Sunday Gravel Ride – Oct. 17, 11:00am

Weather is looking cool, and possibly rainy for this weekend. The ride start will officially be at 11:00am, to account for some warmer weather and hopefully to miss any rain that comes overnight. Dress appropriately and the worst that will happen is that you’ll have a cool story about an awesome adventure.

There will be a halfway stop at the Play-A-Latte Cafe in Kitchener (around kilometer 45). Be sure to bring cash or card and mask for that.

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. However, these groups may be combined depending on turnout. Check the schedule for complete details.

Recreational Gravel: 21-24 km/h average
Intermediate Gravel: 24-26 km/h average

Check back for weather cancellation posted no later than 9:00 AM.

Advance sign-up required. Click here: Sunday Gravel Rides. You will have to create an account on Signup.com

NEW Start time: Please be ready to pedal at 11:00 AM

Start location: The Guelph Youth Music Centre – GYMC

The route: We’re going to go on an urban-ish adventure along some trails that we’ve hit before, and some brand new stuff! Should be a great time!

Sunday Gravel Ride | Aug 22nd, 8:00 am

This one is called Kissing Flormira Wilson for obvious reasons. It was rained out a month ago, but the forecast is looking favourable this time.

If you’ve never been around the Floradale reservoir you’re in for a treat. We also cut through Edna and Daniel Martin’s Mennonite Maple Syrup farm with permission. Sorry, no Sunday sales. Too bad, a little syrup in your water = yum & zip)!

We will be taking a snack stop at halfway in Elmira at the ‘Local Renaissance’ cafe or the Circle K convenience store across the road. Bring cash/card and a mask for both.

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. Check the schedule for complete details.

Recreational Gravel: 21-24 km/h average
Intermediate Gravel: 24-26 km/h average

Check back for weather cancellation posted no later than 7:00 AM.

Sunday Gravel Ride | August 15, 2021

And now for something completely different. Well, not really, just leaning toward more singletrack 🙂

We’re doing a loop of Smith tract as a warm up, so bring your skills! Otherwise it’s some new roads and trails out near Acton, and a loop back through Hilton Falls. Should be perfect weather!

Bakery stop in Acton at Sweet Molly’s. Scratch that, they won’t be open. We’ll head to Andrews Farm Market & Winery instead at kilometre ~56.

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. Check the schedule for complete details.

Recreational Gravel: 21-24 km/h average
Intermediate Gravel: 24-26 km/h average

Sunday Gravel Ride | Aug 1st, 8:00 am

RIDE CANCELLED due to wet forecast, or perhaps we should just say ‘postponed’. This ride will run on Monday August 2nd starting at the same time and location.

Long weekends leave towns quieter than usual, which is an excellent time to take advantage of what’s in our own backyard. This route uses the best south Guelph has to offer, plus a lot of gravel and two-track further down. We will stop halfway at the The Danish Place, (which is open again – yay! … just not when we get there – boo!). Bring your own snacks – and a mask just in case.

The forecast is iffy at this point. Check back here for a weather cancellation posted no later than 7:00 am.

If this ride is cancelled on Sunday, it will run on Monday starting at the same time and location.

There are two groups: recreational and intermediate. Both use the same route at different paces. Check the schedule for complete details.

Recreational Gravel: 21-24 km/h average
Intermediate Gravel: 24-26 km/h average

Advance sign-up required. Click here: Sunday Gravel Rides.
