U.R.A.L. Ride

 

Mark your calendars!  This years ride is Saturday, August 22th 2020 and will depart from Destination Cycles at 10:00 am.  We had a blast last year making some dust and climbing our way up Powder Face trail with a convoy of Ural owners! 

 

We are riding out west into Kananaskis Country.   We will be heading down Sibbald Creek Trail, similar to last year.  This time we will continue straight west onto the Highwood pass (HWY 40) and join up to Spray Lakes Trail to head back down into Canmore.  This is a good mix of black top and back country, scenic riding.  Round trip from Airdrie and back is right around 350 km and around 80 km of that is gravel.  Spray Lakes Trail is 60 km of gravel and does have some washboard and rough spots.  It is a little rougher ride than Powder Face was last year and has a decent decent down the mountain into Canmore.  It will be a slower paced ride on Spray Lakes Trail with a couple of stops planned to check out the scenery. 

 

Since we are heading south west again, the same can be done as last year for anyone not wanting to meet us at the shop if you live in Calgary or out west.  You can meet up with us at the Petro Canada gas station at the corner of 22 and the Trans Canada.  We should be rolling in around 10:30-10:40 from Airdrie.  

 

Pack some snacks, waters, and a lunch.  We will be planning to have a picnic style lunch at one of our stops along the way.  We plan to wind up back in Canmore for supper sometime around 5:00-6:00. It will be a full day event this year and we likely won’t end up back in Airdrie until around 8:00 with the riding time, stops, and supper.  Cancel the later afternoon and evening plans for this one!
