2021/03/13 – Oliphant solo

I missed the main group and had a good solo outing up Oliphant way. Marked a new path/shortcut, cleared a bunch of ground around the MX track. Did some “ride by” video work.

Here’s the moto-x loop I talked about, this is the last and quickest lap I had. I suspect I was sitting for a good fraction of it as I was getting tired. Higher resolution version at : https://tbrown.ca/20210313-motox-loop.webm

2021/03/06 – death by snow snow

Certificate of completion officially noted for: Rob T (who asked for his), Alex H, Colin B, Colin K, Chris C, Me, and Todd E.

Route planning and Navigation FAILURE noted for Me. That pass went up to 725 meters. I found it and have run it many times, I should know it’s height, and that 700+ was likely to be “problematic”. I will note that I did stop when the jeep tracks disappeared, and that others rode past me. I wanted to continue, but I did think a discussion was appropriate.

(More scouting needs to be done, the logging co seems to be cutting off routes faster than normal. )

(That was the pass over the shoulder of Mt Muir, from Muir East to Butler.)

2021/01/09 – Rob T Skutz Falls ride.

Rob T ride up to Skutz falls (from burnt bridge) and then whatever…

“Whatever” basically was a run down Skutz Falls main (with a detour via the base of the powerlines) to Holt. Holt to Wild Deer, and then it got fuzzy and side tracked. Was supposed to be over Eagle Heights to Riverside, but ended up being an attempt for Louis lake. But there were so many trees down on the track that we were happy just to get out without having to backtrack. Exit was basically down the main access to Louis lake and out the holt main gate.

I have gpx, maybe video, to come. (and yes, it’s been a bit of a break over the holidays.)
