Thursday May 18th A/B rides | 6:30pm

**RIDE IS CANCELLED** There is a SEVERE thunderstorm watch in effect. The radar shows small storm cells moving across Southern Ontario north of Guelph. I’m thinking it will miss us, but for everyones safety I’m cancelling the ride. Sorry for the late notice.

Here’s a quick recap on our Thursday night rides: The ‘A’ Group is a spirited group ride (32+ kph) with possible attacks (discouraged before halfway point). Dropped riders have the option to wait for and join the trailing ‘B’ Group. The ‘B’ Group does the same route but as a steady/organized group ride (28-32 kph), free of attacks–although some group separation may occur within final five kilometres. The forecast includes possible showers and thunderstorms. Watch here for a final decision in case of cancellation by 5:30 PM.



  1. EC Weather Alerts adds : “…very strong wind gusts can damage buildings, down trees and blow large vehicles off the road.” Hmm. I wonder how a MAMIL on a CF bike will fair in these conditions?

  2. My apologies to everyone for changing my mind on the ride. I’ll head down to the start location in case some riders missed my latest edit and showed up.

  3. Yes. And the sun is shining yet the Environment Canada forecast for Guelph says: Severe thunderstorm watch in effect.

  4. :'( I am tired of this wind. Looks like no rain but 60 km gusts!
