Sunday June 23: “Uphill Downhill” ride (36, 56 or 69km)

It’s gonna be a hot one tomorrow! 30°C and that’s before humidex. Bring lots of water. Three distances to choose from. Regardless of what distance you choose, it’s primarily uphill for the first half and downhill for the second half. All three routes are the same for the first part and the last part. The difference being in the middle:

36km riders turn right at 17k onto Speechly, everyone else goes left.
56km riders turn right at 26km onto Broomfield, 69km riders continue straight.

Start time: 10:00am
Start location: The Arena on Furnace St. in Cobourg

Ride Leaders:

-(69km): Randy Albon

Please indicate below if you are willing to be the ride leader for any of these distances. See you all then!


  1. I think on the 56 km route you should turn Left on Speechley to get up to Centreton Rd(instructions say to turn Right which would take you south.. … ?)

    • Hmmm…..I’ll have to check that one out. These mapping services don’t always generate the written instructions perfectly. And Randy seems to think the same error might have occurred on a previous ride.

  2. I’ve investigated and made the correction. Marianne would make a great inspector! When we turn at Speechly, if you are turning north it should read “turn left at Stuart” (Speechly is called Stuart going north).

    New map is posted!

  3. I’ve made a few corrections to the maps and uploaded new ones. So, if you printed it off before 8:45 this morning you’ll need the new one. Sorry.

  4. That was a great new route Anita – thanks ! I was more tired than ever before – but the roads were awesome. Hope you found your strawberries !
