ALL ROADS NO LIMITS

XFONDO will push you, but it won't hurt you. You'll get dirty, but not bloody. You'll pant, curse, and scream but finish with a shit eating grin that would worry your mother. Then you drink beer.

XFONDO is not an exclusive gravel cycling event. Rather, it's an adventure on all the terrain a bike can take you. It's a visceral experience, real and perceived with your new event buddies, sharing an experience that will be a full on challenge for all your skills.

Trail Name: Sea to Sky Trail - Derailacon
Note from SLRD-Alison Macdonald "The section is called Derailacon and it goes from Wedgewood to the Soo Valley railway crossing, about 4 km".

Trail in good shape Aug2019, but a few alders need cutting back. Colleen MacDonald letsgobiking.net
