Every year for the past 9 or more years, a group of STARRT members have headed to Jasper National Park for a great weekend of cycling, photography, running, walking and of course great eating, drinking and company. This year we were not able to make affordable group reservations in Jasper so this prompted us to think about something new.
So this year we are going to CANMORE!!
In the past few years we have had 2 groups of cyclists so that there is something for everyone. We plan to still some type of ride each day for each group. We don’t have any formal support and pitch in on snacks and picnics. We will make dinner reservations for Sunday night, but Friday and Saturday are left open. Having gone myself, I can tell you that it is a fabulous experience!!
We will need some suggestions for cycling routes and restaurants so please let Ian or Joanne know if you have any in mind. We have not made any group bookings so you will have to MAKE YOUR OWN RESERVATIONS.
Once you have made your reservation, you will also need to register for the event on the STARRT website.
Here are some accommodation suggestions;
Canadian Rockies Chalets - www.canadianrockieschalets.com/rooms.html
Some people have already made reservations here – please note that there IS NO HOT TUB at this location
Rocky Mountain Ski Lodge - www.rockyski.ca/accommodations-en.html
No matter where you want to stay, book ASAP as you can always cancel later if you change your mind!
Although we will be in a new place, it will still be stellar mountain scenery, good food and great fun!
