Thursday Advanced Rides | September 9th @ 6:00 pm

*** Post ride Gathering at Fixed Gear Brewing (20 Alma St) ***

It will be chilly for this ride. Bring your warm kit and blinky lights! Sunset is 7:45. I have shamelessly borrowed Mathew’s route from last week and I shortened the A & B/C rides. If time is really an issue we can cut the B/C ride further at Moffat. I have shortened the A ride less and that group can ride really fast to get home on time or shorten in the bottom of the route as they see fit. Anyone shed from the A group can shortcut to get back on with the B/C if they are dropped in the extended part of the route.

Thursday Advanced Rides | September 2nd @ 6:00 pm

While the calendar page might have turned and arm warmers become more and more of a thing we still have enough daylight to squeeze in some weekday fun! At least for now… Boo. This southerly route carries on the now-familiar “avoid the chipseal” theme and as a special gift to those riding tonight we go down rather than up 1st line into Eden Mills. It is a little more distance than the last few Thursdays but should get us home well before the sets.

RIDE CANCELLED Thursday advanced ride: August 26, 6:00 pm

A severe thunderstorm watch for tonight means that the official club ride cannot run. However, the radar currently looks clear, so anyone who wants to ride unofficially (no ride leaders or strict pace groups) can meet at the library for 6:00 pm.

This route gives us a little taste of both north and south roads while minimizing chip seal. I’m sure the A group has been missing climbing Watsonberg on Tuesday nights, so they’ll be reunited tonight.

There’s a section of construction on Main Street in Rockwood between Harris and Frederick Street, but it is short and we can get by on the sidewalk. Not enough to deter us from the surrounding smooth roads!

We have three pace groups on Thursdays:

Thursday A: 35+ km/h average
Thursday B: 32-35 km/h average
Thursday C: 30-32 km/h average

This ride is open to SRCC members only. If you have not signed up to be a club member, you can do so HERE.

As with all club rides, club members must also sign up in advance, which can be done here

Be ready to pedal at 6:00 PM from the East End Library at the corner of Starwood and Watson. We are starting earlier with the shorter days! Bike lights are always a good idea regardless.

Thursday Advanced Rides | August 12th @ 6:30 pm

This route quickly became one of my favourites after having ridden it for the first time a couple of years ago. It has a little something for everyone: a power climb and a punchy climb sandwiching a nice smooth flat section along 7th line. We then head up the Sammon Run in Rockwood before finishing up through Eden Mills and Arkell. The A group gets a *little* bit of extra distance but avoid the now chip-sealed climb on 4th line. It should be a fun one for all concerned.

I’m going to keep an eye on the weather throughout the day but if the ride goes ahead, which I hope it does, it is going to be a hot one! Remember to fill your bottles and stay hydrated.

Thursday Advanced Rides | July 29 @ 6:30pm

UPDATE: Radar looks clear, might be a little windy, but nothing we can’t handle. Ride is on. As seems to be a theme whenever I lead a ride, weather does not look great. Final call will be made by 5:30 pm.

For tomorrow we will go back to simpler times when tires were 23’s at 110psi, discs were for MTB and 10 speeds were more than enough. These roads were club staples but seem to have fallen out of favour. As always the A group has some extra fun tacked on, in another rarely used road.

Groups will ride at the following paces:

Thursday A: 35+ km/h average
Thursday B: 32-35 km/h average
Thursday C: 30-32 km/h average

CANCELLED Thursday Advanced Rides | July 15th @ 6:30 pm

UPDATE #2: Severe thunderstorm watches from Environment Canada and official club rides do not mix well. It’s possible that things will stay clear and you might be able to muscle your way through the 50kph winds this evening on a solo ride, but there will be no grand depart from the East End Library today.

Having spent the past week poring over ancient texts trying to figure out how to appease the Sumerian weather god Hadad, I think that we have an excellent shot at a good night for riding [turns out I was wrong about this…]. The B & C groups will do a nice loop out on SR 15, down Dublin line and back through Eden Mills with a final push up Arkell. The A group will loop back for a little extra distance and a second serving of the Eden Mills climb!

Groups will ride at the following paces:

Thursday A: 35+ km/h average
Thursday B: 32-35 km/h average
Thursday C: 30-32 km/h average
