Itinerary:
We will be starting from the Fish Creek Glennfield entrance. Our plan is to complete the ride before the parking lot gates are locked at 8pm.

The plan is to do about 2 hours of night riding, so you need to have night riding lights.

Preferred lights are a 900 lumen handlebar lamp and 250 lumen helmet mounted lamp. As a minimum you must have at least a 10-watt or 250 lumen handlebar lamp, along with a helmet mounted lamp. An inexpensive headlamp is not sufficient to light the trail.

Scott has a spare pair of lights if someone is itching to try night riding - first come, first serve.

This event is best suit for experienced riders. There will not be a lot of hills to climb on this event and the pace will be geared towards fun, not torture.

Required Items to Bring:
- Mountain Bike, well maintained
- Helmet
- Bell (required, city bylaw)
- Tool kit and spare tube
- Water
- Good lights, at least 10 watts or 250 lumens
- Batteries good for 2+ hours
- Layered clothing for cold temperatures
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
- Personal first aid kit
- Extra batteries for riding lamps
- Snacks

How to Get There:
