Thursday, July 2nd: Full Moon Hike

We’ve usually posted hikes during the off season, but if anyone feels like a hike Thursday evening (and aren’t already planning on doing the Level 4 ride), you’re welcome to come for a full moon hike at Maria’s, outside of Warkworth. This hike is weather permitting only, but the forecast is looking pretty good right now. We’ll start hiking at 8:00. watch the moon rise at 9:20, and finish up around 10:00. Comment if you are coming and we’ll provide you with the address/directions.

Date; Thursday, July 2nd

Time: 8:00 pm

Location: Maria’s house, outside of Warkworth

Activity: 2 hour hike (leave the bikes at home for this one!)

Monday, June 29th: Level 1 ride

Monday’s ride will be led by another of our official new ride leaders, Colin Banfield. He’s planning a route heading to the east end, and true to his field of expertise will check the weather radar beforehand in case of potential inclement conditions.

Time: 6:30 pm
Start Location: parking lot behind the Dutch Oven
Ride Leader: Colin Banfield

Saturday, June 27th: Level 2+ ride

We have an enthusiatic group of newly minted ride leaders, and one of them, Roberto, has offered to lead a ride this Saturday. With more ride leaders we have the potential to post more rides, for all levels, so a big thank you to all of our volunteers!

Date: Saturday, June 27th

Time: 10:00

Start Location: the park at Westwood and Carlisle

Level: 2 plus (a little more distance and a little faster pace, but this route is pretty flat)

Ride Leader: Roberto Almeida

Please help Roberto plan for this ride by letting him know if you will be there.

Sunday, June 28th: Levels 1 and 2 Presqu’ile Ride

This Sunday we’ll head out for a ride in the Presqu’ile area. The roads in the park have been repaved so we’ll enjoy a smooth as well as scenic ride! The ride will have 2 options, those wishing a shorter distance will meet at the boat launch parking lot just east of the park, while riders wanted a longer ride with a couple of little hills will meet at an earlier time in Colborne and meet the Level 1 riders at the boat launch. Bring fluids, a snack, and some money as there’s usually an opportunity for ice cream (although the fudge at the light house is always popular!)

Level 1
Time: 11:00
Meeting Place: boat launch parking lot east of Presqu’ile Park
Ride Leader: Dennis Benson

Level 2
Time: 10:00
Meeting Place: Keeler Centre parking lot, Colborne

Please take note of the start time and location for the ride you wish to do, and let us know if we’re to expect you!
