Event Details

Let's ride the BLT Trail to kick off the month-long challenge. It will be a leisure ride, so everyone of all skill levels and families are welcome.

We will meet at the trail parking lot next to Coke-Cola Vending on Lakeside Park Drive. We will break into groups by skill level and speed. This will allow a steady flow and prevent any bunch ups blocking the trail. You are welcome to do any distance you wish, 1km, 5km, 10km or the full 13km of the trail (26km to the end and back).

The BLT Trail Association is also celebrating International Trails Day. Join us after the ride at St. Andrews Anglican Church for a free BBQ and kids games. More details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/2155378647812406/

Bring water, there are no water sources or bathrooms along the trail.

Please follow trail etiquette when ridding: http://blttrails.ca/bicycle-etiquette/

Hey team,

I spent my day on June 2nd riding indoors, the rain deterred me, I just got a cast put on.

Is there any chance to organize another ride, or a ride similar to the BLT?

For sure! Maybe sometime mid-month we can organize another ride (and another at the end). The rain didn't bother us and kept the bugs away. I'll keep you all posted. Perhaps on the 16th?

I ended up not making the group ride, so would be interested in one.

Maybe another section of the rails to trails, or a section of the trans canada trail (salt marsh and beyond)?

Is there a rain date or is it rain-or-shine? Thanks

We will go rain or shine. Looking at the forecast, the rain should stop before we ride. As the weather changes quickly and without warning, dress appropriately.
