Update Ride cancelled, Rain is coming through, even if it stops when the ride starts at 9:00 the roads will be wet and the temperature is only going to be 2 degrees with 50 km/h gusts, Stalwart people can still show up but it will not be an official club ride.
a Please note the start time is now at 9:00 am and this will be the last combined ride until October. Next weekend we will offer a separate short and long ride each with its own ride leader.
The weather forecast isn’t looking great for Sunday with rain and a high of 5 degrees so please check back by 8:00 am Sunday to see if the ride is still on.
Scheduled stop will be in Kilbride for drinks.
Good luck to all our riders doing the Paris to Ancaster ride, hope the forecast improves!
You can just smell spring in the air, well maybe after you sweep the snow off the flowers. Have no worries though, since the weather is looking fantastic on Sunday we will be offering two distance options for Club Members which we normally don’t do until the weather warms up.
There will be both medium and long distance rides that will follow the same course until km 47, at which point riders doing the medium ride will split off back towards Guelph for a 75 km ride. Those doing the long ride will continue on North for a 122 km ride. There is a small gravel section on the longer ride.
Stop will be in Belwood for drinks on the longer ride, no stop scheduled for the medium ride however if anyone needs fluids we can definitely stop at km 41.8.
Sunday is the Tour of Guelph and it would be great if as many club members who can, join in this great ride for charity.
Due to the Tour we will be scheduling one combined out of town ride for this Sunday starting in Primrose which is just north of Orangeville.
The Primrose Creemore loop takes in some lovely terrain with some great climbs. The drive up takes about one hour so plan on leaving at 7:50 to be able to start the ride at 9:00 am from Primrose.
In Primrose we park in the Subway parking lot.
If you would like to carpool please post here, I can take one other person with me and others can also take people.
We will stop in Creemore for food and drink. I have two routes listed, the second one skips the extra climb by Creemore and makes the ride 10 km shorter for people who want less KM.
