Sunday Road Ride | October 31st @ 11:00 am

The ride is offically canceled. It seems that between the weather and my general popularity that I am the only person to have signed up for the ride. Not the way we would have wanted the last official club ride of the year to go but thats life. Thank you all for such a great season in spite of all the goings on in the world.

Let’s see if I will be 0 for 3 on leading Sunday rides. It has been a very wet year.

Start time to 11:00 am. It will be getting increasingly windy as the day progresses. We will earn our pay.

Nice scenic route through Acton, Glen Williams, and Limehouse. Lots of places to stop and refresh along the route. This is 110km form the start back to the church at Arkell and Watson. This route will take us through some nice fall scenery. We can adjust the length of the route to suite the conditions and or the wants of the group.

Advance sign-up for these rides is required. Click HERE to reserve your spot.

No Sunday Road Ride This Week

The official Sunday road ride is taking this week off as it begins its taper towards next week’s Big 100 (Sign up here. It is going to be epic…).

For those of you who would still like to head out on what promises to be a nice day for riding, here’s a suggested route that includes a couple of nice climbs and potential for a rest stop in Glen Williams if desired.

Sunday 08/22 Road, 8:00am

As long as the rain holds off, it should be a great (but hot) day for riding bikes! We’ll go on an adventure to explore the Escarpment south of us, before returning up some familiar roads. Bring lots of water, as it’s going to be hot!

We have two options for stops: firstly at the very classy gas station/Tim Hortons on Tremaine Road at around the 50km mark, and secondly in Kilbride around the 70km mark (popsicle stop highly recommended at this point!).

Please sign-up for this ride HERE

This ride is open to SRCC club members only. If you aren’t already a member, you can sign up for the club at speedrivercyclingclub.org/join

The ride departs from the East Branch Public Library at Starwood and Watson at 8am. See the route below, and load it to your GPS!
