Sunday August 1st Road Ride 8:00 AM

Ride cancelled due to weather and low numbers. See y’all next week! This ride is going to take us north to Grand Valley and surrounding countryside. Weather forecast looks middling at best so the final call will be at 7:00 AM on Sunday. As usual, there is the signup routine and remember that we meet at the Guelph Public Library in the east end of the city.

Sunday Gravel Ride | Aug 1st, 8:00 am

RIDE CANCELLED due to wet forecast, or perhaps we should just say ‘postponed’. This ride will run on Monday August 2nd starting at the same time and location.

Long weekends leave towns quieter than usual, which is an excellent time to take advantage of what’s in our own backyard. This route uses the best south Guelph has to offer, plus a lot of gravel and two-track further down. We will stop halfway at the The Danish Place, (which is open again – yay! … just not when we get there – boo!). Bring your own snacks – and a mask just in case.

The forecast is iffy at this point. Check back here for a weather cancellation posted no later than 7:00 am.

If this ride is cancelled on Sunday, it will run on Monday starting at the same time and location.

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

Advance sign-up required. Click here: Sunday Gravel Rides.

Start location: The Guelph Youth Music Centre – GYMC

Start time: Please be ready to pedal at 8:00 AM

Thursday Advanced Rides | July 29 @ 6:30pm

UPDATE: Radar looks clear, might be a little windy, but nothing we can’t handle. Ride is on. As seems to be a theme whenever I lead a ride, weather does not look great. Final call will be made by 5:30 pm.

For tomorrow we will go back to simpler times when tires were 23’s at 110psi, discs were for MTB and 10 speeds were more than enough. These roads were club staples but seem to have fallen out of favour. As always the A group has some extra fun tacked on, in another rarely used road.

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

Advance sign-up for these rides is required. Click HERE to reserve your spot.

This ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE.

Rides start in the parking lot of the East End Library at the corner of Starwood and Watson. See the map below for the meeting point for your group.

Sunday, July 25th Road Ride: 8am Start

Stealing James’ route from a couple of weeks ago, that got rained out:

Sunday is looking like the perfect day to get on your road bike! If you’re new to riding east of town, this ~110k route is for you. We’ll start through Limehouse, descend Olde Base Line next to the Cheltenham Badlands, go up the legendary Forks of the Credit climb, and poke our heads into Erin from a donut (or fritter) from the legendary Holtom’s bakery. My favourite!

The ride starts at 8am from the Library’s East Branch at Watson and Starwood. Bring enough food of your own to make it ~75km at a pace averaging around 30km/h until we get our bakery stop.

Sign up for Sunday’s road ride here: https://signup.com/go/nAudrjE

This ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE.
