Sunday Gravel Ride | July 25th, 8:00 am

RIDE CANCELLED   Slick mucky trails and a few other compounding factors have led to the cancellation of this ride. We’ll try this route another time. The road ride is still on.

This is a slightly longish one but has a perfectly placed snack stop halfway in Elmira. If you’ve never been around the Floradale reservoir or through Wilson Flats (backwards – this time) you’re in for a treat. We also cut through Edna and Daniel Martin’s Mennonite Maple Syrup farm. Sorry, no Sunday sales. Too bad, a little syrup in your water = yum + zip!

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

Check back for weather cancellation posted no later than 7:00 AM.

Advance sign-up required. Click here: Sunday Gravel Rides. You will have to create an account on Signup.com

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

Start location: The Guelph Youth Music Centre – GYMC

Thursday Advanced Rides | July 22 @ 6:30pm

I spent hours perusing maps, test driving segments and consulting with pro racers to come up with this never-before-seen, no-this-isn’t-a-blatant-rip-off-of-last-Thursday’s-cancelled gem of a ride. This is totally my creation. The B & C groups will do a nice loop out on SR 15, down Dublin line and back through Eden Mills with a final push up Arkell. The A group will loop back for a little extra distance and a second serving of the Eden Mills climb! If you think these routes are somehow familiar, I really don’t know where you are getting that idea. Stop bugging me about it, Matthew.

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 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

Weather is, like all rides it seems lately, iffy. Hopefully the forecast improves! Check back for weather cancellation posted no later than 7:00 AM. Weather looks great today, now! No rain forecasted until 5pm!

Sunday Road Ride | July 18th @ 8:00am

The ride plan for this Sunday Road Ride is a 130km route out toward Orangeville. We’ll loop south through Alton, Cataract and Belfountain before heading back toward Guelph. The ride leaves from the east end library at 8am and will work in a rest stop along the way. The ride will officially end at the Boathouse area on Gordon. We’ll work on keeping the pace as advertised between 29-31km/h so could get back around 1:30pm?Remember a mask for the coffee stop, and don’t forget to sign-up here.
