Sunday Gravel Ride | October 10th, 9:00 am

Weather prediction is warm. Should be around 17 degrees at 9 am. This ride is a wee bit shorter to allow for the long weekend commitments people need to get back for. We should easily be back by noon.

There will be a halfway stop at the Lost & Found Cafe in Elora. Be sure to bring cash or card and mask for that.

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. However, these groups may be combined depending on turnout. Check the schedule for complete details.

2nd Last Tuesday All-Members Ride of 2021!! August 31st, 6:00pm

This week the weather looks great!

Next week… who knows?

POST RIDE SOCIAL! Only two TAM rides left this season. After the ride, we will be heading over to our awesome sponsor Fixed Gear Brewing (at the Alma St. location) for some post ride bevies and food. Come dine, partake and celebrate this year of riding with your fellow club members (while we still can!). There will be lots of space on the patio for all of us.

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.

This ride requires sign-up in advance. Please do so here: TAM Ride Signup

Start location: The Calvary Baptist Church, 454 Arkell Rd

Start Time: Please be ready to pedal at 6:00 PM

As with all of our rides, this ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE.

Please arrive a few minutes early and ensure you are in the group area that you signed up for – see the map below.

Sunday Gravel Ride | Aug 22nd, 8:00 am

This one is called Kissing Flormira Wilson for obvious reasons. It was rained out a month ago, but the forecast is looking favourable this time.

If you’ve never been around the Floradale reservoir you’re in for a treat. We also cut through Edna and Daniel Martin’s Mennonite Maple Syrup farm with permission. Sorry, no Sunday sales. Too bad, a little syrup in your water = yum & zip)!

We will be taking a snack stop at halfway in Elmira at the ‘Local Renaissance’ cafe or the Circle K convenience store across the road. Bring cash/card and a mask for both.

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

Check back for weather cancellation posted no later than 7:00 AM.

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

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
