For this ride, we’ll ride out to Arkell, across Hume then up to Eden Mills through the lovely Ash Street. From there, we’ll cross Guelph Line and take advantage of the NW winds and ride all the way down to Halton Tract (where we’ll be riding on Sunday’s Great Gravel Ride – sign up for that!). From there, we’ll cross back over Guelph Line, and back up Second Line. With any luck, the winds will have died off a bit by then. Either way, it won’t be nearly as hot as the past few days, and might actually be chilly towards the end.
Bringing lights is always a good idea. Disclaimer: Depending on rider turn out, some Speed Groups may have to be combined.
