First there was Roots, then Roots Extension followed by Roots Hyper-Extension and now Roots Hyper-Ventalation and it is open for business.
The builders put up the sign on last Tuesday night and are receiving riders daily. It was built by the Fernie Trails and Ski Touring Club in co-operation with the Fas Gas Townies Monday and Wednesday night cyclists.
It is a nice 15 kilometer evening ride from downtown Fernie, the return trip is a 486 meter (1600′) climb and a 1600′ descent. The loop is enjoyable in either direction however was created as an uphill to connect with the top of Roots Hyper-Extension. Access it from Coal Creek Road, River Road and the top of Roots Trail. Turn at the sign and start breathing hard.
The builders labored extensively to create this trail and deserve many cold beers. Well done.
