The forecast for Saturday looks spectacular with 14c and sunshine so it means just one thing—our Annual Sandy Flats Pancake Ride! There are hills and it’s the first ride of the year so may be challenging for some, making it best suited for strong riders. Never fear though, if 60k is a little intimidating for you there is a 30k option. This is a pre-season ride meaning it’s weather dependent so do keep an eye out for changing forecasts.
Here’s how it works: We meet at the Baltimore arena then bike to Sandy Flats Sugar Bush. After stuffing ourselves silly with pancakes, maple syrup and sausages we pedal home again. Hills, baby, hills! No flatness on this route.
NOTE about starting in Centreton (30k option): Be sure to have your bike ready to go as soon as the 60k group arrives—they won’t stop for more than a minute or they’ll chill super-fast.
