Thursday Sept. 18: Ride from Donegan Park 10am

If you missed it last Sunday, we’ll do it on Thursday. Shelter Valley Road. Massey Road has newish gravel for about 2-3 kms but it’s rideable, just be cautious. Otherwise, it’s a good route and there’s sunshine in the forecast.

Start time: 10am
Start location: Donegan Park
Route map: Printable route map here, or view it on Ride with GPS

Please let others know you are riding tomorrow. The Thursday group is typically quite small so it’s good to know you won’t be standing there alone at the park waiting. :)

Wednesday September 17: Final All Levels Ride for 2014

This will be the last “All Levels” ride for the season. (not the final ride of the season….just the last All Levels ride) We have reserved with The Mill, who have kindly agreed to let us start and finish the ride in their parking lot, and afterward we will head inside to the Pub area for those wishing to order up beer and snacks. In case you’ve forgotten, an All Levels ride means that there’s just one route and everyone rides—but at their respective paces, Levels 1-4.

It’s an opportunity to try the next level up, and since everyone follows the same route you can always drop back and wait for the group behind you. We will ride out for 35 minutes then turn around and come back the same way—Everyone finishes at the same time.

Lights on bikes are essential. The sun sets at 7:18pm on Wednesday, meaning lights are required on both the front and back of your bike as of 6:48pm

Time: 6:00–7:10pm (ride) 7:15-9:00pm (social)
Start location: The Mill parking lot
Route map: 36km printable route map here, or view it on Ride with GPS
Ride leaders: TBA

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

Sunday September 14: Ride from Donegan Park 10am

The weather should be nicer, but a bit cool tomorrow so we might try this route that takes us up to Shelter Valley Road. We don’t yet have a report about road conditions on Massey, so it’s possible that an alternative may be required after we go out and do the test drive in the car. Therefore, don’t be printing out the route map till morning time, because it might just change… But in the meantime:

Start time: 10am
Start location: Donegan Park
Route map: Printable route map here, or view it on Ride with GPS

*Note: (Road report), We have driven the route and all roads are reasonable to ride. The gravel on Massey Rd. has been packed down enough, but please exercise caution  near the edges, for 3km until you reach St. Annes.

Short notice, we know…but can ya let others know if you plan to ride? Just press the little ole “Comment” button and say “I’m riding!”.  :)
