Route D - Birds Hill Park Loop

The classic FOG ride

Distance: 96.5 km (add 2.5 km with East Beach, add 5 km with Clandeboye Rd extension)

Sprint Locations: Five

 

This is our usual ride.

 

Begin with the Slow Ride heading north on the west side of the Red River to Lockport. The pace is held to approximately 30 kph until Lockport. A brief pause at the old Skinner's to divide into groups (see the Groups page), then continue north through Selkirk to the bridge over the Red north of Selkirk at Hwy 4, south back to Lockport, then east to BHP along Hwy 44 before heading back to the legion.

 

Within BHP the group may take either the North or South road.

 

 

 

 

Re-grouping points:

  1. rolling re-group within Selkirk,
  2. at St. Peters Rd (Hwy 508) just after 'big bridge',
  3. the junction of Hwy 204 and Hwy 44 just outside of Lockport, and
  4. either just inside the east gate of BHP or at the East Beach within BHP.

 

Sprint points:

  1. On the way north - on Eveline Street at the Selkirk 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.
  2. On the way north - the high point of 'big bridge'.
  3. On the return - to the Birds Hill Park sign just before the East Gate entrance on 206.
  4. On the return - to the top of the overpass over Hwy 59 at the West Gate entrance of Birds Hill Park.
  5. On the return - the west end of Pritchard Farm Road 50m before it meets Henderson Hwy.

 

 

*  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.
