RIDE CANCELLED -3 temperatures, nasty winds and some precip later in the afternoon means the official ride is cancelled. If any hard core want to ride an unofficial ride, please dress warm and ride safe! As much as a trip out to the Forks would provide some awesome scenery, the crowded roads and wintery weather make that unreasonable. So lets stick closer to home on some familiar roads and some great scenery to boot! We’ll stop at the Flying Monkey at the half way point. To shorten the route, simply continue on 25 heading back towards Arkel. If the feels-like temps are below zero and winds look excessive the ride will be cancelled, call made by 10am.
Quick note that next week‘s ride, and those following, start at 11am. It’s going to be a cool morning, maybe 8 degrees, getting up to 14. We’ll warm up at km 54 at the Flying Monkey and then head back. It’s a combined ride, so the pace won’t be anything crazy. Should be a nice day!
Something different for our first Sunday Mixed ride. A little toodle to Andrew’s Scenic Acres for butter tarts or other baked good of your choice. The wind should be at our back coming home. Come prepared for some good chat and some giggles…emphasis will be on social and fun. Expected pace, for this mixed ride, between 29 to 31 km/h. This ride is officially 90 km from start at library to finish at Arkell.
