Thursday A/B/C June 6-6:30 pm

Been wanting to do this loop for years, and now that we are almost at the longest day I figure why not? Just wish I was doing the A ride so I could get dropped on those hills!

WARNING! This route will have some gravel sections, not the type to ruin road bikes but it exists nonetheless. The roads were fine last time I rode them a few years ago… Always take it slow but steady on gravel.

Other route notes, human workers were repaving out at 6th line and 20th last week so be mindful of the bump at that intersection. After that it’s gravel to 26. Stay single file on Wellington road 26 as it can be busy.

4th line is also gravel and includes a climb and descent, take it easy on these sections. I will remind people as we approach.

The A ride will continue onto the long climbs on 17th to sort out the climbers from the puncheurs. They will also hit a gravel road just this side of Erin, no attacks on that gravel climb! Actually why not, I wont be there.


Thursday A/B/C May 16th 630 pm

Update: as 5:15pm the radar is clear, even though some clouds are rolling in. Ride is on!! Time to finally put away the leg warmers and air out the legs in the spring air. We still don’t have a ton of daylight hours yet so we will not push the distance too much. The route is fairly straightforward and offers a little bit of everything for everyone. The B and C groups will look to work together and keep a brisk but steady pace. Since the legs are starting to wake up for the summer the C group will look to average a minimum of 30km/h. The A group will do their thing and have an extra few km put on their route.


Thursday A/B/C Rides | May 9 @ 6:30pm

RIDE CANCELLED. More storm cells coming our way. This week we’ll head through Eden Mills, then down Fourth Line. At First Line, the B and C groups turn right, head over to Watson and back; the A group turns left, down to Campbellville Rd., over the col and up Watson. Easy as 1 2 3. Weather looks dicey, and the call will be made by 5:30.


Thursday A/B/C Rides | May 2 @ 6:30pm

Note the changed start time to 6:30pm this week. This week the route will head east through Eden Mills and across SR25 to Dublin Line. The B/C groups will head back from Dublin Line while the A route will continue east for a loop around the Acton quarries then we all return across SR22/20/25 back to Arkell. I couldn’t figure out the start/end waypoints but the official end will be the church in Arkell as usual 🙂


Thursday ABC Rides April 25th 6pm

Update: there might be a small band of rain that rolls through around 530, but should clear out. Ride is still on!! Alright folks it looks like this will be the first Thursday of the year to happen. I’ve got two routes posted for everyone to peruse, we will head down Victoria, take in a little used detour swing around Mountsberg and come back via Watson. The folks looking to Hammer will do a little circle and take in the ever popular Col de Watson before rejoining the rest of us. Since this is the first of the year please read the ride descriptions on the website and note the pace guidlines. We will not deviate from these so if you feel like the C will not be quick enough for you give the B a try and if you can’t hold the pace the C group will be happy to pick you up along the way!

Even more importantly we are scheduled to have a few social beverages at the Wooly after the ride. All are welcome not just Thursday riders.
