Winter has ended so it's back to autumn - right? Most pathways seem to be clear of snow again but MTB trails are probably quite muddy. So this ride will be an easy ride suitable for others preferring a steadypace or fairly new to riding.

We'll meet and head out for a couple of hours riding, exploring the pathways maybe to the north, maybe to the south, TBD.
There will be a craft brewery stop along the way. We'll pick a stop before we head out but Paddys BBQ, Citizen, Zero Issue, and others are often popular choices.

This will be a relaxed pace event with a flexible schedule, and a sociable way to ride and spend a Sunday afternoon. The goal is to ride 20-30km.

There is very little elevation change along the Nose Creek pathway and it is almost all city pathway. There may still be short sections of snow (unlikely) but most of the area seems to be free of snow now. Walk your bike if you encounter slippery sections and don't want to ride it.

We will be staying together as a loose group and regroup periodically if we get spaced out.

Weather is supposed to be sunny and warming up by the weekend. Dress accordingly and come socialize for an afternoon.
