Sunday 07/18 Gravel- 8:00am

A slightly different route for this weekend’s Gravel sampling. We’ll head northeast along some of the familiar roads of last year’s Big Gravel Ride. Then we’ll turn north and hit the rail trail heading into Fergus, with a slight detour to the Belwood Country Market for a refreshment stop (butter tarts highly recommended!). We’ll then turn westward on the Elora Cataract Trail and take it most of the way into Elora, before turning south and heading back along the Guelph-Elora Trail and back to the start.

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

2021 Rides Are Starting!

We are back! Rides start on Tuesday, June 22nd. We will be introducing our new Tuesday All-Members Ride (“The TAM Ride”) that evening, then working through our recently updated Weekly Ride Schedule from there on out. 

If you haven’t already joined the club for this season, please do so HERE.

All participants in SRCC activities should follow the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) Progressive Return to Cycling Guidelines and Return to Sport along with the latest Covid-19 safety recommendations from the Ontario Government, Ontario Public Health, local public health units and medical experts.

Please be sure to join SRCC and review our Group Ride Guidelines and Rider’s Responsibilities before your first club ride in 2021.

With the OCA’s Progressive Return to Sport guidelines, all club rides for this season will continue to need to have limited numbers, and all members will need to preregister for a ride before participating.

How to Sign Up for Group Rides

This year, SRCC will be using a central ride registration site. Members will need to signup for rides via the SRCC Signup Site.

Only those members who have signed up via the ride registration site will be able to participate in the scheduled club ride. When they’re full, they’re full! We will keep you up to date as we progress through the Steps of the Roadmap to Reopen.

Sunday October 25th – Gravel – 11am

Morning update: RIDE IS ON! It will be a cool one, so time to break out that cold weather riding gear. Layer up!

11 AM Start – Don’t Forget!

Alright, let’s try this again and hope the weather is more cooperative!
This Sunday’s gravel ride will take us south, on a rambling, exploratory route around Puslinch and then back up into Guelph.

Final call regarding the weather and a go/no go decision will be made no later than 10am on Sunday morning.

We will stop for a rest/refuel in Morriston. The ‘A Change of Pace’ restaurant is there if anyone needs a quick coffee. It’s recommended to carry your own fuel/snack just in case, though. We’ll stop on if deemed necessary by the group.

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.
