Wednesday Social Ride Aug. 8, 6:30pm

The days are getting shorter but the riding legs are getting stronger. A ride with a few ups and downs which will test our skills to keep up a 28kph average. As usual, we will focus on smooth transitions and tight groupings. The weather forecast calls for a possibility of rain so a final call will be made at 5:00pm.

Tuesday B Ride – August 7th 2018 – 6:30pm Start

This one will get us back in under 2 hours; ~ 60km. Lots of time to get home before dark. Note the change from Nassagaweya-Esquesing Town Line to 6th line from the last time we ran this route. If we are a large group, I will split us into a 1st group that will allow riders to be dropped and a 2nd group that will be no-drop. The focus will be on group speed which will be a function of short pulls and quick rotations. We will limit pulls to 15 seconds per side, for a total of a maximum 30 second pull. This will bring up the average speed without burning off riders.

Original Post:
Here’s a nice rolling route to the south and west of Guelph with some new pavement in a few places. Quite a few turns to remember so load this one into that thing that’s been cluttering up your bars for years – Garmin… not just for numbers anymore! You’ll figure it out, children do it everyday. The official finish will be at Hamilton Corners at the Volvo Garage at Gordon and Arkell Rds. A few will want to head back to the library on Arkell and Victoria Rds. and others can find there way home from Gordon St. Sunset 8:43, bring lights just in case. Check back here for final rain cancellation to be posted no later than 5:00 PM.
