Is anyone leaving from south or north end with an extra seat?


#4

I would but I’m riding from home this week.


#5

Hello! I’m visiting from Ottawa and I’m planning to join this ride! Is there an address I could plug into Google maps that will take me there?


#6

Here: Burger King entrance.

Bayer’s Lake

Which route do you guys usually go? I do Whopper a bit, but only stick to the way I know, which is probably the simple way. I want to learn more of the trails there but I don’t want to slow you guys down, especially at Whopper.


#8

We won’t slow you down, I’m sure.

We don’t plan it too much since we need to accommodate the group, but I was thinking of doing Suzies lake and then take the power lines out by turning right at the tee.


#9

lol, I’m not worried about you slowing me down. I’m worried about me slowing you guys down.


#10

I’ll be there tonight. My 4 year old son signed my permission slip to give me the OK.


#11

Never worry about slowing us down. We are not there to race :smiley: We want to socialize while having a good ride and help the MTB community.


#12

I’m usually at the back of the group and happy to be “sweeper”. No worries about being slow.


#13

I’m not sure who it was that asked, but no, usually our rides don’t go until nearly 10:00. Tonight was the exception, not the rule. Usually the rides finish up around 9:00.

Hopefully you’re not in the doghouse with your wife and are able to get out for another Tuesday ride soon!


#14

Thanks, @jetter for taking point!


#15

Great to see so many new faces too.


#16

That was me @Jetter. No worries! I was home by 10. I had said 9 and never sent an update so she was a little worried. All good though!


#17

That was a great ride guys! Thanks for letting me come along! I’ll bring more spare tubes next time! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:


#18

You had one, what more do you need?


#19

It wasn’t enough! I had another flat after we split up… And ended up jogging the bike back to the parking lot for the last couple of km. It was good cross training! Lol!


#20

Yeah sorry, @RealC. The ride took longer than expected with the flats and large group.
