Thursday July 24: Level 3 & 4 Ride, Cobourg & Hope Township

This time there are two routes to choose from, either a 48k for Level 3 and 65k for Level 4, both of them the same for the first 22km and the last part of the route as well. It’s only the middle part that’s different.

Hey folks….there are plenty out there who would like to ride at a level 3 pace and would be a whole lot happier knowing there are others doing the same, so please leave a comment and let others know your plans. All ya gotta do is say, “hey! I’m riding at a Level 3 pace, 48k”, or “Hey, I’ll ride at a Level 3 pace for 56k” and then voilà, there may be others that say they’ll ride with ya!

Start time: 9:00am

If you miss the ride on Thursday don’t sweat it. We’ll do it again on Sunday. Better yet, ride it both times if you you can!

Wednesday July 23rd: Level 2 ride

We’ve been getting some good mileage in this month, which is great if you want to work toward participating in the 100k on Labour Day weekend (or 50k is also an option).

Thursday July 17: Ride to Newcastle and Back

There’s a lot of construction scheduled for local roads, so we’re going to play it safe and head west along the Waterfront Trail all the way to Newcastle where the Port of Newcastle is quite charming. This one’s isn’t terribly hilly, though it is rather uphillish on the way back. If you want to shorten the distance, just turn around at any point and come back because the route back is the same as the route there.

Start time: 9:00am
Start location: Port Hope Town Hall
Level of difficulty: Level 3 and Level 4
Route Map: 57k printable route map here or view it on Ride with GPS

If you’d like to bike over to Port Hope from Cobourg, leave a comment to let others know when and where to meet to travel over together. While you’re at it, why not leave a comment to let people know which group you would like to ride with (Level 3 or 4)?
