FOUNDER'S RIDE 2018

SUNDAY, SEPT 16TH, 2018

In honour of the Horizon 100 Founding Members join your fellow club mates on a ride through the beautiful autumn forests of Prince Albert National Park!

 

FOUNDER'S RIDE 2018 WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16TH.

The Founders’ Ride is planned for Sunday September 16th in Prince Albert National Park, (which requires a park pass or entry fee).

There is no charge for the ride, but all associated costs are the responsibility of the rider.

There are various accommodations in the park for those wishing to stay over the night before.

There are two start times, 9:30AM and 11:00AM, from the Waskesiu main beach parking lot, each with a different distance option. The ride goes south through the park, along route 263, and returns along the same route. As founder Ray Wight describes it: “The road has been completely redone and is now smooth as glass.  It is a great route to ride.”

The 9:30AM start is for riders planning to ride out through the park south gate and on to Christopher Lake, with a stop at a restaurant for lunch. This is a 127 K round trip.

The 11:00AM start, also at the Waskesiu main beach parking lot, is a ride just to the park south gate and back, which is about an 80 K round trip.

The start times were chosen so that all riders will finish their rides around the same time.  After the ride, everyone is invited enjoy a meal together at the Hawood Inn, in Waskesiu.

Please RSVP indicating which distance you plan to ride, and if you will be joining the group at the Hawood Inn after the ride, so that reservations can be made.
