RIDE CANCELLED. The rain might hit us as early as 7:15, and it’s going to be quite the downpour. That will be super dangerous if we’re out on the road, even coming back into town. An unofficial ride will depart at 6pm though, if you’re feeling lucky.
Tuesday is the night of the week that all members can find a speed group they enjoy riding with, or maybe since the year is almost done and your legs feel good you want to push yourself out of your comfort zone and try something a little quicker. Either way, the route is the same so you can see how you have progressed in fitness week-over-week, or worst case scenario not be lost. Please note: some groups may be combined based on sign-up numbers and available ride leaders.
Stealing James’ route from a couple of weeks ago, that got rained out:
Sunday is looking like the perfect day to get on your road bike! If you’re new to riding east of town, this ~110k route is for you. We’ll start through Limehouse, descend Olde Base Line next to the Cheltenham Badlands, go up the legendary Forks of the Credit climb, and poke our heads into Erin from a donut (or fritter) from the legendary Holtom’s bakery. My favourite!
The ride starts at 8am from the Library’s East Branch at Watson and Starwood. Bring enough food of your own to make it ~75km at a pace averaging around 30km/h until we get our bakery stop.
We’ll do the aptly named and classic fall colours ride, with a stop in Campbellville. Don’t forget your mask! As usual meet at the East end library at Watson and Starwood and we’ll keep the pace comfortable for everyone.
Well, it’s the last official club ride of 2019… and it’s looking like rain. Let’s hope the forecast turns around. We’ll do a combined ride (all Sunday levels) clockwise to the south. Bring warm clothes!
