Ride Sunday, April 8th, 2012 10am

If you’re not busy hunting for easter eggs, or preparing ham or turkey, plan on digging out the bicycle and going for a club ride. Just like Thursday, this route’s 38.5km but you can shorten it to 19.5km if you wish, and also bypass the big Crossen Hill climb. But don’t let hills scare you. Everyone does them at their own pace and if you want to take a scenery break part way up, that’s okay too.

The extended option: At 25k: head west on Vimy Ridge, then south to Bethel Grove, then Jibb, and then re-join the group in Camborne.

Start location: The Mill Restaurant parking lot, Cobourg
Route map: “The Big Loop” route map here
Start time: 10:00am

Again, its helpful if you comment below, mentioning what distance you’re hoping to ride. It will let others do a little mental planning and don’t worry—we won’t hold you to it, you can still change your mind when you’re out there. We just like to get a rough idea.

      Great, David! We’ll be happy to have you join us. You could bring your membership form and OCA waiver with you to the beginning of the ride. Get ready to climb some hills! See you then. 🙂

    Sounds like it’s a newbie weekend. I, too, am planning on joining the club – will bring membership form and OCA waiver. I’ll do the 38 km, or possibly the extended. Thought I’d play that by ear.
