A slightly longer distance this week at 48K to Downtown or 39K to the official finish in Arkel. We’ll continue working towards great communication up and down the double pace line and a steady level of effort – moderate on the flats, slow up the hills and fast down them. We will build to an average 28 kph max and work together to bring everyone along. And please remember the African proverb: If you want to far, we go together. If you want to go fast, come out and try the Tuesday and Thursday rides! 😀 Please bring the usual requirements: fun loving attitudes and lights. Also, check out the Safety and Skills page and General Ride Info and select ‘Wednesday’ from the side bar. Expect that we may split into two groups if the warm weather brings out many riders. We try to do a slightly faster and/or more experienced group followed by a slightly slower and/or less experienced group as we did last week. Looking forward to a good safe ride and seeing everyone. Summertime in May.
Happy Mothers Day. It looks like we have awesome weather for those that are able to sneak away, we will head east up through Rockwood. Stop for nice coffee break in Belfountain after doing the Forks of the Credit climb. Then return through Erin, make sure to put on sunscreen.
So ‘Relaxed’ no pedaling required!
Forecast says this isn’t happening.
Patients grasshopper, soon the spring peepers will summon us. Until then, stay warm and dry. See you on the road when it’s warmer (soon I hope).
Ride Cancelled: Storm cells are tracking to pour all over the ride. We will take in a lot of scenic roads as we head through Dundas and Ancaster. We will stop in for a bite to eat in Waterdown after tackling Sydenham Hill. The weather looks like it should be perfect for a long day in the saddle.
