Sunday Gravel Ride | October 01 9:30 AM

Sunday’s forecast looks spectacular, so we’ve planned a nice loop to the north side of the city. There will be a pit stop in either Fergus (indoor plumbing) or Belwood; to be be determined by a vote at the start (or maybe we do both). It is looking a bit chilly, so start time is a bit later at 9:30 am, which is also good for those who are going to see Jim Cuddy (from Blue Rodeo fame) perform at Fixed Gear on Saturday night.

Bring money for a coffee stop. Tail lights are a good idea.

Load the route on your bike computer if you have one, here’s how.

Sunday Gravel Ride ERIN | September 03 9:00AM

Another remote start! It’s only a short drive to ride some awesome, and rather hilly gravel roads. Meet at the back parking lot (near the tennis courts) behind Center 2000 in Erin for a 9-am start. The route is a bit shorter than typical, but don’t be fooled, it’s to compensate for the elevation gains. And, if you’ve never summited “The Grange” before, you owe it to yourself to use your prime summertime fitness to challenge yourself on one of Southern Ontario’s most feared/revered gravel climbs. Plus there’s a decent coffee/treats stop – right beside the trail – at exactly the halfway point in Inglewood. Since this is an “away” ride, carpooling can be arranged amongst yourselves or you can contact Meg and she’ll help you out. Also, if you are planning on driving and have room, please let her know if you are willing to take others.

Bring money for a coffee stop. Tail lights are a good idea.

Sunday Gravel Ride | August 06 8:00AM

This loop is sort of a tour of the local MTB locations (e.g., Guelph Lake, Arkell, Twin Pods, Little Tract) without riding any of the actual MTB trails. Rest stop at the Danish Place at about km 55. The loop is 91 km, if G1 wants a bit longer, at the exit of Fletcher Creek Preserve they can turn east on Gore Road, ride Lafarge 2000 Trail south down to Concession 8 west, and then head north on Valens Rd, to the Danish Place (adds about 15km).

Bring money for a coffee stop and tail lights are a good idea.
