Sunday August 16th 8:00 AM Road Ride – Moderate 89K

UPDATE: RIDE IS ON. We may shorten the ride and the pit stop to get home before the forecasted showers. Let’s try Gabhan’s (ie, Meg’s) ride from last week again– nice meander east of the city. There will be a pit stop at Andrew’s Farm Market at 50K, bring a mask and some money for that. This nice little road ride will have you back in time for lunch.

Start time: 8 AM 

Start location: The Guelph East End Public Library. Plenty of parking for those arriving by car. 

Check back here for weather cancellation announcement, it will be posted no less than one hour before the ride.

Thursday A/B/C | Aug 15th 6:30 pm

My apologies–I thought I had this set to publish automatically during last night’s ride. Here it is now>>We’ll head out Hume/25 SR to Dublin Line (watch for potholes!), then back via Rd 50 thru Rockwood and Eden Mills. The 8 km finishing circuit for the Hammering ‘A’s’ returns to Hume and then back over Sharkey Hill to the church in Arkell. Bring lights.

Thursday A/B/C 6:30pm: The Solstice Ride

UPDATE: RIDE CANCELLED due to rain. Feel free to meet for an unofficial ride if getting wet is part of how you roll. May the sirens of solstice be with you.

Welcome to the (almost) longest day of the year. This ride heads westward so we’ll hit some roads that are less travelled as club rides—such as Chilligo Rd (one of my favourites). The A/B’s will ride the full 80 kms to Maryhill and Ariss. The C’s will turn off onto Speedvale at Mosborough to keep it to 65 Km. Be careful when crossing Highway 6 on Leslie Rd at Puslinch. It can be busy. Also the A/B’s will be crossing Highway 7 at Woolwich-Guelph Townline, which turns, into a (smooth) gravel road for a couple kms. The official ride ends at The Wooly, but it’s not the Club Social Night—that’s next week. That said, there’s nothing stopping you from patronizing one of our sponsors. Toast to the Summer Solstice deity of your choice.

Thursday April 18th ABC Rides | 6:00pm

RIDE CANCELLED: According to Environment Canada, the likelihood of rain after 6:00 is high. Also there is a risk of a thunderstorm. Feel free to meet at the East Library at 6:00 and enjoy a non-club ride with the possibility of getting wet.

UPDATE: Showers and risk of thunderstorms are in the forecast. Go-No Go call will be made by 5:00 at the latest.

This ride takes us out near Acton and back through Rockwood and Eden Mills. The A Group will duke it out on the 8km finishing circuit. (The end point on the map shows a beer mug at the Wooly, but that’s not until next week when we gather for a Club Social!). Bring lights.

Thursday A/B – July 26th, 6:30pm + Club Social at The Wooly, 9:00ish

EDIT#2…It’s a close call, but a severe thunderstorm warning exists so the SRCC RIDE IS CANCELLED. See you at the Wooly!! A band thunderstorms is coming through. I will make the call by 5:00pm. If the ride is cancelled, the Club Social will still be on–and will start earlier, like 7:30. It’s the end of the month, clubbies! That mean’s Thursday’s ride is all about the beer. Let’s do a quickie out to Dublin Line to give you time to shower up and head out to The Wooly for the Club Social (kizzle! will be proud). The A Group will be up to their usual shenanigans so that there will be stories to tell at the pub. The B Group will work together in a steady, double pace line with short pulls to maintain decent speed and eliminate surges. All club members welcome at the social.
