Route B - Legion to Selkirk and return

An introduction to faster group riding with FOG

Distance: 59.6 km

Sprint Locations: One

 

Begin with the Slow Ride up Main and then River heading north on the west side of the Red River to Lockport. The pace is held to approximately 30 kph until Lockport (somewhat faster if there is a strong tailwind). A brief pause at the old Skinner's to divide into ability groups (see the Groups page), then continue north into Selkirk to the Selkirk Bridge (River Rd).

 

Most times there is not a formal Selkirk loop ride. Early in the season a number of riders will turn back at this point, crossing the Selkirk bridge to the east side of the Red and following Hwy 204 back to the Legion, but after the early season most will elect for a longer ride and proceed on to the 'Big Bridge.'

 

Re-grouping points: the NE corner parking lot at Eveline St and River Rd in Selkirk and at the junction of Hwy 204 and Hwy 44 just outside of Lockport on the way home.

 

Sprint points:

  1. On the way north - on Eveline Street at the southern town limits sign. In the fast group there is often a few kilometre lead out and speeds may approach 50 kph for prolonged periods.

 

 

*  Routes may vary slightly depending on conditions.

** Roads are not closed to traffic. Riders must always put safety first. Do not cross the centre line of the road. Cars may back out onto the road or slow suddenly to turn.
