This was a solo ride, and basically came out great. If you’re following in my footsteps, this is NOT a beginner ride. There is nothing very difficult in it, but it is more difficult than “graded mainline”.
A fairly leisurely ride with Bob through the Tugwell E loop. Meant as an introduction to off-road riding (beyond graded main-lines).

A Shawnigan loop was definitely NOT the plan. It was on my “TO DO” list, but not the plan. (With Tony and Wyatt.)

Went out solo on Tuesday. Was supposed to go back out to Tugwell E, but wanted to see if Butler was open. It was, so I went up it to see if the snow had disappeared, and it certainly was gone between the 6 and 8km markers where I got stopped last time. So I kept going…
