CANCELLED Thursday Advanced Rides | July 15th @ 6:30 pm

UPDATE #2: Severe thunderstorm watches from Environment Canada and official club rides do not mix well. It’s possible that things will stay clear and you might be able to muscle your way through the 50kph winds this evening on a solo ride, but there will be no grand depart from the East End Library today.

Having spent the past week poring over ancient texts trying to figure out how to appease the Sumerian weather god Hadad, I think that we have an excellent shot at a good night for riding [turns out I was wrong about this…]. 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!

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.

CANCELLED Tuesday All-Members Ride: July 13th, 6:30pm

Well the weather is much better than expected, and the radar looks clear, but with a severe thunderstorm watch hanging over our heads I have no choice but to cancel the ride. Stay safe if you choose to still ride, and remember tomorrow is an option for a more relaxed pace, and Thursday is an option for a quicker ride.

I’m posting this out of desperation, as currently the forecast is bleak for tomorrow. Unless you like to ride in strong thunderstorms, in which case enjoy a non-club ride. Final go/no-go call will be made by 5:30 pm tomorrow.

If by some miracle we can ride, Tuesday is the night of the week that all members can find a speed group they enjoy riding with! The route will remain the same for several weeks in a row, giving an opportunity for riders to see how they progress in fitness week-over-week.

Please note: some groups may be combined based on sign-up numbers and available ride leaders.

This ride requires sign-up in advance. Please do so here: TAM RIDE JULY 13th SIGNUP Sign-up does require you to create an account on Signup.com.

This ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE.

The TAM ride will be departing from Calvary Baptist Church, 454 Arkell Rd, at 6:30pm. Please arrive a few minutes early and ensure you are in the group area that you signed up for – see the map below.

CANCELLED – Sunday, July 11th Road Ride: 8am Start

Did I jinx it by calling it the “perfect day” in my post? Maybe. It doesn’t look like it will rain all day, but there’s a good chance that it will when we would be on the ride. Sit tight, watch le Tour, and get out there later in the day if you can.

Sunday is looking like the perfect day to get on your road bike! If you’re new to riding east of town, this ~110k route is for you. We’ll start through Limehouse, descend Olde Base Line next to the Cheltenham Badlands, go up the legendary Forks of the Credit climb, and poke our heads into Erin from a donut (or fritter) from the legendary Holtom’s bakery. My favourite!

The ride starts at 8am from the Library’s East Branch at Watson and Starwood. Bring enough food of your own to make it ~75km at a pace averaging around 30km/h until we get our bakery stop.

Sign up for Sunday’s road ride here: https://signup.com/go/nAudrjE

This ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE.

Sunday Gravel Ride | July 11th, 8:00 am – Guelph Youth Music Center

<—- I think James did jinx it… Weather radar looks like rain this morning so ride is cancelled. This weekend’s intermediate ride will be a tour of the landscape north of Belwood lake. Quiet roads, lots of farms and tons of gravel – what more could one want? We’ll have a rest stop at the store in Belwood where we can chow down on butter tarts and find out the dates for the next fishing derby.

Unfortunately there will not be a beginners ride this weekend due to ride leader scheduling. However, they will be back next weekend!

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
