Chaparral, Walden and Legacy 40
Coordinator: Peter Bradbury
This is new and extended variant of a ride done once before.
The route starts along the Bow River heading south, goes along the Lafarge pathway, and loops back through Chaparral Valley. It ascends to Chaparral Ridge, travels through Walden, and circles around Legacy. We stop for a picnic lunch at the Legacy lakeside. The route next travels back through Walden and along the Chaparral pathways. Sundance, Somerset, Shawnessy, Millrise, Evergreen, and Shawnee Slopes come next. The finish is along Fish Creek pathways, with coffee or ice cream at Annie’s.
The ride will have regrouping at intervals, corner guiding if necessary, and a sweep. Bring lunch. Bring your route tracking device for more enjoyment, and the possibility of leading this ride or a good variant next year.
Location: The Ranch at Fish Creek. Directions: Follow Bow Bottom Trail south, almost to the end. Turn right into the Ranch parking lot. Washrooms are available in the Administration building. Please arrive 15 minutes before the start.
