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.

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)


Wednesday Relaxed Ride – August 16th 6:30 PM

And now for something completely different…
A gentle rolling 46 km route through some favourite areas to match the shortening mid August days. Forestell, Blackbridge, Chilligo all with a Paisley tie(in)- c’est bon! And a small section of dirt road… ever so wafer thin (to keep us honest). Bring lights just in case. See you soon.
