Been wanting to do this loop for years, and now that we are almost at the longest day I figure why not? Just wish I was doing the A ride so I could get dropped on those hills!
WARNING! This route will have some gravel sections, not the type to ruin road bikes but it exists nonetheless. The roads were fine last time I rode them a few years ago… Always take it slow but steady on gravel.
Other route notes, human workers were repaving out at 6th line and 20th last week so be mindful of the bump at that intersection. After that it’s gravel to 26. Stay single file on Wellington road 26 as it can be busy.
4th line is also gravel and includes a climb and descent, take it easy on these sections. I will remind people as we approach.
The A ride will continue onto the long climbs on 17th to sort out the climbers from the puncheurs. They will also hit a gravel road just this side of Erin, no attacks on that gravel climb! Actually why not, I wont be there.
