Sunday August 2nd 8:00 AM Gravel Ride – Leisurely 82K

RIDE CANCELLED Dirt roads and trail sections will be a slippery mess this morning and the Radar says there’s a bit more rain still to come. We’ll try again next week.


Being as it’s the long week-end, we’ll make the leisurely gravel ride a bit longer this week. 

Start time: 8 AM 

Start location: Guelph Youth Music Centre (not the library). Plenty of parking for those arriving by car. 

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). 

We’re going to head up the Kissing Bridge trail, over the ‘Flat Side of the Bridge’, check out Sandy Hills, then wind our way over to Elora for a nice coffee break at about the 50 km mark.  We’ll aim for a 22-24 kph average, depending on the makeup of 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.

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


Sunday 09/29 C Ride – 9am

A variation on the classic Fergus-Elora loop – let’s go clockwise! We’ll head to Maryhill first, then to Elora, where we can stop for a coffee if we wish, then off to Fergus and back home. A short gravel section on Jones Baseline, but it’s a beautiful, quiet road that shouldn’t be missed!

Official ride end point will be the trailhead for the Royal Recreational Trail/GORBA trails on Victoria Rd N.


Sunday July 14th 8 AM C Ride

Gorgeous conditions predicted for a classic CW loop that takes us down Watsonburg, past Crief and into Hespeler for a halfway stop at Creme Cafe (bring some cash for that). Then we continue up Chilligo to Maryhill, Ariss and back home all in time for lunch. EC says we’ll have a cool start of 15 degrees with no humidity and almost no wind and finishing under complete sun and 21 degrees. We’ll be riding at a leisurely 26 to 28 kph average. Apply your sunscreen under your arm warmers (weird!).
