Last Wednesday Ride of the Season: 6:00

Update: looking out side is very confusing. There are enough nasty looking clouds that I think that it is safer to cancel the official ride. I will look again at 5:30 and, if it clears up then I may ride unofficially.

For the last fun ride of the season, I have chosen a short route over some familiar roads with lots of greenery. Sunset is coming early, so please bring a light.

Again this week, the weather forecast is pretty stupid: i.e. 40% probability that it will rain less than 1mm. Last week’s ride was great. I will make the go/no-go decision for this ride before 4:30.


Tuesday A Ride | Sept. 5, 6:00 pm

An unusual one for the season finale, this route takes us along River Road through downtown Hespeler where there are a couple of traffic lights and a large roundabout to navigate. After that it’s smooth sailing until we hit a short gravel section across highway 7. We’re soon on familiar roads all the way home. The ride ends officially before Woodlawn Road. Bring both front and rear lights because we may be pushing daylight on this one. It’s been a great season, thanks for coming out!


Sunday Long l September 3rd 9:00am

Ride Cancelled: Storm cells are tracking to pour all over the ride. We will take in a lot of scenic roads as we head through Dundas and Ancaster. We will stop in for a bite to eat in Waterdown after tackling Sydenham Hill. The weather looks like it should be perfect for a long day in the saddle.


Thursday A/B – August 31st – 6:00pm + CLUB SOCIAL AT THE WOOLY

2 Bergs and a Col.  Pay attention to this loopy route.  For the B ride everyone will regroup after the first descent of the Berg on Watson, and after the descent of the Col by Leslie.  After the second time up and over the Berg, it is everyone for themselves to the finish.  The A ride can hammer away with a little more aggression.  Everyone should bring lights as the sun is setting a little earlier.

Since it’s the last Thursday of the month, we’re heading to the Wooly after the ride. The patio may or may not be open, but it will be down to about 11 degrees by then.
