Thursday Sept. 5 A/B – Last weekday club ride of the year!

Well, folks, this is it. The year’s very last official club ride to take place during the week.
Let’s revisit a route from early on in the season. A classic loop down Watson, across 36 through Moffat, back up 4th, and a swing through Eden Mills before the finish on Arkell Road.
The B ride will work together to keep a solid, steady pace; while the A ride…well, will likely be much more spirited.
It’s been a great season – let’s finish it off with another great ride.

Sunday Long Ride, August 12th 9am

Let’s try this route again. We’ll head South on what should be some very scenic roads to Waterdown and explore a couple categorized climbs. We’ll stop for refreshments at the Copper Kettle Cafe in downtown Waterdown, before making our way back along First Line back to Arkell.

As Gabhan said in his post, it’s looking like a slight chance of rain, but hopefully it’ll hold off for us. Final call to be made by 8am the day of.

Thursday A/B – July 19th, 6:30pm

Should be a fun route with a little bit of everything. We’ll go West to some familiar, but not as frequently-visited roads, followed by a return to the East and then up the Col and the ‘Berg. In keeping with Stage 9 of the Tour earlier this week, there is gravel on this route. Two sections, in fact! (See the route map for details – they are short and fun).
The B ride will keep it civilized and work together to maintain the typical 30-32 km/h pace. The A ride will no doubt be less civil, but will likely stick together for roughly the first half of the ride before the attacks begin.

Saturday June 9th 9am – Gravel Ride

Well, looks like the weather may actually cooperate this time!

A nice 80km loop from the library back downtown exploring the gravel roads up to Fergus, the rail trail over to Elora (with a coffee stop, if so desired!), and then the gravel roads and the G2G rail trail back into Guelph.

Should be a great day to explore the lesser-paved routes. Lower that tire pressure and get ready to grind the gravel.
