Sunday Road Ride | October 31st @ 11:00 am

The ride is offically canceled. It seems that between the weather and my general popularity that I am the only person to have signed up for the ride. Not the way we would have wanted the last official club ride of the year to go but thats life. Thank you all for such a great season in spite of all the goings on in the world.

Let’s see if I will be 0 for 3 on leading Sunday rides. It has been a very wet year.

Start time to 11:00 am. It will be getting increasingly windy as the day progresses. We will earn our pay.

Nice scenic route through Acton, Glen Williams, and Limehouse. Lots of places to stop and refresh along the route. This is 110km form the start back to the church at Arkell and Watson. This route will take us through some nice fall scenery. We can adjust the length of the route to suite the conditions and or the wants of the group.

Sunday Gravel Ride | October 31st, 11:00 am

RIDE CANCELLED. We’ll try again next week and hope for better conditions.

It’s going to be a cold, wet, mucky and windy all Hallows Eve, Hallowe’en or Halloween (your spelling preference) fall colour ride. Weather is predicted to be chilly, windy and wet – around 8 degrees at the start. Brrr…. costumes are mandatory (ok, maybe not)!

Check back here for weather cancellation posted no later than 8:00 AM.

Lot’s of long gravel roads in this one. Unfortunately there is no cafe or convenience store near halfway on this route. Bring food, enough drink and dress warmly – and no whining! Lol!!

The plan is to have two pace groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. However, these groups may be combined depending on turnout. Check the schedule for complete details.

Recreational Gravel: 21-24 km/h average
Intermediate Gravel: 24-26 km/h average

Sunday Road Ride | October 24th @ 11:00 am

Looks likely to be a pretty chilly one with the potential for some wind so make sure to dress appropriately. Some tried and true roads with a few new ones that aim to please. No café stop on this route, but a couple of opportunities to fill bottles or grab a cheeky Mars bar…

The ride starts at 11am and we will ride as one group with a 29-31 kph target, adapted to the inclinations of the participants.

Advance sign-up for these rides is required. Click HERE to reserve your spot. Please make sure you sign up by Sunday morning at 9am at the latest so I know who to expect.

This ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE. Sure, it’s really late in the season, but better late than never!

Ride starts in the parking lot of the East End Library at the corner of Starwood and Watson.

Sunday October 17th Road Ride 11 AM at the Library.

Gonna try this route again but the weather isn’t looking too promising. Final decision will be made at 10 AM on Sunday. This will be a fairly leisurely roll through the countryside North of Belwood up to Grand Valley. No Huge hills but it could be windy. We can make a food / water / break stop at Grand Valley or wait for the butter tarts in Belwood.

As usual, sign up for the ride here

KWCX Sunday October 24th

Lady’s and Gentlemen,

We have decided not to run a gravel ride on Sunday October 24th and instead encourage our SRCC gravel enthusiasts to join in the Cyclocross fun in Kitchener with our good friends and hosts Waterloo Cycling Club at the KWCX held at Bingeman Park.

All you need is a OCA citizen’s permit (most of you will have that when signing up with SRCC) and…

Any bicycle can be used in any race with the exception of the M1/E1/E2 race where a UCI legal CX bicycle is required. The Single speed race requires a single speed bike. Full details in Event Rules.

This is an Ontario Cup, please remember to bring your series numbers (if you have been issued them). If you haven’t already received your numbers this year they will be provided to you at the race. If you lose your numbers you will have to pay a fee of $20 to obtain new series numbers.

Register here.

Entry is $50

There is no day of registration this year as per COVID regulations.

More info here.

Hope to see you there!
