Wednesday 08/25 – Social Ride, 6:00pm

Reminder – Rides have moved to a 6pm start.

Small chance of rain but fingers crossed. It will be very hot and humid so bring extra water. Final call regarding the weather will be made no later than 5:00pm.

We’ll ride some classic roads this week and as usual will have a slightly longer route for the A group and a slightly shorter route for the B and C groups to get everyone back with sufficient daylight to spare.

Note that the A route and the B/C route do go up different roads on the way back to Arkell so please have the route loaded.

Groups will aim for the following paces, especially in this heat:

Wednesday A: 28-30 km/h average
Wednesday B: 26-28 km/h average
Wednesday C: 24-26 km/h average

Please sign up in advance for the ride here.

Rides start at 6:00 PM from the East End Library at the corner of Starwood and Watson.

Start locations for the various groups are as indicated below:

Wednesday A, B & C Rides April 17, 6:00PM

RIDE IS ON! New for 2019 are Three pace levels for Wednesday, check our new schedule for all the speed averages and descriptions. As usual, we will be starting at the East End Library. Be ready to pedal at 6:00 PM by the entrance doors, but please don’t block them. This time of year we have shorter distances due to the early sunset and a slightly shortened course for the C group – see the two maps below. And as it’s the beginning of the season please take a moment to read up on the Group Ride Guidelines as well as the Safety & Skills page. Are you new here? Then an extra special welcome to you and please be sure to read our New Member page. Bringing lights is always a good idea. Unfortunately, the weather conditions aren’t looking great at this point, (it is still very early) so be sure to check back for a cancellation update posted no later than 5:00 PM.

Club Work Night – Side Road 25 Corner Sweeping Wednesday April 3rd 6:30 PM

These corners are notorious for not being swept by the county and we end up tip-toeing through the sand all season. So lets all chip in before riding begins and make quick work of increasing our safety. Especially since this road is instrumental in our new ‘all member ride‘ Tuesday Interval Night (TIN). Grab (or borrow) a push broom and meet us at 6:30 PM at the corner of the 25th Side Road and Townline . This will go quickly with more hands on deck. What a great way to contribute to your club and sport (and kick off the season)! Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thursday A/B Ride | Aug 30th, 6:00PM

6:00 PM Start! Club Social at the Wooly 9:00 PM.
Late season fun!
Two rides, two routes, one small hilly difference – load accordingly! A wee shorter distance than last week with some new pavement on Victoria. EC says no chance of rain. Temperatures promise to be perfect. Only route difference is the ‘A’ group will continue south past Leslie and stuff a Col in between their Burgs – chamois butter may be required! Sunset is at 8:01 PM. Bring lights as usual. See you soon!

Here’s a nice rolling route to the south and west of Guelph with some new pavement in a few places. Quite a few turns to remember so load this one into that thing that’s been cluttering up your bars for years – Garmin… not just for numbers anymore! You’ll figure it out, children do it everyday. The official finish will be at Hamilton Corners at the Volvo Garage at Gordon and Arkell Rds. A few will want to head back to the library on Arkell and Victoria Rds. and others can find there way home from Gordon St. Sunset 8:43, bring lights just in case. Check back here for final rain cancellation to be posted no later than 5:00 PM.
