Hey! Kinda back to kinda normal!

EVERYBODY WELCOME, beginners too / especially.

This ride is 90%+ pavement, if it seems dry there are some little used off-road pathways but don't count on these, it will depend on who comes and what kind of bikes y'all have. Usually an interesting route, we've seen Owls, Porcupines, Coyotes, Rabbits, Skunks, small bush bashes (they thought they were getting busted, it was total deer-in-the-headlights) and one naked couple (probably too cold for that so don't get your hopes up).

Sunset is 9:41, and we'll be back by then so headlights are not needed unless you're riding home after.

Pretty good chance some people will end up at The Hose for some apres ride rehydrating.

From the meeting point we will ride South along the west side of the Bow, cross over at Ogden to the East side and down to Riverbend Park. Then up through the neighbourhood (optionally through Quarry Park), across Glenmore to the Irrigation Canal. Here either back to the parking lot or optionally past Max Bell, through the Zoo and back to meeting point. Total distance is 24 - 31 km but easy as there is little elevation change and all pavement.
