December 30 The Great Trail CX ride

Post by GarthC » Fri Dec 28, 2018 8:12 pm

Planning a cx ride on The Great Trail on Sunday December 30 with a stop at the Kinsol Trestle and Drumroaster Coffee or Prima Strada Pizza in Cobble Hill before we make our way back through Shawnigan Lake, up Goldstream Heights and taking the Great Trail back to Victoria.
It'll be a long one (145 km) with over 2000 m of climbing, but it'll be an epic way to end 2018.
Meet at Switch Bridge at 8 am.

Here's the route:

Holy carp, Garth! Both ways? :shock: Aren't you just wrapping up the Festive 500 thingy, too!?

When I grow up some day, I hope I'm half as fit as you...

Garth: I say this with the utmost sincerity (because I'm jealous)
