This 76 km Fergus-Elora coffee run should get us home by lunch and before any threat of rain. We’ll be crossing the covered bridge at West Montrose (someone please open a cafe here!). A cool Saturday evening should make for a perfect start as the day warm towards noon. Bring a little money for the cafe in Elora. See you soon.
A north and east ride combo to keep it interesting. Single file for a little longer than usual on a small stretch of 24 to downtown Eramosa. Should be a moderate temp evening, weather call will be made at 5PM at the latest. Bring lights as usual. See you soon!
A slightly longer distance this week at 48K to Downtown or 39K to the official finish in Arkel. We’ll continue working towards great communication up and down the double pace line and a steady level of effort – moderate on the flats, slow up the hills and fast down them. We will build to an average 28 kph max and work together to bring everyone along. And please remember the African proverb: If you want to far, we go together. If you want to go fast, come out and try the Tuesday and Thursday rides! 😀 Please bring the usual requirements: fun loving attitudes and lights. Also, check out the Safety and Skills page and General Ride Info and select ‘Wednesday’ from the side bar. Expect that we may split into two groups if the warm weather brings out many riders. We try to do a slightly faster and/or more experienced group followed by a slightly slower and/or less experienced group as we did last week. Looking forward to a good safe ride and seeing everyone. Summertime in May.
Yet another beautiful evening for a ride! Southeastern 42 km route from the Library back to Arkel – add another 8 to City Centre. Sunset is 8:31 PM – bring lights just the same. Click here for info on SRCC Group Ride Guidelines and here for info on The Social Paceline. And for those new to group riding show up at 6:15 for Group Riding Orientation . Tonight we’ll work on pace and communication up and down the line – no shortage of sand and other road hazards out there still!
