RIDE IS ON! Its’ grey and overcast, but there is no rain according to the radar for sometime.
It’s the Labour Day long weekend, or the ‘real’ start to the year as I like to call it. And if you were planning on avoiding driving amongst the crazed masses, this gravel ride might be just the thing to keep you sane and not too far, or long, from the sanctuary of your home. All club members are welcome and the pace will be reasonable with two speed groups to choose from. Next year there might even be three!
This route has something old and something new. It has the longest uninterrupted gravel section of any route we have put together, 49km! RWGPS map surface markings are not completely accurate, BTW.
Bring money for a Butter Tart stop at the Belwood Country Market.
Load the route on your bike computer if you have one, here’s how.
