Is this even possible in a day?

Think you've got what it takes to tackle this monster ride? This is the ultimate link-up of single track in the Bow Valley with minimal double track and road between trail. Be the first to complete this punishing course. Best ridden in the listed direction for maximum flow.

There are lots of open dry sections however there are also many freeze/thaw hiker packed icy sections. The good news is that most of the trees that came down a month ago have been cleared.
