Sunday 09/13 9am – Gravel

UPDATE: Ride cancelled. The radar isn’t looking very friendly this morning. Lots of rain incoming.

Sunday gravel rides continue!

This route is similar to the well-loved route from the start of August. Except we’ll ride it in a clockwise direction this time!
We’ll be riding much of the Walter Bean Trail through KW and head back into town along the Kissing Bridge Trailway.

If the group splits, we will regroup so that no one gets left behind. It’s highly recommended you load the route into your bike computer, if you can!

Start time: 9:00am

Start location: Guelph Youth Music Centre

Register HERE. Note: ALL steps in the form must be completed.

The ride is capped at 15 participants. Once the sign-up cap is reached, registration will automatically close.

There will be a refreshments stop just off Lancaster Street at the cafe in Bridgeport at approximately the 51km mark. Bring cash/card and a mask.

Sunday’s weather is looking hit or miss currently. Final call regarding a potential cancellation due to weather will be made no later than 8am on Sunday morning.

Sunday September 6th, 8am Road Ride – 101k

This Sunday looks absolutely perfect for a long ride: little (forecasted) wind, sunny, nice and warm given that it’s September already!? When did that happen?

Let’s hope that the forecast comes true, and head out on some classic roads: the ride north of the Grand –featuring some fresh pavement on Middlebrook– is full of roads that SRCC riders have come to love. We’ll head north, then southeast along the river, and end with the West Montrose bridge and a nice, flat finish down Crowsfoot to bring it home. Perfect. See you there!

Start time: 8 AM 

Start location: The Guelph East End Public Library. Plenty of parking for those arriving by car. 

Check back here for weather cancellation announcement, it will be posted no less than one hour before the ride.

To join the ride, you will need to complete and submit the sign-up form, found HERE. All steps listed in the form MUST be completed.
