Monday, May 23rd: Level 3 ride

Roberto has offered to lead a Level 3 ride this Monday evening (thanks Roberto!). It will likely head out to the St. Anne’s Spa area, so expect a nice climb. The Level 1 ride will be departing from the same area so it’s a chance for a couple of mixed levels to car pool or ride to the meeting spot together. It may also be a chance to socialize over some ice cream after ride (if you hurry!)

Start Time: 6:00

Sunday May 22: Mixed Levels ride along Waterfront Trail West

This Sunday we’ll take the Waterfront Trail westbound over to Port Hope and continue along the lakeshore. Riders can turn around at any point they wish, making the ride as long or as short as desired. The route is relatively easy except for the big hill to get across Port Hope. No route map necessary for this ride since it’s the signed Waterfront Trail.

General notes about Sunday morning Mixed Level Rides: All club members are welcome to participate, though there won’t be a designated leader for each Level as usually occurs on the regular evening rides. All those riding must be equipped with a route map (unless it’s the Waterfront Trail), carry a tire changing kit with a spare tube. The group will start out together, breaking off into smaller groups of similar speed and ability.

Start time: 10:00am
Start location: The park on Carlisle St. between Ewing and Westwood.
Ride Leader: Roberto Almeida

Please comment below if you are coming and the approximate distance you might be interested in. Leaving a comment helps others plan accordingly.

Tonight’s ride (Monday, May 16) cancelled: For those who are really hoping the rain will just disappear it’s not to be the case. Radar shows a little clearing about 5:30 but then more rain is on it’s way about 6:00. We’re making the decision to cancel tonight’s ride. There’s still the All Levels ride on Wednesday night that you are most welcome to participate in! See you then!

Wednesday May 18: ALL Levels Ride & Social at The Mill

This will be the first of our All Levels Ride & Social that takes place the third Wednesday of each month. The rides starts and finishes at The Mill Restaurant where after a one hour ride we’ll head inside to the Pub area for those wishing to order up beer and snacks.

How the All Levels Ride works: There’s just one route out-and-back and you ride for time instead of distance which means that everyone starts and finishes together regardless of how fast or slow you ride. It’s a great opportunity for people to try out the next level up and if you can’t keep up there’s no worries because you can always just drop back to the level coming up behind you. There will be a designated Leader for each of the Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 who will operate like pace-bunnies maintaining the appropriate pace for your chosen level of difficulty. That way you can see what it feels like at the next level!

Time: 6:00–7:30pm (ride) 7:30-9:00pm (Social)
Start location: The Mill parking lot
Route map: 36km printable route map here, or view it on Ride with GPS

Important: Please RSVP so that we can ensure adequate reservation for space at The Mill
