Sunday looks to be coolish, but with a bit of sun to warm the skin. With winds forecasted out of the west, we'll head to the rolling, country roads of the Waterloo Region. There will be a snack and refuel stop in Elmira, with options for donuts, espresso and pastries, before we ride the Fall westerlies home. Take note of the 11:00 am start.
Please note the new 11am start time for the remaining Sunday rides.
Update: A slight change to the route to swap in some nicer roads. We’ll take Sideroad 25 south to Gore Rd and then Valens Rd all the way to Concession 5W. Map has been updated.
Southerly loop down Valens Rd, through Millgrove and along Cedar Springs, with a refueling stop at the Kilbride convenience store. We’ll head back via McNiven and 2nd Line. Should be a nice day to check out some early fall colours. And don’t forget… 11am start time.
The Long ride will be heading back to Forks of the credit but with some route changes to take in as many hills as possible with some new paved sections added. There will be a short amount of gravel on this route but as long as GC doesn’t attack it should be fine.
I have also added a note on the route regarding a fun downhill to uphill section on a side road I thought would make a great club hill climb that we can try if people are feeling frisky.
UPDATE: A few club members have expressed interest in a shorter route (hey Jeremy, hey Ann) so they’ll be doing the Mary-Fergus-Elora loop. This is an unofficial club ride (no ride leader) but should be just as fun.
