The Gran Fondo Badlands ride begins at the Largest (blue) Dinosaur in the World. There should be little, if any, traffic. The roads are in great shape with smooth pavement all the way around the course. Heading along the North Dinosaur Trail right past the Royal Tyrrell Museum to the 100 year old Bleriot ferry, approximately 25 km. Stop at the aid station for refreshments, take in the scenery, enjoy the ferry ride across the Red Deer river (takes about 2 minutes!) pedal up the short but serious hill (12% – make sure you are in your small gear!), then back to town along the South Dinosaur Trail following the signs back to the community centre. This is approximately 50 km.
