Cancelled – Sunday Medium Moderate Road Ride | October 23rd 11:00AM

Cancelling due to low/no participation. Join us on the gravel or L&F ride instead.

The weather looks amazing for a late season ride. If for some crazy reason that changes an update will be posted here no later than an hour before the ride. Since you’ve been working hard all season to strengthen the body and mind, what better time than now to test yourself with the Rattlesnake / Appleby Line climb. If you’ve never done this climb then no better time to try it with a group. We’ll be sure to re-group at the top (a.k.a. waiting for me) and the mid ride break is shortly after as well. Bring money for a coffee stop in Campbellville. Tail lights are a good idea.

RIDE CANCELLED | Sunday Medium & Moderate Road Ride | August 21st 8:00AM

RIDE CANCELLED. It looks like there’s a 50/50 chance we’d get wet early in the ride and radar suggests a large burst around 10:00 – 11:00 so airing on the side of caution and cancelling the ride.

The weather is not looking good at this time so be sure to check back no later than an hour before the ride to see if we’ll be riding, fingers crossed. This ride will take us east, south, west and north as I couldn’t decide which way to go. We’ll make a stop in Hespeler to refuel as needed. The stop is a bit later in the route so be sure to bring plenty of water. The unofficial end of the ride will be at Gordon and Clair Roads. Bring money for the refuel stop and tail lights are a good idea.

Sunday Medium & Moderate Road Ride | July 31st 8:00AM

Butter Tarts! Now that I have your attention, Sunday morning rides north to Belwood for butter tarts is a mid summer must do. The weather looks like it’ll be a perfect morning for a ride north. We’ll ride at the posted pace but ensure we regroup often if needed. Bring plenty of fluids and money for the butter tart stop. Tail lights are a good idea for visibility.
