It was kind of hard to pick a true top five because I had some pretty top notch rides throughout the year. It was a short span though, pretty much from June to October with no Winter rides making the cut.
#5. June in Berta
One of the most insane storms that I have ever got caught in close to Concordia University. The clouds were out in the beginning but I had greatly misjudged them . Sewers were shooting up water. Cars had just stopped driving in the middle of the street. The hail hurt and was relentless as I tried to find shelter after climbing out of the ravine.
#4 September The Great
Click The Link
Just an all around great ride where everything came together quite well kind of unsuspectedly on a route that is heavily ridden.
#3 Science Park Redemption
I never liked this part of the valley and this ride it totally kicked ass. The creepy old men were there sitting in their vehicles again and I believe once they all finally leave the Science park will one no more.
#2 The Murder Tree Diaries
All amazing on an amazing bike. Everything just came together perfectly here. on a night shift tun=rn around yet! Say whaaat?
#1 Rainy Day Exploring
This was the one. I think this one tops last years ride of the year too. I have fears of turning into a full time gravel rider as I get older and older and these are the rides that will do it. The weather was terrible but I finally rode to Fort Saskatchewan from the valley and it was quite memorable.
