Itinerary:
This ride replaces the Tuscany to Anderson LRT ride scheduled previously. The Red Line in the south is down for maintenance over the weekend, so Anderson station is out and the ride now ends at the Rundle station.

Again, this is a point-to-point ride with return by LRT. The Tuscany and the Rundle stations are on the LRT Red and Blue lines. 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, then east on the Rotary Matamy Greenway on the north side of Stoney Trail, travelling through Royal Vista, Sherwood, Simons Valley, Kincora and the Evanston ponds.

The route is changed here. We ride through Hanson Ranch and on along the Panorama and Harvest Hills escarpment. Next we go along the Airport Road pathway to access Saddleridge and the Genesis Center where we stop for lunch. Wraps and sandwiches with chipotle and other delicacies are available at the Jugo Juice shop in the center, but bring your own fare if you wish.

We continue the ride in Taradale and Martindale, follow the Whitehorn Greenway and finish at Rundle station.

The route is downhill generally but with two up- hills.

The ride will have regrouping at intervals, corner guiding if necessary, and a sweep.
