We bundled up and got the rain gear out for one last TORCA Beginner group ride at Bert Flinn on Saturday, November 23rd. We had a mix of new regulars, some old regulars from years past, as well as, some new faces.
This will likely be the last group ride we’ll lead this year but look forward to perhaps making these a regular event in the New Year.
If you had the chance to join us on one of our group rides or would be interested in coming out to one, if they start up again, in the new year – leave a comment below.
We had an awesome turn out on Saturday, Nov. 09th on Burke Mountain. We were able to split the group into a beginner and a beginnermedite. Mix of trails gave everyone the chance to ride on some wet trails and to challenge their riding skills.
This was to be the last of our little mini-series but we’ve decided to do an encore! There is going to be another ride back at Bert Flinn on Saturday, Nov. 23rd at 10:00 am.
It is a free event. All you have to do is fill out a waiver for TORCA if you plan to attend. If you have already filled one out – no need to fill out another one.
Another great Beginner Group ride with our friends at TORCA. This week’s ride was through some of the trails at Bert Flinn Park in Port Moody. If you haven’t ridden these trails check them out on Trailsforks. The trails are nothing but Hero Dirt right now so it’s a great time to get out and ride before the winter rains hit.
There is one more to go next Saturday starting from 9:30 am to approx. 11:30 am.
It is a free event. All you have to do is fill out a waiver for TORCA if you plan to attend.
