Level 2 Rides: Tues May 7 and Thurs May 9

Tues May 7 Level 2 Ride: Donegan Cobourg

We will try again to have the weather cooperate. We will meet at Donegan Park parking lot at the foot of D’Arcy St. Cobourg. After a short safety chat about signaling and protocols like “Car Back!” we will ride along Lakeshore up to Hwy 2 and take Willmott to the lakeshore again so that by the time we make Normar Rd. the Cobourg Cycling Club Time Trialers will have been long gone. We will go along Hwy 2 in the bike lane to Archer’s Rd and then back to Donegan via Hwy 2.

Helmets are a must. Water bottles highly recommended. If you are coming by car and have a foot pump you can come a bit earlier so we can make sure everyone’s tires are up to pressure.

There is a hill to get over the railroad tracks on Hwy 2 at the east end of town. We will be taking frequent breaks to get our breath, drink and socialize. I will be wearing a wool vest under a high visibility windproof jacket, a buff, cargo pants and gloves.

Start Time: 6:30
Ride Leader: Geoffrey Honey
Start Location: Donegan Park parking lot 25 D’Arcy St. Cobourg.

Thurs May 9 Level 2 Ride: Wicklow Beach

We will build our stamina and group riding techniques out in the quiet county atmosphere of Wicklow Beach Boatlaunch. If you need a lift for your bike to the start at the boatlaunch or if you can offer a lift for another please chime in in the comment section so that we can make sure everyone can participate.

Remember that it is cool still by the lake so you will need wool or fleece under a windproof layer. Bring water. I will be dressed as for Tuesday. This lovely ride near Lake Ontario is mostly flat so you can practice safe group riding techniques on gentle inclines.

Start Time: 6:30
Ride Leader: Geoffrey Honey
Start Location: Wicklow Beach Boatlaunch, 133 Lakeport Rd, Colborne
