Happy Thanksgiving weekend. The weather looks nice for this weekend we will be heading up to Belfountain. There is an extra loop for people that want a few extra kms while everyone else has a coffee break in Belfountain. As a treat on the way back we have some fresh tarmac on County road 50 to try out.
You may have noticed the surge in riders participating in our regular rides this year. With so many riders now coming out for each ride, the group can easily spill out into the path of library patrons trying to enter and exit the building if we’re not paying attention.
So please group up to the right of the entrance, on the sidewalk where there are usually vacant parking spaces as well. Anywhere that’s not blatantly in the way once 50 riders show up, will do.
Thanks for your cooperation in reducing the impact we have on our meeting spot hosts.
