Date/Time: Sunday June 13, 10:00a.m.
Coordinator: Jeff Dashkin
Distance: 75 km
Pace: 22-25 kph
Elevation Gain: 900 m
Description: wheels roll at 11am sharp!
It can sometimes get cold on Highwood Pass, so let’s ride thebhighest part at the warmest part of the day.
Enjoy the scenery on Highway 40, and ascend the highest paved road in Canada from the North Side. About half the ride is above the winter gate, with no cars on that section of the road (shown on map).
Please come prepared with clothing for changeable mountain weather conditions. We will be gaining significant elevation -- even on a nice day, it will be colder higher up and the long descent can be very chilly.
Parking: Start from Wedge Pond day use area -- it's a nice spot for a tailgate social after the ride.
Park Pass: Reminder! As of June 1, you must have a Kananaskis park pass to visit the park. See: https://www.alberta.ca/kananaskis-conservation-pass.aspx
