Below are sport specific guidelines to help you make an informed decision regarding the suitability of activities that you may wish to participate. They include hiking, cycling, paddling and cross country skiing and snowshoeing.
Please note variations can be expected with weather conditions.
Ride Types and Descriptions
Level 1 - Short, more leisurely rides, (20-40km), with more frequent stops, up to 15 km/hr.
Level 3 - Long, with breaks as needed, these rides are over 60km, more than 18 km/hr.
Discovery Rides – Essentially scouting trips to check out area trails or sections that the club has not done before. The nature of these rides is such that we encourage only experienced riders to come out as the condition of the trails and/or the distances to be covered may not be definitive. Riders should come fully prepared with tire changing kits, tubes & pumps.
Paddling Trip Grading System
Grade A - Beginner
We have developed a trip grading system that will help you make a more informed decision about whether to book a trip. It will help you understand what conditions on the water may look like and what skills will be required for such trips. Please note that a trip rating may be upgraded on the day of a paddle based on the conditions caused by the weather on the day of the paddle and a trip grade may be upgrade.
Volunteer Trip Leaders have the right to refuse anyone who they think does not have the proper skill level or equipment for their trip. May ask for an in-person assessment with Volunteer Trip Leaders prior to participating in any trips.
