Sunday Road Ride | October 24th @ 11:00 am

Looks likely to be a pretty chilly one with the potential for some wind so make sure to dress appropriately. Some tried and true roads with a few new ones that aim to please. No café stop on this route, but a couple of opportunities to fill bottles or grab a cheeky Mars bar…

The ride starts at 11am and we will ride as one group with a 29-31 kph target, adapted to the inclinations of the participants.

Advance sign-up for these rides is required. Click HERE to reserve your spot. Please make sure you sign up by Sunday morning at 9am at the latest so I know who to expect.

This ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE. Sure, it’s really late in the season, but better late than never!

Ride starts in the parking lot of the East End Library at the corner of Starwood and Watson.

No Sunday Road Ride This Week

The official Sunday road ride is taking this week off as it begins its taper towards next week’s Big 100 (Sign up here. It is going to be epic…).

For those of you who would still like to head out on what promises to be a nice day for riding, here’s a suggested route that includes a couple of nice climbs and potential for a rest stop in Glen Williams if desired.

Thursday Advanced Rides | September 2nd @ 6:00 pm

While the calendar page might have turned and arm warmers become more and more of a thing we still have enough daylight to squeeze in some weekday fun! At least for now… Boo. This southerly route carries on the now-familiar “avoid the chipseal” theme and as a special gift to those riding tonight we go down rather than up 1st line into Eden Mills. It is a little more distance than the last few Thursdays but should get us home well before the sets.

Thursday Advanced Rides | August 12th @ 6:30 pm

This route quickly became one of my favourites after having ridden it for the first time a couple of years ago. It has a little something for everyone: a power climb and a punchy climb sandwiching a nice smooth flat section along 7th line. We then head up the Sammon Run in Rockwood before finishing up through Eden Mills and Arkell. The A group gets a *little* bit of extra distance but avoid the now chip-sealed climb on 4th line. It should be a fun one for all concerned.

I’m going to keep an eye on the weather throughout the day but if the ride goes ahead, which I hope it does, it is going to be a hot one! Remember to fill your bottles and stay hydrated.

CANCELLED Thursday Advanced Rides | July 15th @ 6:30 pm

UPDATE #2: Severe thunderstorm watches from Environment Canada and official club rides do not mix well. It’s possible that things will stay clear and you might be able to muscle your way through the 50kph winds this evening on a solo ride, but there will be no grand depart from the East End Library today.

Having spent the past week poring over ancient texts trying to figure out how to appease the Sumerian weather god Hadad, I think that we have an excellent shot at a good night for riding [turns out I was wrong about this…]. The B & C groups will do a nice loop out on SR 15, down Dublin line and back through Eden Mills with a final push up Arkell. The A group will loop back for a little extra distance and a second serving of the Eden Mills climb!

Groups will ride at the following paces:

Thursday A: 35+ km/h average
Thursday B: 32-35 km/h average
Thursday C: 30-32 km/h average
