Climbing Camp

September 14 - September 16

Weekend Schedule

  • Friday, September 14: Drive to Hinton. Some of us will be staying in the Ramada Inn. Be careful about booking a non-cancellation rate. It’s September, in the mountains, and snow is a real possibility. You may want the option to cancel if snow is on its way (or has arrived).
  • Saturday, September 15: Drive to Jasper town site to begin the ride @ 10am. Head to Mt. Edith Cavell, then loop back to climb Marmot Basin.
  • Sunday, September 16: Hotel checkout, then drive up to Miette Hot Springs for a 10am start. Descend Miette Road. Then ride to where the Athabasca River widens out and runs shallow along the edge of the highway. U-turn, head back, and climb up Miette Road to where we parked.
  • Sunday, September 16: About 1pm, take a soak in the hot springs. Clean up, share a meal, then drive home.

Are you coming? Then please email Coach Kevin with the location of your hotel, and what your cell phone number is. I’d like to have everyone’s number with me to keep organized and for safety if needed. coaching@velocitycyclingclub.ca
