking Bow Bottom Trail, Anderson Rd, Deerfoot Trail. Same format, we'll rest for 15-20 minutes before the last stop on The Riverwalk.
*** IMPORTANT UPDATE ***
Due to rising river levels there is a very good chance that we will encounter detours around flooded areas so be prepared for wet feet and perhaps the need to hop a fence or two. Not sure how the detours will affect the total distance so be prepared for a goonie adventure.
This is a self-supported ride - be prepared!
There is one opportunity to bail out on the ride at Canyon Meadows C-Train station about 2 hrs into the ride. This is a good option for those who want to participate but are unsure of their ability to complete the ride with the group.
