The Most Scenic RR I could come up with ....

... will be this Wednesday the 17th at 6:30 just outside of Bragg Creek. We'll meet where Range Road 51 and Highway 66 meet just west of 22. This is on the back way out of Bragg Creek near the Provincial Park. People can park in Bragg Creek, at the school on 22, or at the Provincial Park and enjoy a nice easy warmup out to the meeting spot.

From the meeting spot we'll race westward into the majesty of the mountains and up and down a few hills and all that. We'll arrange turnarounds and race lengths when we get an idea of who is coming out but there will be multiple options so everybody will be able to race. The courses will go straight out and back along 66.

There is one issue with the course that I do need to mention and that is the 'Texas gates' that are found near the start and the end of the course. I believe there are two heading each way. Now I rode them with no problems on the weekend and I think the soluntion is for everyone to just take their time and neutralize the racing over them. There are also some significant but not insurmountable hills along the way but I want everyone to spread out and take it easy on the descents.

It is a scenic and beautiful course so I am hoping to get a couple of volunteers for the evening to handle the turnarounds. It is a short job, you get to see the race, and a great way to help out.

Meet @ 6:30 or leave @ 6:30? I'm hoping it's meet or I'll have to join on the second lap.

We'll try to start at around 6:30 but you can show up pretty close to then. This one iso nly one lap though so I'll wait a little bit past 6:30 to get it on the road to make sure everyone will be there.
