This will be the second try at this ride, attempt last week was cancelled due to rain. We will be heading south into Dundas and stopping at Detour Café for a bite and a drink. Then up Sydenham and north we go. Put on your sun screen!
Looks like with weather should be good for a sunny mother’s day ride. We start by heading out north past Guelph lake then heading east until heading up 6th line. Then continue north making a loop around Fergus and head into Elora for a coffee break at Ashanti Coffee. Post break we head west down Middlebrook and back along Guelph Townline and return past Guelph lake. A high on 13 degrees is the current forecast so dress accordingly.
Well the good news is the forecast has improved! It looks like the snow will hold off, perhaps until a much more appropriate time, say six months from now.. We shall celebrate with a ride to the Forks of The Credit for some warm coffee and beautiful riding. Remember to layer up, bring some nourishment, check your lighting and carry your SRCC membership card!
Update Ride cancelled, Rain is coming through, even if it stops when the ride starts at 9:00 the roads will be wet and the temperature is only going to be 2 degrees with 50 km/h gusts, Stalwart people can still show up but it will not be an official club ride.
a Please note the start time is now at 9:00 am and this will be the last combined ride until October. Next weekend we will offer a separate short and long ride each with its own ride leader.
The weather forecast isn’t looking great for Sunday with rain and a high of 5 degrees so please check back by 8:00 am Sunday to see if the ride is still on.
Scheduled stop will be in Kilbride for drinks.
Good luck to all our riders doing the Paris to Ancaster ride, hope the forecast improves!
OK, This will be of Long/Medium combination ride of sorts. Those riders that want to add a few extra miles and some intensity can loop up to Bellwood Lake and then back down and rejoin the route. Perhaps if they are good enough; catch up with the main group. The distance to our de facto end point in Arkell is 80km. We will be focusing on riding as a cohesive group and polishing some of our rusty group riding skills.
