YES it’s going to be really cold this weekend … PERFECT! Time to get out there and confirm your frigid weather gear setup, layering, anti-goggle-fogging techniques and how to eat and drink – still (dehydration/bonking are common in extreme cold rides).
So here’s your options:
Ride the newly groomed trails (thanks Wayne Bishop) at Fort Whyte to practice and pack them for the Winnipeg Whyteout – Fat Forty Festival:
Sat and Sun at 10:30 AM – meet at the Fort Whyte Alive parking lot/cafe
Link to the Groomed Trail Map or try 2 Wheel Revolution
Actif Epica Recon Ride with Dan Lockery and Pete McAdams.
Date: Sunday, January 17th, 2016
Location: St-Pierre-Jolys, we will meet in the parking lot of Le Routiere restaurant (next to the Shell station).
Purpose: To scout/preview the Actif Epica course between St. Malo and St- Pierre-Jolys, along the Crow Wing Trail (note: this section is part of both the regular and long version of the route).
Important Note: All participants join us at their own risk (e.g. please be safe, wear appropriate winter riding clothing, a helmet, bring blinky lights for improved visibility, enough food and water for the ride and a basic repair kit). Citing a famous quote, “YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU”, so please respect the nature of a winter riding adventure, it can be unforgiving.
Hope to see you on Sunday!
