So, Scott and I have been working together to design a slower paced, social route that will include a medium distance and longer distance for those who want to ride at the 28 to 30 km/h pace. We have created a 120 km route with a stop in St George (which I keep hearing about and need to explore) for coffee and fritters. A shorter, more traditional “medium” route of 85 km has also been created for those who would prefer the traditional SRCC “Medium”… and Scott will turn off early at Safari Road for that one.
If you are looking for long at a FAST pace then Gabhan’s ride will be for you. Our ride will be slower.

I am sharing this with the club in hopes that if we all take a bit of time to complete this survey we can make a difference. I have called in a couple of times (mostly concerning the stretch along Victoria Road and the one across York Road) only to be assured that it will be taken care of. York Road only increasingly gets worse. Anyhow, Sage discovered that the following survey is occurring on September 7th. Please take the time to complete…
Looks like Sunday is going to be a gorgeous day with low wind and a lot of sun. Sunday’s “Medium” ride will be “medium paced”…and long in distance. A trip down to Grupetto in Dundas at a pace hovering around 28 to 30 kph. This will be a safe and friendly ride focusing on endurance.
For those of you who would prefer distances around the usual sub 100 km length, you have options to turn off early and ride across Safari Road (please see alternate map below) for 98 km.
Bring a lot of water and nutrition as it will be a longer day and will probably get quite hot. We will stop for refills as necessary.

Option 2 to Carlisle (Alternate Map)
Looks like the weather is going to be much better for Wednesday’s Social Ride. Please keep in mind that this is a recreational ride with an expected pace of 28 km/h average. It is a no drop ride but, according to our Ride Description page you must be able to ride up to 2 hours, non-stop, at an average pace of 25 km/h or greater.
I have put together a nice route heading south-east to 4th Line Nassagaweya and down to 15th Sideroad. From there we will head back west, across 15 to 1st Line in Moffat, where we will head north to 25th Sideroad and back home the “usual” way.
Please bring lights, just in case.
