Please answer these questions in the comments section during the sign-up process, in addition to signing the waiver. Your coordinator has been instructed to remove you from the event if you do not answer or comply with these questions. Failure to follow the guidelines could result in you being evicted from the event even after it has commenced. Your coordinator has this discretion and you could be reported to the club if you create problems.

If you do not wish to follow these temporary restrictions you should not sign up but are welcome to continue after the restrictions have been removed. trail/page7.html blackshale-to-peninsula/ kent-to-blackshale/

The idea is to ride both directions from near Spillway Lake, include the suspension bridge at Blackshale Creek, to the Black Prince turn. We could ride from either end but we will decide that later.

Approx 12+km
Pace will be relaxed and we will regroup as needed to ensure we remain loosely grouped.

For people wishing to convoy or carpool, there is a location however you must inform the coordinator you wish to meet there. If you wish to meet at event you must get the updated meeting place based on which end we will start at. There is no cell service if you are in the wrong place.

Your coordinator hasn't done this trail before so there may be some route finding involved. Input on which end to start at or where to meet is welcomed.
