Well, it’s the last official club ride of 2019… and it’s looking like rain. Let’s hope the forecast turns around. We’ll do a combined ride (all Sunday levels) clockwise to the south. Bring warm clothes!
8:00 AM Weather Call: Ride is on!
There is definitely some rain coming today, it’s just a bit difficult to say exactly when. EC says 40% chance with the Likelihood of Precipitation being ‘Low’.
Medium pace (28-30 kph)
The Mid distance 78 km group stops in Georgetown for coffee and a snack at the Silvercreek Cafe. You’ll be home in time for lunch on this ride.
The Longer distance 116 km group sets out with the medium group and then carries on through Glen Williams, Terra Cotta, Inglewood, Belfountain and Erin before getting back to Guelph. Great cafe stop opportunities on this ride!
Don’t forget to bring a bit of cash!
The weather is looking a bit ‘so, so’ as of Friday’s posting. Weather updates will be made right up to Sunday at 8 AM for the final call. Hope you can join us.
Happy Thanksgiving weekend. The weather looks nice for this weekend we will be heading up to Belfountain. There is an extra loop for people that want a few extra kms while everyone else has a coffee break in Belfountain. As a treat on the way back we have some fresh tarmac on County road 50 to try out.
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.
