  • Your most epic cycling ride

    Just as the title says what was your most epic ride?

    Mine happens to be my annual ride from WEM all the way down to EIA using nothing but the back roads. I start by taking 178st all the way till it changes to lessard road, then turn into the wedgewood area down the closed road that is now a walking path, spit out into Cameron heights then down the AHD getting off at the windermere turn off, then down 170st SW all the way till i hit the range roads then hit hwy 19. total round trip is about 60 km, time taken about an hour and half both ways, sometimes more if there is a stop involved.

    Your most epic ride

    Driving 20 miles on the highway to the coast with an elderly dithering relative. We cowered and silently screamed in the back seat all the way. It was epic for all the wrong reasons. Sometimes at night I wake up in a big sweat reliving the journey.

                My most epic rides were the two flights that I had with The Snowbirds.

                        Are motorcycle stories allowed, or does it have to be the kid's bike variety?

                              I'd have two different rides to share. One is actually an 11 day ride from Halifax to Dartmouth on a tandem with my wife. That was about a 750 km ride.



                              The other was a ride from my place to my old home in Lacombe on my ride bike by myself. 135 km in one afternoon, just less than 5 hours to do it. Was a good solo ride along 2A, which is not bad on the shoulder.
