Where: Staging from the Waskahegan Staging Area

When: 10:30am – the ride will start about 11:00

What: A ride in memory of Roger Tetrault, a long-time club member who we lost to cancer. Please consider making a donation in Roger’s name to support Skin Cancer (or an area that has special meaning for you) at: Donate – Alberta Cancer Foundation

How: Trail riding for most on their cyclocross or mountain bikes. Some will bring a road bike instead and ride the county roads for about 1:30hrs. After the ride there will be an outdoor BBQ with burgers (beef and vegetarian options) and soda pop. Maybe hot chocolate, depending how cold.

Please preregister by 9:00pm Thursday September 21 to join in this ride and help us plan food quantities. Members, family and friends are all welcome, even if it’s just for the BBQ. Each person attending needs to complete a signup form so we can plan the food order.
