Sandy Flats! Maple Sugar & 30-60km of hills! Sunday April 15

NOTE: POSTPONED UNTIL SUNDAY APRIL22 Our Annual Sandy Flats Pancake Ride is set for Sunday, April 15th! Pre-season rides are always weather dependent so if winter rears its ugly head again, we have an alternate date of Sunday, April 22nd. Take a look at some photos from past Pancake Rides! This can be a challenging ride—suitable for level 4s, or strong level 3s, mostly because there are hills and it’s the first ride of the season. But, it’s a great way to dive into the cycling season! Never fear, if 60k is not comfortable for you there is a 30k option.

Here’s how it works: We meet at the arena in Baltimore, bike to Sandy Flat Sugar Bush, nourish ourselves with some scrumptious pancakes and maple syrup (oh yeah, there are sausages too!). With full tummies, we pedal home again. Hills, baby, hills! No flatness on this route! If you would like to avoid a few of the hills you may wish to start in Centreton rather than the Baltimore Community Centre, reducing the distance to about 30k.

NOTE about starting in Centreton: Be sure to have your bike ready to go as soon as the group passes through—people chill super-fast if they have been riding and then stop for more than a few moments.

    Right now I am planning to attend and to start in Baltimore….assuming it eventually warms up and I can get in a few km prior to then 🙂

    Might not be able to attend now. Sadly, unless it is postponed to a later date due to bad weather.
