6pm Wednesday Social Ride PLUS Non-Members Try a Ride

A nice, easy paced mid-week ride is on the table for Wednesday afternoon. Let’s hope for good weather and smooth roads for our ride. In saying that, there is some chip seal on Side Road 25 just before Guelph line but at this point, it should be pretty good and nothing to be concerned about.

Pace will be around 28 or 29 km/hour in a nice social paceline where we can spin our legs and take it easy.

Gabhan will also be with us hosting a Try-a-ride for non-members, or people who are interested in checking out the club. So, if you know someone who is contemplating joining SRCC, this is the ride for them!

This is a shorter distance, but please remember your lights and wear brighter colours.


Social Ride: Wed. at 6:00

Let’s go. (Forecast seems to predict a dry rain near the end of the ride.)

As one of the last rides of the season, I propose a metaphor for the season. The start of the ride will be a bit rough (i.e. south on Watson). There will be some uphills and some downhills, before a smooth return home (i.e. north on Victoria). Bring lights, since it is getting dark earlier.

The weather forecast looks a bit iffy. I will make a go/no-go decision before 4:30. Hopefully, it will be a go.


Aug. 15 Social Ride

For a ride which promises to be hot, I think that we should head for somewhere with lots of greenery. Please being lots of your favorite cold liquid and lights, just in case. (Note: this is the last Wednesday Ride of this year with the 6:30 start time. Next week, rides start at 6:00.)


Social Ride – Wednesday Aug 1, 6:30 pm

Weather Update 4:55 PM: Ride is CANCELLED! Weather sites can’t seem to predict ‘pop up’ rain cells and we’ve just had one roll through with more on the way. Specifically to the south where we planned to go.
Original Post
We’ve had a few new members sign up this mid-season and this should be a great ride to welcome them along. It’s a nice light rolling route to the south and west of Guelph with some new pavement in a few places. We’ll continue working on great communication up and down the double pace line with a steady level of effort – moderate on the flats, slow up the hills and fast coming down. New members (and old) should check out the Safety and Skills page and General Ride Info and select ‘Wednesday’ from the side bar. The official finish will be at Hamilton corners at the Garage at Gordon and Arkell rd. Check back here for final rain cancellation to be posted no later than 5:00 PM. See you soon.
