Staging area and Route Description
This ride will be staged at 84 Lafarge Lane, Londonderry NS.
This ride will provide two route options: Novice and Intermediate/Advanced. All riders should be familiar with their bike, have trail riding experience, and come ready to meet new riders and explore new trails! Both routes have been laid out to provide alternate trails based on group preferences/technical abilities and each will provide beautiful scenery surrounded by the fall colours.
Novice riders can expect a combination of tight woods trails, gravel roads and an introduction to single track with some sections including loose rocks, puddles and bridge crossings that will be accessible but challenging for most novice riders.
Intermediate-Advanced riders can expect a mix of wood roads and single track, with hill climbs rocks and routes that will be accessible but challenging for most intermediate riders. Mentors will be stationed to provide coaching and assistance as needed throughout the ride. This will ensure all riders are able to conquer their ride with confidence!
