If you go north of the Sundre turnoff, before the Caronline turnoff there are some oil roads that snake through, around burnstick lake, over James River and reconnect at the highway where Bearberry is, not a bad detour, but makes for a long day.

Thanks for the info. We'll have to see if we are still up for more at Sundre.

Timmies will be a zoo. How about we meet at the gas station at the intersection before tims? Can't remember the name of it.

Husky? Good place to meet, bad place to buy (ethanol).

I probably can't go because the DR still needs some work after the fork transplant. Should have it wrapped up this weekend. If I get done tomorrow, I'll be there.

If I get up and my dog doesn't distract me too much I might go the registry and get my plate and go for a ride tomorrow with a buddy.

I'll have to do some quick work getting gas, cleaning filter, and changing a rear tire, but I know he's itching to get out.

If anybody wants to join, let me know. I suspect TransAlta road or something and play around down at the river a bit depending if the snow has melted. If it has maybe venture off and do some mild trails.

I'm not certain I can but I'll check in before noon to confirm.

Already have plans for tomorrow, and a backup to those plans.

Provided they both fall through I'll be out there at 11am.

Tire changed, chain lubed, filter soaking right now, and pivot points greased. Bike is ready to rock!

waiprous trunk road to sundre. Sunday april 28 11:00 am. Good to go

Still on like donkey kong. 11:00 am

Lets meet at the Husky/macs at the corner of Quigley Dr and Westside Dr in Cochrane. At the intersection before the original meeting location of Tim Hortons. If anyone was headed to Tim Hortons they would see us.

I sent out a few invites so don't want to alter the meetup location drastically.

Next time I'll pick a gas station to meet where riders can purchase gas.

Lycan1, I look forward to seeing some fun roads from Sundre to Calgary.

Floss,

I hope your group has better luck than I did today. My destination was a windy gravel road south of Nanton. I was heading west and the wind was so strong I was blown off the road twice. When I was slightly past the point of no return I threw in the towel and headed back east.

To add embarrassment to my frustration, on my way home I was stopped at a traffic light in High River and got blown over! I'm not sure if the car drivers were offering me support or pitying me as I picked up my bike.

I won't be riding in those kinds of winds again.

Have fun on your ride. I hope to join you when our schedules coincide.

Ian

I am planning on joining you as well. Just got the suspenders back on the bike and the chain tightened. Ready to roll!
I'll be on a KTM530EXC and have a high vis jacket.

See you tomorrow!

It was very windy yesterday. Must have been worst on the highway with nothing to slow it down. Were you inured? I guess if you are going to get blown off the road what better bike then the DRZ400. But then again maybe a big heavey bike would have resisted being blown around.
