|This is a point-to-point ride with return by
LRT. The Tuscany and the Anderson stations are
on the LRT Red Line. The idea is we take our
bikes to the start with our vehicles, or by
using the LRT; after the ride we return to
Tuscany or other point by LRT in small groups.
The ride is being staged on a Saturday, a day
when no time restriction applies for the
transport of bicycles on the LRT.|
Route. From Tuscay LRT station, we ride the
Rocky Ridge and Royal Oak pathways, gaining 65m
elevation. Afterwards the route is downhill,
with a 220m decline in elevation.
We ride east on the Rotary Matamy Greenway, on
the north side of Stoney Trail, travelling
through Royal Vista, Sherwood, Simons Valley,
and Kincora. Next come the Evanston ponds and
the Hidden Valley and Beddington pathways. We
ride south on the Nose Creek pathway, stopping
at the 35 km. mark for lunch at the Spark
Science Center. You can buy lunch there or
bring your own.
We continue on pathways next to the Bow River
and on both sides of the Irrigation Canal to
Glenmore. We veer west on the Riverbend
pathways, Southland pathway, and Willow Park
Drive bikeway, finishing at the Anderson LRT
station, where we can have coffee at Starbucks
before boarding the train.
On the way we will visit briefly the new David
Richardson Memorial Disc Golf facility.
The ride will have regrouping at intervals,
corner guiding if necessary, and a sweep.
