The weather is looking fantastic for a Gravel Ride this Sunday!
Folks have been asking for another Remote Start ever since we rode out of Creemore, so we’re going to the Grey Highlands!
START LOCATION & ROUTE UPDATE: We have learned that there is a major bridge out on our original planned route. We will now use a route we were saving for next year which is just west of the original in the Grey Highlands. Drive time to the start is the same as previous.
We start pedalling at 10:30 am from a club member’s parent’s place near Heathcote, ON. It’s about 1.5 hours drive from Guelph. The route is 86% unpaved according to RWGPS.
Bring a small snack for an early stop at 30K and we will stop at 50K for a paid coffee/snack at Marilynne restaurant in Markdale. Bring money for that.
Afterwards, on the way home, a food stop can be had at the Bicycle Cafe in Flesherton – so fitting.
Carpooling will be arranged through the GCC DISCORD Server.
This could be the last warm gravel ride of the year, depending on how the weather goes. Who knows? So come on out!
Tail lights are a good idea.
Load the route on your bike computer if you have one, here’s how.
