Derek H. Ulrich has offered up a killer Cogal in westernmost Canada. There is a lot of time to plan for this so no excuses.
Here’s the route:
It should be firmly stated that the ride will not be going up the Mountain Highway (Fromme) on the gravel road as I’ve ridden up there enough times in the MTB/FR days. That and a local shop rode up there on their bikes and had to sort out 5 flats.
It will happen on August 24th, 2013. This is tentative, depending on any events that may fall on the same day. Start time is 8AM. It will be leaving from here:
Meet up for espresso here to fire it off.
Break time will occur here, after climbing Grouse, no grousing.
Apres Velo will happen here.
The ride can be described as ~130km of suffering. 3000m of climbing over six hours. It hurts. A lot
Dutch Keepers are welcome to come, as the Dutch are quite familiar with running to Canada.
