OMBA Group Ride at Camp Fortune – Sunday May 27th at 12:30 pm

The Ottawa Mountain Bike Association would like to invite you to a cross-country group ride at Camp Fortune.

The event will take place on Sunday May 27th with the rides starting at 1:00 pm sharp so please arrive early. If you have never ridden out at Camp Fortune before or you have just seen too much of Kanata Lakes already this year then come join us.

The ride will be divided into groups based on ride duration, trail difficulty, and overall riding pace. We will determine the groups prior to the start of the ride. The focus will be to highlight the “all mountain” side of the Camp Fortune cross-country trail system.

There will be some grueling climbs but they will be rewarded by long, flowing descents and hopefully we will be able to introduce some of you to new sections of trail.

The team from Velo la Shop will be onsite with some tents and tools and will be offering mechanical support for the event. They will also have a BBQ going before and after the ride serving up free hot dogs. Feel free to bring along some after ride refreshments and whatever else you would like to toss on the grill.

This ride will proceed in the event of intermittent or light rain. In the event of thunderstorms or severe rainfall the ride will be postponed. Information about a cancellation will be posted on the OMBA forum the morning of the event.

Please remember that the ride will start at 1:00 pm so arrive early enough to get ready and allow us to organize the groups for an on time departure.
