Sunday Gravel Ride | July 30 7:30AM
Hey y’all. I’ve got something a little different for this edition of the Sunday Gravel ride. This week’s ride will offer two distances. Long distance riders will start on bikes in Guelph, and the shorter distance riders will drive to the remote starting location. The intention for this type of ride is to go further afield than the usual 80-100km ride from Guelph will allow. For most riders the following routes will get them out to trails and roads that they don’t often ride.
Menno Country 165 leaves GYMC at 7:30. There will rest stops at Millverton (60km), and St Jacobs (128km). This route will be ridden at G2 pace
Menno Country 90 leaves Yatton Rd. parking lot at 9:00. Rest stop at Milverton (25km). This route will have G2 and G3 pace options.
Load the route you plan to ride on your bike computer if you have one, here’s how. Stay tuned for updates as the date approaches.
