COVID-19 Questionnaire:
Participation in this event is conditional upon the acceptance and adherence to COC COVID-19 protocols (see link at the top of our home page). Failure to comply with these protocols may result in removal from this event and/or future events.

Please answer the following questions in the comments section during the sign-up process, in addition to signing the waiver:

  • Have you travelled in the last 14 days?
  • Are you showing any symptoms (fever, cough, loss of taste or smell) of COVID-19, flu or cold?
  • Have you been in contact with a confirmed or presumptive case of COVID-19, or with someone who has any symptoms of COVID-19, flu or cold?
  • Have you tested positive in the last 10 days or are you waiting for COVID-19 test results?
  • Are you associated with a setting that is currently having an outbreak and been instructed to get tested or self-isolate?
  • Have you read and understood the current restrictions that are club policy during the COVID-19 situation?

The Lake Minnewanka Loop is closed to vehicles Monday to Thursday from May 1 to 20th. Let's get out there and check it out! It's 13km around. You can do it once if you like, or, what we will probably do is do it once one way around, and then, after a break/snack we'll turn around and do it again the other way around.

This will be a relaxed-pace, low-to-no- pressure event. Come on out and have a good time. If you've "had enough" after just a little bit, there's no shame in turning around. At least you saw some mountains!

Required Items to Bring:
- A bike
- Helmet **No Exceptions**
- Gloves
- Snacks
- Water
- Tire repair kit, at least 1 spare tube. A chain repair kit suitable for the chain on your bike

Canada Parks pass or $$ for park entry

How to Get There:
Event Directions:From Calgary, drive West on Highway 1 to the Lake Minnewanka exit. I don't know what they'll have set up for parking, but I expect it to be a gong show. We'll do our best to be as visible as possible, and for your convenience, to find us, first find Nemo (our Toyota Yaris painted to look like Nemo the clownfish). Keep my cell number handy just in case, although I'm not sure we have cell coverage out there.
