Coordinator:  Robert Somerville

Your commute to the ride starting point may take longer than anticipated due to heavy traffic.

Please leave enough extra time to get to the starting point (15 minutes ??) 

The Cochrane Rodeo is also going on at the same time!


Gaylene H. recommends the following route to the ride starting point:

I recommend going north on Lockend Road, west on Big Hill Springs Rd across 22 onto Weeden Trail to Horse Creek Rd and then south. 


Type of Ride:  Road Intermediate to Advanced- Anticipated Pace 20-23 kph, One Large Hill Climb

Distance: 78 km

Elevation gain:  541 metres

We will head up Horse Creek Road until we hit the "T" intersection on TownShip Road 292, Turn Left (West) on 292, then Right on Range Road 52 , Head North until the  Hwy 579 intersection is encountered. The Water Valley Store is about 50 meters to the West, on the North side of Hwy 579.

Some food is available at the Water Valley Store (under new management), which WILL be open. 

  The coordinator will stop at major intersections to make sure that no one is left behind.     Coffee or other beverages will be an option at the end of the ride.

Bring water, possibly a snack, a helmet, a spare tube, appropriate clothing for the forecast weather,  and small toolkit. And money to buy food and drink at Water Valley.
