Chief Mountain ascent
A 50km ride to the Chief Mountain Border and back to our starting point. The ride to the border has 2 climbs (about 8 km) with one descent. The ride is through the scenic Rocky Mountains on a lightly travelled road. Although the road condition has been poor in the past the surface has been greatly improved due to recent work. Along the ride Headwinds will provide a SAG wagon to support riders and providing water and basic snacks if needed. We plan to finish the ride with a BBQ hosted by Headwinds at the Maskinonge Picnic Area outside of the Waterton gates.
- Meet at the Fairway Plaza Safeway parking lot at 8:00-8:30. Leave for the Maskinonge Picnic area at 8:30 once carpooling is arranged.
- Start riding at 10:15 – 10:30. Complete the ride and BBQ at 2:00.
- There is a nominal fee of $10 to help cover the support wagon and BBQ costs. Fee can be paid the morning of the event if you have not already signed up
- All riders must be members of Headwinds Cycling Club.
