One Hill. 70 km. Departure time 1000. Total Elevation gain..335m
Riding west out of Ft Qu'Appelle you'll travel around Echo and be treated to the finest piece of new pavement that our Province has to offer! After riding around Echo you'll return to Ft Qu'Appelle and start heading south on Hwy 56 to Lebret. You'll need to keep your head up to enjoy the winding road and spectacular view. Gentle rolling hills will have you shifting gears and thoroughly enjoying yourself after you pass through Lebret on your way to Katepwa. There's an Aid station in Katepwa and really nice washrooms,so take a break, fill your bottles and head back north to Lebret where you'll face your first solid climb of the day up to Balcarres on the old highway.
At the top of the hill you'll turn left back back to Ft Qu'Appelle, finishing your ride with a thrilling descent back into the valley. All bike rides should end this way!
