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).
