Sunday August 9th 8:00 AM Gravel Ride – Leisurely 82K

Radar is showing a bit of rain toward the start of the ride, but clearing shortly after. Might be a little damp at the start, but it’ll be gorgeous after. RIDE IS ON!

Lets’ try this again. This is last weeks cancelled gravel ride redux. It’s looking good for this Sunday and we’re excited about this route.

Start time: 8 AM 

Start location: Guelph Youth Music Centre (not the library). Plenty of parking for those arriving by car. 

We’ll be meeting separately from the ‘Moderate’ riders. Our meeting place will be the South end of the parking lot near the building (see image below). 

We’re going to head up the Kissing Bridge trail, over the ‘Flat Side of the Bridge’, check out Sandy Hills, then wind our way over to Elora for a nice coffee break at about the 50 km mark.  We’ll aim for a 22-24 kph average, depending on the makeup of the ride. 

To join the ride, you will need to complete and submit the sign-up form, found HERE. All steps listed in the form MUST be completed.
