Check out the 2knee ride points so far for the 2014 season below!  Who will be the king and queen of the Valley...only the Hyper Up/Down 2knee Ride will tell!

We also wanted to let everyone know that if you've done 4 out of the 6 2knee Rides this summer, you can get either a FMBC T-shirt or FMBC Hat!!!  So, if you're at 3, make sure you come on out to the Hyper 2knee Ride, which is this Tuesday August 12, 2014.  Meet at the Hyper-ventilation sign at 6:45 for individual starts.  Let us know if you are racing up as we will send those people first.  If you are taking it easy on the way up and just racing down, we'll send you behind the spandex crowd :)

FMBC August 2014 Route of the Month

August 7, 2014 - 13:22

Here we go with the August route of the month already.  We are sticking with shady moderate climbs to help with the hot temperatures.  

Route:  Head on up Sidewinder to the traffic circle where you will get onto Eco-Terrorist.  Take Eco-Terrorist all the way through the boardwalks to Ridgemont Road.  Pop into Kid's Stuff, but just until you get to the quickest way to Splitting Bears.  Ride Splitting Bears all the way to Ridgemont Road.  Ride up Ridgemont Road for just a little bit until you get to the bottom entrance of Eric's Trail, which you are going to climb all the way back to Kid's Stuff.  Take Kid's Stuff back to Ridgemont Road where Kush starts.  Then you will ride all three Kushes.  When you are done all three Kushes, take the Little Chainring, Big Trouble connector (otherwise known as TR3) to Coal Discovery Trail, which you will ride all the way back to Old Stumpy and then finish at 13th street.

Check out the Strava Segment here: http://app.strava.com/segments/7839160 

Have fun folks!

FMBC JULY 2014 Route of the Month

July 10, 2014 - 21:04

This month's route is all about shady trails to keep things cool.

You are going to start out by heading to the Mount Fernie Provincial Park, crossing Lizard Creek and heading up Gorby.  Climb up Gorby until you hit Old Goat and take a left on to it.  When you get to the top of Old Goat, keep going up the technical climb of Megahurtz and Blackforest until you get to a double track Road where you will take a right.  Ride past the Haul Back T-bar to the top of Snake Bike and go down Snake Bite.  At the bottom of Snake Bite take a right up Gorby and climb up it.  At the top of Gorby, go straight and then loop around Cedar Bowl.  Head downhill on Blackforest - Megahurtz - Happy Gilmar (you get to Happy Gilmar by taking a right when you reach the Megahurtz/Old Goat junction).  Take the new Happy Gilmar down, which will be the next left after the Old Goat/Happy junction. Ride that out to the Bridgeview Connector, then to Sherwoody to Lizard Creek.

If you are doing the short route, at this point you can jump into the river.  If you want a longer route, take the single track through the provincial park campground and then cross the road and head up Hedonism.  Once to the power line, take a right and look for Mushroom Head, which you will climb up.  Head down the other side of Mushroom Head and then down Red Sonya.

Here are links to the strava segments:  http://app.strava.com/segments/7619497 (short)  and http://app.strava.com/segments/7619513 (long).
