15 km Novice, 40 km Beginner, 62 km Intermediate, 92 km or 125 km Advanced.

Cost:
$10/person for the meal (pay at the ride, however you MUST RSVP so we have enough food for everyone.)

Mid-ride snack

Too long? Try just 40 flat km from Alberta Beach to the country store at Darwell and back, or the 15 km ride that goes west then north to Gunn and back to Alberta Beach with plenty of time to join the big after-ride feast when the 3 groups arrive together to celebrate their adventures.

The meal is at 3:30 pm to allow everyone to eat or at least see each other at the meal. (If weather is bad we will still have the meal – a feast without the pedaling!)

RSVP required by April 3rd (millie.s@shaw.ca or 455-1924.)

This year I’m looking for volunteers for support driver and ride leaders.

Please call Millie at 455-1924 or email: millie.s@shaw.ca
