8:00 AM Weather Call: Ride is on!
There is definitely some rain coming today, it’s just a bit difficult to say exactly when. EC says 40% chance with the Likelihood of Precipitation being ‘Low’.
Medium pace (28-30 kph)
The Mid distance 78 km group stops in Georgetown for coffee and a snack at the Silvercreek Cafe. You’ll be home in time for lunch on this ride.
The Longer distance 116 km group sets out with the medium group and then carries on through Glen Williams, Terra Cotta, Inglewood, Belfountain and Erin before getting back to Guelph. Great cafe stop opportunities on this ride!
Don’t forget to bring a bit of cash!
The weather is looking a bit ‘so, so’ as of Friday’s posting. Weather updates will be made right up to Sunday at 8 AM for the final call. Hope you can join us.
So, Scott and I have been working together to design a slower paced, social route that will include a medium distance and longer distance for those who want to ride at the 28 to 30 km/h pace. We have created a 120 km route with a stop in St George (which I keep hearing about and need to explore) for coffee and fritters. A shorter, more traditional “medium” route of 85 km has also been created for those who would prefer the traditional SRCC “Medium”… and Scott will turn off early at Safari Road for that one.
If you are looking for long at a FAST pace then Gabhan’s ride will be for you. Our ride will be slower.
Nice route heading south toward Morriston than looping around and heading toward Campbellville with a stop at Flying Monkey if so desired, then heading back the way we came. We head home on first line all the way to Arkell Rd. The forecast looks decent with rain coming in the afternoon.
This 76 km Fergus-Elora coffee run should get us home by lunch and before any threat of rain. We’ll be crossing the covered bridge at West Montrose (someone please open a cafe here!). A cool Saturday evening should make for a perfect start as the day warm towards noon. Bring a little money for the cafe in Elora. See you soon.
