Itinerary:
* NOTE - Greater Bragg Creek Trails Association requests that only fatbiking (tires greater than 3.7 inches)are used when trails are snow covered or soft and easily damaged *

With all the recent snow it will be too deep for regular mountain bike tires!

Forecast is 0 for Saturday so the trails should not get too soft. Snow might still be too deep in some places though.

We will chose trails at the time and ride whatever trails appear to be in the best shape. The plan is for about 2-3 hours of moderate riding.

There is no carpool, but may be able to connect people if needed via email.
