Radar is showing a bit of rain toward the start of the ride, but clearing shortly after. Might be a little damp at the start, but it’ll be gorgeous after. RIDE IS ON!

We’ll be meeting separately from the ‘Moderate’ riders. Our meeting place will be the South end of the parking lot near the building (see image below).

Tuesday Aug 4th 6:30 PM Group Road Rides

RIDE CANCELLED Environment Canada has issued a Tornado Warning, that can make for quite a head wind on a ride, not to mention other problems. It doesn’t rain all summer…

Original Post

After last Tuesday’s great success we are looking to add a bit more distance for all and a little more top end for our A group. It truly was great to see so many familiar faces last week and a few new ones as well – a special welcome to our new club members and many thanks to those that helped them during the evening!

Again, we will be departing in three waves. Each wave will meet separately from the other waves. Please see the map below for your meeting spot.  The evening is strictly social pace-line format without surging, racing or breaking apart. Be sure to see all our relevant web pages on Responsibilities, Group Ride Guidelines, Safety, Pace-line and New Member information.

To join a ride, you need to fill in the appropriate sign-up form.  Click on the following links: 

A Group – Advanced: 31-33 kph  –  62 km

B Group – Moderate  28-30 kph   –  56 km

C Group – Leisurely  25-27 kph   –  53 km

Start location: Arkell, the intersection of Watson and Arkell Roads 

Start time: 6:30 PM, please be ready to pedal then. 

Please follow all the instructions in the link to join the ride. We are capped at 12 riders per group – the forms will disappear once each group is filled.

If you have any questions, please contact our Membership Experience Director, Meg

Below is the gathering locations for the three speed groups in Arkell. Give yourself enough time to be there and ready to pedal at 6:30 pm. See you soon!

See maps below for the different group routes.

Sunday August 2nd 8am medium road ride 95 km

Aw Boo. Cancelling this ride too due to the rain. Alright – here it is finally. A simple meander going north and south of the city. Nothing too innovative but these are mostly nice quiet roads. If anybody needs a food stop we can visit the gas station at 15th and Guelph line (i’d avoid the sushi though…)

Anybody planning on doing this ride needs to fill out the forms here . We’re meeting at the east end library at 8 AM. We’re going to aim for a pace of around 30 to 32 km/hr and make sure that it stays civilized throughout the ride.

Lastly, any weather related cancellation will be posted here the morning of the ride
