|Later in the afternoon after the Kicking Horse Cup road race, |
I checked out CBT trail starting from the single lane bridge...
pretty fun trail up & down - Golden
Next day, epic ride in Revie... to Frisby Ridge
Starting from town, west Hwy 1 to Hwy 23N to FSR...
9.3 km, 140m elevation, 27 min
9.4 km, 768m elevation, 1 hour
Frisby Ridge trail to highpoint - 10.6 km, 734m elevation, 1:14 hr
A very rider friendly trail suitable for new mountain bikers
Ultimate Frisby Downhill trailhead
The 3 guys on downhill bikes did not question me attempting this trail with my hardtail!
I could almost keep up to their dog...until, I hit a few longggg steep pitches where I walked due more to sketchy loose sand/dirt.
I was riding fine until I decided to bail, with the bike unexpectedly rebounding back at me... pedal to shin - hard, bar to ribs - hard.
Hurt, though knew it could have been worse. Scraped the rest of the way down. Saw two of the guys and the dog waiting for their buddy to return with the truck.
If the GPS clocked it right, this descent was only 2.5 km with a 577 metre drop in elevation! - STEEP
Rode back into town with a slight descent and a tailwind
Epic! well-rounded ride
4:10 hr, 54 km
1990m total elevation gain
|Wildflowers - OUTSTANDING!|
|back in Revie for Jan's birthday with home-made cakes!|
