An approximately 110km loop visiting 4 area Bakeries. Headwinds will cover the cost of bakery
items at each bakery (but bring some cash as you may want more or special drinks). There will
be a sag wagon provided and some shorter ride options. It is going to be a great ride and a
fantastic way to bring the riding season to an end. We hope to see everyone there.

The route will take the city bike path from Penny Coffee House to the west side of Lethbridge.
From there we will take Westside drive to Highway 3, turning into Coalhurst and stopping at
Kooyman Bakery. The route then heads out the back way of Coalhurst and will link with the Kipp

to Highway 25, where it takes you left into Picture Butte, stopping at Koster’s Bakery. It then
heads out of Picture Butte to the Highway 845 junction, turn left and head to Coaldale, stopping
at the Coaldale Bakery. It then continues on Highway 845 to the Highway 4 junction (Coutts

When coming back into town from highway 4 you can get onto the scenic drive bike path. It will
take you along scenic drive where you can navigate your way back to the Penny Coffee House.
