2015 Chief Mountain Ride

Chief Mountain Border Ride

June 7, 2015

The chief mountain border crossing ride is a scenic mountain ride that is just under a 50 km out and back ride that starts just outside the Waterton Gates. The ride to the border has two climbs that are challenging but the view is worth it and there is one descent. The ride back has one climb back to the great view and two descents and the last one is really fun. There will be an after ride BBQ and some free swag.

Agenda

  2. Leave for Waterton from Lethbridge at 0815
  3. Arrive at the starting point, Maskinonge day use area at 0945

August rides

Hi, everyone!


As for August we havea couple of rides coming up!

We are planning on a road ride from Magrath to Del Bonita on Aug 17. We will try to provide a sag wagon as we did for the Waterton ride. The meeting spot is at Safeway at 0815 and the plan is to ride out of Magrath around 0900. Please RSVP if you will be riding and if you are able and willing to carpool to Magrath.

Total distance will add up to ~96km.

 

We are also having another ice-cream ride on Aug 24. As the last time - the ride is slow paced and ids are more than welcome! Just show up at 10:00 am at the Nicholas Sheran parking lot and enjoy a Sunday stroll through the park with a Dairy Queen visit afterwards!

 

An e-mail was sent out to everyone as well.

 

Hope to see you out on the rides!

 

Cheers!
