Wednesday Social Ride – 6pm (CANCELLED)

CANCELLED…with the snow and ice on the roads, and on the sides, it is probably best to err on the side of caution. I will be Zwifting at 5:30, doing the USMES club ride 2.0 if anyone wants to meet me there. Hopefully, we will have better weather soon.

Since this is my first ride lead, I am going to take the optimistic approach about Wednesday’s ride. The weather is sunny at 8 degrees. I am ignoring that the roads are full of snow and ice…will post this now and cancel if need be tomorrow…

Looking forward to an easy cruise on this spring evening. Please make sure you have joined the club, memberships will be checked online. We should be back before it is dark but just in case, please come prepared with lights. The plan is to stay together at a chilled pace.

Last Wednesday Ride of the Season: 6:00

Update: looking out side is very confusing. There are enough nasty looking clouds that I think that it is safer to cancel the official ride. I will look again at 5:30 and, if it clears up then I may ride unofficially.

For the last fun ride of the season, I have chosen a short route over some familiar roads with lots of greenery. Sunset is coming early, so please bring a light.

Again this week, the weather forecast is pretty stupid: i.e. 40% probability that it will rain less than 1mm. Last week’s ride was great. I will make the go/no-go decision for this ride before 4:30.

Social Ride for Aug. 30 at 6:00

Update: sunny weather, great temperatures, weather reports are stupid (“40% chance of <1mm at 7:00"): let's go. I think that a short trip down Watson and back up Victoria, with some interesting hills, might be fun as sunset creeps earlier. Please bring lights, just in case. (Confusingly, the weather forecast is calling for a probability of misty rain in the late afternoon. I will see how it develops and make a go/no-go decision before 4:30.)

Wednesday Relaxed Ride | August 23rd 6:00 PM

This ride is 45 kms of familiar stomping grounds – an array of gentle rollers with a final kick in the pants before the home stretch. We’ll start with a quick tour through downtown Eden Mills, then snake through, and keep off of, all the fresh gravel. The plan is to be home before dark. Bring lights just in case. BTW – this is my last ‘ride lead’ of the season and my last club ride until October. It’s been great riding with you and a great (albeit quick) season! Hope to see you soon.

PS Question: How many bike mechanics does it take to change a light bulb? Answer: (ask me on the ride)
