The road is clear over the Highwood Pass. The plan is to ride from the Peter Lougheed side, over the pass to the far gate and return. Expecting some spectacular mountain views and quiet tarmac as the road is still closed to cars. This will be a moderately paced ride as it's my first longer ride of the year. It's a big day out but for every climb there is an equally fun descent. 105km and 1300m ascent. This event moved from Friday June 1st as the weather forecast for Sunday is much better.
