Tues June 27, Level 2 Ride Sylvan Glen

Pam has a lovely ride for us. Please chime in if you can come and if you can sweep for the ride. She says:

“I will start my June 27th ride at the Sylvan Glen conservation parking lot in the Municipality of Port Hope.  It’s on Sylvan Glen Rd just north of Dale Rd. We’ll do a 22km route that is mostly flat and very beautiful. (Same as the one we did last year from the Canton church.) We’ll make a couple of stops to re-hydrate and check in to see how everyone’s doing. And we will have FUN!”

Start Time: 6:30 sharp
Ride Leader: Pam Tate
Start Location: Sylvan Glen Conservation Area parking lot. Municipality of Port Hope

Thursday, June 24th: Thursday morning ride

Weather permitting, this ride will leave from Richard’s house in Hastings and go to the Stoney Lake Market where we can stop and get a snack before riding back to Hastings. Richard’s wife Leigh has kindly offered to be on standby if anyone needs a lift, or if someone would rather be dropped off at Stoney Lake to join us for just the ride back which would be more like a level 2 ride. Let us know you are planning to come and we’ll send you the address.

Date: Thursday, June 22nd
Start Time: 10:00
Distance: 66km
Ride leader: Richard Thompson
Meeting Location: Hastings (the address will be sent to those who comment that they are coming

Thursday June 27: 50km EVENING Ride to Millbrook

We’re heading on up to Millbrook. Nice and simple route straight up County Rd. 10. You’ll climb slowly all the way from Welcome and then it’s going to be a zippity fast ride back down the same road. You don’t even need a route map for this one. It’s not as crazy hilly as one might think so if you are a relatively strong Level 3 rider and you have a road bike, you’ll be able to handle this one!

Start time: 6:30pm
Ride Leader: Anita Macklin
Start location: George Hamilton School parking lot in Welcome

Wed. June 21: All Levels Ride & Beer on the Patio

It’s the third Wednesday of the month which means an “All Levels Ride”, this time followed by beer on the Patio at The Cat ‘n Fiddle in Cobourg. The rides starts and finishes at parking lot on Covert St. and after the ride portion is complete, we’ll mosey on over to the patio for beer and snacks.

All Levels Rides: There’s just one route out-and-back route. You ride for time instead of distance so everyone can start and finish together regardless of speed. It’s your chance to try out the next level up. There’s really no risk because if you can’t keep up you can just drop back and people from the other levels will be coming up behind you. There will be a designated Leader setting the pace for each of the Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 so you can just choose your level and ride!

Time: 6:30–8:00pm (ride) 8:00-9:30pm (Social)
Start location: The parking lot on Covert St. in Cobourg
Route map: printable route map here, or view it on Ride with GPS

Important: Please RSVP so that we can ensure adequate patio space for everyone! RSVP by leaving us a comment….just tell us you’re coming!
