Hi Jeff, could you post a Google map link to the meeting location? Thanks!


Crusher Rd
Halifax, NS


Note, this is an active quarry during the day.


Too much rain, we’re cancelling this one. Sorry.

Keep an eye out for a ride Wednesday or Thursday depending on weather and ride lead availability.


That is a good call. The rock at Evil Birch (and there are a billion of them) is not grippy like the rock you find at Whopper or Fight. It is generally smooth and very slick when wet. A ride there tonight would definitely up the difficulty level of an already difficult trail (albeit one of my favorites)
