My favourite route. Scenic and a bit of everything. ~50km from start to the finish at Arkell and Watson.
The Ride is on. However, we will shorten the route to avoid some rain that is predicted to hit at noon. We will remove the Bellfoutain section and loop through Erin instead. We will keep an eye on the radar on route and make seem real time decisions about possibly adding to the route based on updated weather info.
For those of you not doing the Tour de Guelph here is an alternative ride. The actual distance back to our stoping point in Arkel is 97km. We have the option to shorten or lengthen the route depending on what people want to do before or once we are out on the road. No one will be asked to do a longer ride than they would wish to do. Food stop in Bellfountain.
Medium Ride and Happy Mothers Day. We are Using the same route from the ride I led a few weeks ago, however, the gravel road section has been removed from the route do to the roughness of the road as a result of the ongoing construction. We will also pass the highest point in halton region; bring some Oxygen bottles! We will stop for drinks and food in Erin with a few other re-fueling points en-route if needed. The distance to our de facto end point in Arkell is 85km. We will be focusing on riding as a safe and cohesive group. Since there are some big rollers, we will allow folks to climb at their own pace on the big hills and then we will regroup at the tops of the hills. High Temp of 15 on the forecast, dress well since it will be much cooler than that when we start.
