NOTE: We added a SAG (Teresa). The SAG will be responsible for bringing bike support, and additional camp gear if required. Members on this ride will have the option of having their gear brought in by SAG. This means that if you want a bigger tent, the SAG can bring it. The SAG will also provide a BBQ, and additional fluids.
Last year we scheduled a two day, toe into water ride, this year we will expand the experience. This year we are going to add a SAG (Support and Gear) and travel to three lakes.
This is an easy tour to two lakes, two campgrounds that will see our group ride a total distance of 125.5km for the four day tour. This will be accomplished in three legs, averaging 42km and each ride.
Gear up for camping consisting of packing your bikes with tent, sleeping bag, and smart camping gear. We leave Millet (Friday), and ride Wizard Lake Campground (2.0 hours), setup for the evening, and spend the next day playing at that lake, so bring swim trunks. On Sunday we ride out to Pigeon Lake Provincial Park for a ride that will take about 2.5-3.0 hours, setup camp, and enjoy a quiet evening. The next day, we pack up and leave by 11AM, to head back to Millet for a ride that will take about 4.0 hours.
