Sunday Gravel Ride | Aug 1st, 8:00 am

RIDE CANCELLED due to wet forecast, or perhaps we should just say ‘postponed’. This ride will run on Monday August 2nd starting at the same time and location.

Long weekends leave towns quieter than usual, which is an excellent time to take advantage of what’s in our own backyard. This route uses the best south Guelph has to offer, plus a lot of gravel and two-track further down. We will stop halfway at the The Danish Place, (which is open again – yay! … just not when we get there – boo!). Bring your own snacks – and a mask just in case.

The forecast is iffy at this point. Check back here for a weather cancellation posted no later than 7:00 am.

If this ride is cancelled on Sunday, it will run on Monday starting at the same time and location.

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. Check the schedule for complete details.

Recreational Gravel: 21-24 km/h average
Intermediate Gravel: 24-26 km/h average

Advance sign-up required. Click here: Sunday Gravel Rides.

Start location: The Guelph Youth Music Centre – GYMC

Start time: Please be ready to pedal at 8:00 AM

Sunday Gravel Ride | July 25th, 8:00 am

RIDE CANCELLED   Slick mucky trails and a few other compounding factors have led to the cancellation of this ride. We’ll try this route another time. The road ride is still on.

This is a slightly longish one but has a perfectly placed snack stop halfway in Elmira. If you’ve never been around the Floradale reservoir or through Wilson Flats (backwards – this time) you’re in for a treat. We also cut through Edna and Daniel Martin’s Mennonite Maple Syrup farm. Sorry, no Sunday sales. Too bad, a little syrup in your water = yum + zip!

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. Check the schedule for complete details.

Recreational Gravel: 21-24 km/h average
Intermediate Gravel: 24-26 km/h average

Sunday Gravel Ride | July 4th, 8:00 am

A chilled plate begins this multi course affair with an amuse bouche of G2G followed by some Wilson Flats. The meat and potatoes of the ride are grass fed and northern, pairing well with Carroll’s Creek’s eau de swamp. We’ll then sample a midway snack (literally) at The Right Spot in Alma. Irvine Bridge is a delicious entree before a dual sampling of both of Elora’s rail trails with just a hint of Fergusian reduction. A seldom used Side Rd 6 North is a welcome digestif for the ride south. And the Speed River Trail is the dessert course that brings us back to the GYMC in time for a hot lunch. Vegan option available. Definitely contains nuts.

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. Check the schedule for complete details.
