NOTE REVISED ROUTE AS OF 9:00PM. Looks like tomorrow will be a perfect day for riding. We will head south into Halton Hills and make our way back home via the Flying Monkey for a coffee, brownie or other refreshment. Some different roads and scenery, a few rollers and a cruise past the mushroom factory.
The days are getting shorter but the riding legs are getting stronger. A ride with a few ups and downs which will test our skills to keep up a 28kph average. As usual, we will focus on smooth transitions and tight groupings. The weather forecast calls for a possibility of rain so a final call will be made at 5:00pm.
RADAR SHOWS A BAND OF RAIN AND THUNDERSTORMS MOVING THROUGH THE AREA AROUND 7PM. Even though tonight’s ride is unlikely given the forecast, we can still think about what could have been. In the event the ride is a go, we will head north to Oustic and then make our way back to Arkell via Rockwood. The ride is a little over 50km and we should be back in ample time before darkness. The final call on the ride will be made by 5pm.
It is going to be a warm one so we will keep the distance close to 80km and target to be done around 12:30pm so that everyone can enjoy the afternoon of Father’s Day. We are heading north and then southwest to Hespeler. We will have a short stop in Hespeler for refreshments and then make our way to Watson for the final leg home. Of course there is a little bit of gravel outside of Maryhill. Bring ample water and sunscreen.
