Everyone's welcome!!!!! This ride will be all pavement. This will be a social ride....aren't they all.... Collectively we will decide the route when we meet. I'd like to be back before or around 4pm. At the first light entering Calgary from the Trans Canada turn left on Stoney trail heading North. At the second light which I believe to be Tuscany BLVD turn left. Go straight heading West. At the third light you are at the Tuscany Sobeys. There is a Starbucks there I'll be the one on the charcoal K6-1000, with the Givi top case. I thought we'd ride out West maybe the 1A. either to Banff or Lake Lousy. Have lunch and ride back. Again I'm totally up for options. "This ride is intended to be a meet and greet"

Re: CALGARIANS UNITE RIDE AUGUST 27TH

As it happens my friend can't attend as she is attending the Mozart In The Mountains concert with her Mom. I will be there. If you are taking 1A how about I meet you in Cochrane at the Tim Hortons for 10:00am. Since I'm already in Canmore, I'm hoping we end up eventually in Lake Louise and then I'll depart at Canmore on the way back. Will be great to meet some local folks. I'm planning on moving to Cochrane, Calgary, High River or Oktookes, once I get my feet under me

Wolf,
I think that by the sounds of it we'll end up doing the Highwood pass ride. If we start in Longview-Kananaskis then you would only have a 15minute ride home. Would that be cool?

Gents,

It was great to finally meet all of you today and what a fabulous day to go riding. :lol: Can not wait to see the pictures that Night-Wolf took.

I can honestly say that I have never ridden the Wee that hard before and now know there is a whole bunch I have been missing. :twisted:

Hopefully we can get together again in a couple of weeks for another ride. I threw out the idea of doing a Calgary, Radium Hot Springs, Golden ride. The GPS says it is a 620KM trip from Calgary, might be a bit longer that we want to do ?

It was awesome for all of us to get together today!!!!! We couldn't ask for better weather. "Boy the one thing about riding in the mountains is they sure do block the view"!! :lol: I bet Stampeeder still has a smile on his face :P I am looking forward to seeing those pics...I'll hound night_wolf tomorrow at work for them. Let's get together for a pint on of these nights. So we can share some more farkles. Better yet lets get more Stomers out!!!! P.S Now you know how hard you can push that 650....told you she goes.... :twisted:
