Well, it’s sort of a century ride…..a century ride plus 7% tax (for 107km total). We meet at the Bewdley Arena at 9am and head out for a tour around Rice Lake starting with the south side. There’s no planned lunch stop, but Hastings is about half-way so feel free to use the comments feature to organize if you wish to pause and eat somewhere. Or, just grab something on the go. As usual, Century Rides start at 9:00am.
The route is not exactly flat. There are a few (okay, a lot) of hills. Up, down, repeat…most of the way. On the northern portion after Hastings we’ll follow part of the Lang Hastings Trail just to keep us off the busy road. This ride is a little on the challenging side. If you are Level 3 and want to give it a try, be sure to allow yourself plenty of time and have a plan B if the hills become too much.
If you are planning to ride, leave a comment indicating your anticipated speed (slow, fast, or super fast).
