Ride Description:  The Thunder Lake ride has been going almost since the club’s inception. It is a long, leisurely ride from Onoway to Thunder Lake and back. We drive to Onoway on Saturday morning, park at the Petro Canada Station where we leave our vehicles in a locked yard, then cycle 88K west and north at a relaxed pace (18-20 K/Hr) with three rest stops. There will be a sweep. The coordinators organize meals. (At lunch in Cherhill, the fastest riders set out sandwich fixings.) We camp overnight at the Thunder Lake Provincial Park campground in a large group site. A tent, sleeping bag, etc. is required. Swimming is available depending on algae conditions. Saturday supper (ribs, sides and an awesome dessert) is mostly pre-prepared, but volunteer help will be solicited. (You may have to husk your own corn on the cob.) On Sunday, we ride 78K – east to Barrhead for breakfast, a lunch/snack break in Rich Valley, then ride south to Onoway, returning around 2 PM. The ride is van-supported and the cost is $100, plus money for coffee (and pie?) in Alberta Beach, ice cream when you arrive at the campground, a loonie for a shower, and breakfast at A&W in Barrhead on Sunday.
