Thursday May 18: Level 4 ride (37 or 47km)

It’s FAST-ride night! That means speed rather than strength & hills. We won’t fib to you ….there are always a few hills. You’ll have two distances to choose from, beginning from the Hamilton Township Offices parking lot. We’ll head up to Gore’s Landing and then take Rice Lake Scenic Drive to Harwood. That’s the point where you’ll decide whether or not to take the extra 10k extended route or just head south on Harwood Rd. Chris Miller will be your ride leader tonight, and it’s his first time leading, so go easy on the guy! 🙂

Start time: 6:30pm
Start location: Hamilton Township Offices parking lot (Burnham St. and Majestic Hills Rd.)
Ride Leader: Chris Miller
Route map (37k): Printable map (to come), or link on Ride with GPS

Hey, how about leaving Chris a comment to let others know which distance you hope to do? It helps him to know how many people to expect.

Tuesday May 16, Level 2 Ride, Willmott

Let’s try again. Weather seems to be drier, but bring a wind-proof layer to keep the wind chill down. We will have a short orientation and safety talk. Please bring a floor pump if you have one and are coming by car. Also, check the maximum pressure for your tires (located on the side-wall of the tire) so we know what we are aiming for.

This will be a “break us in slowly” ride from the Willmott parking lot, out on the Waterfront Trail and back. There is one hill. We will rest lots. No one is ever left behind. We will be staying to the lower end of the Level 2 speed and distance so think 15 kpm average and overall distance 15-20 klm.

Guests may ride with a waiver and 5$. (goes toward membership). Helmets and fun are mandatory.

Start Time: 6:30 pm
Ride Leader: Geoffrey Honey
Start Location: 210 Willmott St. Cobourg (parking lot Old Coke Plant/ Sleep Country)
