    Judgement day is nigh. Mountains anyone?

    I booked Friday off of work "just in case" to head up to Jasper to do a day trip. If anybody
    wants to join me let me know. I would like to hit the Overlander trail as it`s been years since I`ve been on there. The last time we spotted bears and heard strange things in the forest. Thus, there is no way I`m ever going there alone.

    Would be a good day of riding, after Overlander, a trip up the bench and down to North Face pizza, then home and await our judgements on Saturday...Gulp

    If anybody wants to: pm me or just post on here.

    I'd been in for some day trips out to Jasper too. This weekend doesn't work for me either, but I do have most every Friday booked off of work this summer for stuff just like this. Be sure to post up when you're planning on going again.

    I tentatively have Fri, June 10th off - how does that line up with your schedules?? It is my EDO so I can always rebook it for another day during the month...

    Sounds good. Hopefully with the long notice, others might be able to make the trip as well.

    P.S. You're welcome on the log. A few of us did some clearing a few days ago to clear out some of the trails that we were riding that day.

    Let us know how it went when you get back..

    We're (married out of shape couple but like to ride) heading out to Jasper some time the week of June 26.. maybe ride some trails but the prospect of meeting momma elk and the three bears are kinda scary (especially for the missus)...

    Is bike theft a problem? We'll probably tent camp it somewhere, and put the bikes in the car at night...

    The trip was kiboshed, the weather forecast and other factors unfortunately kept us from going.

    Bike theft is a problem pretty much everywhere you go (Edmonton, Jasper... all over Alberta, North America) If you take the smart precautions and keep the bikes locked in the car you did all you can do.If they want them badly, the crafty little d-bags will get them.

    Stop in at Freewheel cycle, they have great little trail maps, and will give you good advice on where is good to go at the time...

    That might work, but jsut in case you don't already know, the 24 Hours of Adrenaline in Canmore is the 23/24th and the Canada Cup race is the same weekend in Edmonton.....so you might have some riders that would be up for it that are otherwise spent or still in recovery mode....I know I'll be .

    Hope we can meet up at the end of July. You can have a good time on most any bike. I have ridden a hard tail on the trails quite a few times and at least one of the shop guys at Freewheel Cycle rides a fixie!

    I have to admit I love my dual suspension trail bike (5.5 in travel). It gives me more confidence and is certainly easier on the body on long rides.
