When we get back to the parking lot, Easthill Physiotherapy will have three different types of chili waiting for us, topped with cheese, bread, and salad... yum!

It was a great night out on the lake following a hot ride over the Lookout Trail. 42 riders came out to enjoy the 42C temps. The lake was refreshing as always and was nicely combined with the pulled pork and corn. These lake apres are amazing, the lovely folks at Nixon Wenger hauled everything down there for our enjoyment. Thanks to everyone who helped out!
