Revelstoke – Move over Iron Horse its the Bicycles time to Shine!
Waking up at Wadey does not suck.
Today we were going to meet Jordy from the Revelstoke Cycling Association to ride the new Alpine Epic – Frisby Ridge.
As mentioned this 12.8km trail was funded by the CBT and CRSRD to create an alpine ride accessible to riders of all levels. They succeeded. You gain 720m at the high point in over 10.6km. The remaining mileage is to the lake and back. This gradual climb creates a fast descent on the way down! Remember, uphill riders have the right of way!
There are plans to build it to 34.5km ( see map at bottom)
Getting there: Off Hwy 1 West of the Columbia River Bridge turn onto Westside Road. Drive past Glacier House Resort at 7km and continue up the gravel road to the parking lot.
The trail is an out and back, beware of horseflies, blackflies and mosquitos.
