|This ride is called the Dunbow Road Classic because of the
wide open terrain and the flat and rolling roads through
farmland SE of Calgary. There are no services on this route,
other than the start/end points. The ride begins heading east
on Dunbow Road, which ends at 112 St and turns
south. At 15 km, turn left onto SR 552 and head south
and east, crossing a wooden-decked bridge. Continue on to
SR 799 (at about 33 km) and turn right/south. Follow SR 799
for approx 6 km to SR 547 and turn right/west. There will be
an optional lunch/snack stop at a cemetery at the halfway
point on the west side of SR 547. Continue west on SR 547 for
about 12 km and turn right/north onto128 St. This connects up
with SR 552. Turn left and cross the same wooden bridge
heading west again. Ride past 112 St to 32 St north, and turn
to Dunbow Road and turn west/left, returning to starting point.
