You’ll be home by lunch with this nice 76 km CCW Fergus, Elora, West Montrose and Maryhill loop with no Middlebrook boneshaker! Bring a little cash and we’ll stop in Elora for coffee and fancy ice cream (if anyone wants one). The weather is looking fantastic! Looking forward to seeing you.
The Ride is on. However, we will shorten the route to avoid some rain that is predicted to hit at noon. We will remove the Bellfoutain section and loop through Erin instead. We will keep an eye on the radar on route and make seem real time decisions about possibly adding to the route based on updated weather info.
For those of you not doing the Tour de Guelph here is an alternative ride. The actual distance back to our stoping point in Arkel is 97km. We have the option to shorten or lengthen the route depending on what people want to do before or once we are out on the road. No one will be asked to do a longer ride than they would wish to do. Food stop in Bellfountain.
**RIDE IS CANCELLED** “Showers and risk of thunderstorms” – EC. “Sad” – DT. The plan is to do a CW loop around Morriston, then to Hespler for a halfway pit stop (bring a little cash) and then up towards Maryhill and back into Guelph from the north for an 80k jaunt. Final call will be posted Sunday morning at 8AM. Here’s the infra red sat picture of the coming weather system – looking for a change in the weather. Oh, and happy birthday Vicky!
Medium Ride and Happy Mothers Day. We are Using the same route from the ride I led a few weeks ago, however, the gravel road section has been removed from the route do to the roughness of the road as a result of the ongoing construction. We will also pass the highest point in halton region; bring some Oxygen bottles! We will stop for drinks and food in Erin with a few other re-fueling points en-route if needed. The distance to our de facto end point in Arkell is 85km. We will be focusing on riding as a safe and cohesive group. Since there are some big rollers, we will allow folks to climb at their own pace on the big hills and then we will regroup at the tops of the hills. High Temp of 15 on the forecast, dress well since it will be much cooler than that when we start.
