Route takes your from Science Park to Fort Sask and back following the Riverside Trail, gravel roads, paved bike paths and low use roads (mostly). Stop at Raven Crest Golf Course for a coffee and make it a fun outing. Best done when there is low traffic on the weekends (to get through the Sherwood Park area).
