Sunday Oct 11th 11 AM Gravel Ride – All Members

11 AM Start – Don’t Forget!

This Sunday’s Gravel ride is a long-ish one. For those who missed the Floridale excursion a few weeks ago here’s another chance, yet a completely different route and direction.

We will have a ‘carry your own’ snack stop on the damn at Lake Belwood and a rest/re-fuel stop at the ‘Right Spot’ in Alma at halfway. Bring cash/card and a mask for that.

If the group splits, we will regroup throughout the ride and no one will be left behind. Try loading the course into your bike computer if you have one. RWGPS has lots of on-line help.

Start time: 11 AM – Mornings are colder now!

Start location: Guelph Youth Music Centre

Register HERE. Note: All steps in the form must be completed!

The ride is capped at 15 participants. Once the cap is reached, the registration link will automatically close.

Radar is showing a bit of rain toward the start of the ride, but clearing shortly after. Might be a little damp at the start, but it’ll be gorgeous after. RIDE IS ON!

Lets’ try this again. This is last weeks cancelled gravel ride redux. It’s looking good for this Sunday and we’re excited about this route.

We’ll be meeting separately from the ‘Moderate’ riders. Our meeting place will be the South end of the parking lot near the building (see image below). 

We’re going to head up the Kissing Bridge trail, over the ‘Flat Side of the Bridge’, check out Sandy Hills, then wind our way over to Elora for a nice coffee break at about the 50 km mark.  We’ll aim for a 22-24 kph average, depending on the makeup of the ride. 

To join the ride, you will need to complete and submit the sign-up form, found HERE. All steps listed in the form MUST be completed.
