    yaaaa but where else could they start it.. longview doesn't really have the infrastructure for that many people. Also wonder if they would have issues getting parks on board for another ride to the top since K-country =/= provincial park

    Bowing out of this one - last year was rough and this year looks like it's going to be worse, and this year's MS Ride sucked up all of this year's motivation for wet rides.
    Have fun anyone who's doing it!

    Nice! The first day made the 2nd so great, but it was still pretty brutal. I don't think I've ever been that wet or cramped out in my life (I got a flat 10k in or so...nothing like sitting on a guardrail to change a tube during a downpour!)

    Oh man that would've been a tough one.. With that condition, we literally stopped for only 2 minutes to get food/drinks at the pitstops then go again to keep ourselves warm. Actually, we didn't even need drinks.. lol.

    I was at MEC today and they've scheduled Sept 7 for the Fall Century Ride (60/100/160km). Nothing for spring unfortunately.

    Hmm - that's too bad about dropping the spring ride. I'll likely be racing cross the weekend of the fall ride. Is the MEC duathlon happening?
    On topic of duathlon, there is also the Blitz one in Bragg Creek on September 14th: https://duathlon.blitzevents.ca/

    I didn't see anything posted, just the Cyclocross race and the Fall Century Ride

    The nice thing about MEC was that it was $40.
    Think I'm signed up for Branch Out that weekend. Guess we could also do a Beyond group ride up Highwood Pass before the road opens.

    Just out of curiosity, I emailed MEC to see if the schedule was final or if they might still add it and they confirmed no Spring this year. Oh well. I'm hoping I can finally get to try out the Highwood Pass this year. I planned to last year, but then I got into that accident.

    Just go up before the road is open. It's way nicer with no cars around with a high chance of bear spotting.
