CANCELLED Sunday Medium Moderate Road Ride | May 1st, 11AM

UPDATE 10 A.M: RIDE CANCELLED. With wet roads and more rain in the forecast, I think we’ll make discretion the better part of valour today. Sigh.

For our first Medium Moderate Sunday Road Ride, we will head down to the Flying Monkey Bike Shop and Coffee Bar in Campbellville where we will sip java and ogle all the fancy bikes before heading home through the metropolis of Crief and past the Ellis Chapel. It was built in 1861 and is the only known chapel in Puslinch with easy access to McDonald’s french fries. Alas, we won’t be stopping at the chapel (or for french fries) though if you feel the need to pray to the cycling gods at some point on the ride that’s completely up to you: this is beyond my purview as ride leader.

As this is a new ride, I’m sure there are questions as to the speed, intensity and overall approach. In a nutshell, we will adhere to the officially posted average of 27 to 29 km/h and work together to make it fun for everyone. If you are stronger, you should expect to pull more. If you are still getting back into fighting shape after a long COVID winter of wine drinking and potato chip consumption, well, you can hang out at the back with the rest of the fun kids. As this was my approach to off-season training, I plan to do most of my finest leading while dangling precariously off the rear of the bunch.

OK, this is already the longest ride preview in GCC club history (which is only like 4 days but still.) Come out on Sunday and let’s ride bikes, drink coffee and make our offerings to the cycling gods. It will be fun, I promise.
