WHEN: Labour Day (Monday, September 7) 8:30 am bugle call and roll out
WHERE: Waskatenau, AB (75 minute drive northeast of Edmonton); meet at ball diamond (corner of 52 Street and 52 Avenue)
WHAT: 100-km gravel-road loop on a quiet, picturesque route we're calling "The Iron Victoria" (part Iron Horse Trail, part Victoria Trail)
WHO: Anyone up for a gravel-cycling adventure (and who doesn't mind a little dust)
- This is not a race (though times will be recorded); no prizes will be awarded.
- All riders will be given a cue sheet; then you're on your own.
- All riders must be completely self-supported. (Limited supplies are available at a couple of places on (Pakan) or near (Smoky Lake) the route.)
- Almost any kind of bike will work (cyclo-cross, touring, mountain, fat) but tires 33 mm or wider are strongly recommended
