Harvest, Coventry, Panorama, Country Hills 25 km.
Ride Level: Urban ride, newcomers and intermediate, easy pace
Coordinator: Peter Bradbury
The route goes through Harvest Hills, Coventry Hills, Panorama Hills, and Country Hills in a big circle starting from Harvest Hills Crossing Shopping Center. It ascends into the hills on a long easy gradient, almost all on pathways, with two short hills and a long, gradual hill we can handle in low gear and rest.
We ride east and then north along the Nose Creek pathway and around the Harvest Hills lake. Next, we proceed into Coventry Hills to see its lake, a village, the longest art mural in Canada, and a nature park overlooking a broad valley. Traveling west, we go through Panorama Hills' ravine, lake, and bluffs with spectacular views of the city. We return to the Country Hills pathway next to the golf course with more city scenes. (Gain 173 m.)
Location: Harvest Hills Crossing Shopping Center, southeast of the Harvest Hills Blvd. and 96 Avenue NE intersection, between T & T Supermarket and Tim Horton's.
