RIDE CANCELLED, rain incoming.
Quick note that next week‘s ride, and those following, start at 11am. It’s going to be a cool morning, maybe 8 degrees, getting up to 14. We’ll warm up at km 54 at the Flying Monkey and then head back. It’s a combined ride, so the pace won’t be anything crazy. Should be a nice day!
OFFICIAL RIDE CANCELLED. Between the humidex advisory, and the high probability of thunderstorms a bit later on, the official ride is cancelled. People may still show up at the library though.
Note the early start time! Simple route, counter-clockwise around Watson, 15, 6th, and 25. It going to feel like almost 40 degrees with the humidity, so be prepared. Bring lights if you got em.
A huge thanks to Speed River Bicycle for providing the prizes again this year! Here is your podium:
1st – Ben S (Velocis helmet + shop tee)
2nd – Mike D (Flare R rear light + shop tee)
3rd – Aaron P ($50 gift card + shop tee)
I honestly hope I’ve done the maths right, feel free to email me if you think there’s a problem. Will be in touch with the winners for prizing. Thanks to all of the club members who participated!

Ride cancelled due to rain. Watch the Tour!
New route, some gravel, then some rail trail, and a wee bit more gravel. Relaxed pace and quiet roads, this should be a good one 🙂
