Thumb Good riding in Edmonton?

Hey there, Alberta riders!
I'm moving from Estevan, SK to Edmonton. My job is relocating me and I should be there early summer. Anyone part of a adventure riders club? Would love to meet up on some early morning trail rides and hit whatever the road throws at us. My GS is not loving my cold garage and is screaming at me to take it out .
hope to hear from the local guys!

I have a buddy who rides a lot with Alberta dual sports. The country out west is excellent. Not sure about Edmonton closer in I know Red Deer South. Bear Berry was awesome but it's been along time since I was out that way.

Bikes are like women. What you think you want, and what you want, change after the first ride.

Yeah get out with the ADS guys, they have coffee nights all the time. the first thing you want to get is a copy of the "Backroad Mapbook" for Central and Northern Alberta. I'm down south, but I worked up near jasper, nordegg, hinton, Rockey mountain house lots and the area is great. from Edmonton you have to go quite a few miles west to get to the foothills but your GS should be up for it.

Not sure what your looking for (paved, gravel, dirt, single track, mud) but look up the black gold beemers (blackgoldbeemers.com) mostly road trips with either all pavement type or a mix of pavement and gravel back roads. Meet Saturdays at the airways in nisku (no strippers at breakfast) at 9 and ride afterwords during season. I organize the may long weekend ride (4 or 5 days into bc or USA all pavement). Good group of guys mostly getting close to retirement age except me at 31. Also you can sign up for al the bmw stuff as we are a bmw moa chartered club. Unless you don't like old guys. A guy from the club organizes most of the bmw off road stuff in Alberta and bc too if that stuff interests you.

There's a pretty good crew of inmates in Edmonton. Check out the Edmonton area geo cache and schizo chatter threads to meet a few. See ya on the road.

Grab a map, make a plan, get going. There is a lot of "day trips" you can make from Edmonton. With all the creek ravines in and around the city, you will be surprised what you can get yourself into just by looking around a bit. I live 150 km north of the city and when I have the time, love the ride in on the gravel back roads.

Welcome to the city. I'm a transplant from a little further west. The riding isn't great in the local area, but the people are very good. Check in the Scitzo thread on the main Canadian page and try your wheels out on the geo cache thread on the same page. We've got a great group of riders here.

2014 Vic Trail Ride Season Kick Off Sunday May 4th Ride...

All dual sport bikes

Starts at 11am at Tim's on 89ave & 101st (53.70037,-113.20542)

Ends Smokey Lake hwy 28 & 44th ave for supper. (54.11009,-112.485114)

It is the Season Kick Off Ride that is causul gravel roads for 100 kms one way from Ft Sask to Smokey Lk, and a great way to meet lots of dual sport riders in the Edmonton and surounding area as well as many from a far in the province.

79 showed up last year, so we broke into 3 groups of ruffly 26 ish.
After supper in Smokey Lake you can team up with new found friends to ride slab or gravel back to Edomonton of your choice !!!

Come one come all.

JB.
