I made it further than I thought I would on a day I picked a starting point but had no set plan on where to go with some fleeting thoughts on what to do.
*Ride as much singletrack as I can on the drop bar Polish wonder bike.
*See how far I could go on a bridge run.
*Start in the valley, climb out and ride north into the country.
The ride ended up being paved, gravel and some singletrack through Terwillegar and crossed every bridge until I got to Hawerlak where I wanted to investigate the destruction… I mean construction the city is doing closing the whole area for two to three years. I skirted around the outside and soon was pushed into a path that lead to a steep staircase which took me to car hell as the commute home was beginning. Saskatchewan drive took me to the Uof A farm and I finally found the old school paved path in the middle of apartment Armageddon.
The climb up Whitemud ravine is still as evil as I remembered it.
The Cameron Heights start took me below the Henday and into Terwillegar where I saw my first of many many many e-bikes throughout the day. Did I emphasize there were lots? I did see lots of older people on them which is great because they are getting out but I did wonder if one of those behemoths break down what that person will do. I could not imagine one of those old people trying to pedal that monstrosity back.
The ride featured lots of stops where I took my time. Sub concisely I would fumble with things to prolong the time spent resting. Was it my brain telling me I'm tired?
