Level 1 Ride, Monday, July 8th

After a break for Canada Day, we will resume our Level 1 ride this week.  For those who are curious as to what a Level 2 ride is like, we’ll offer a chance for you to try it at your own pace this Wednesday (we’ll discuss this more at the ride on Monday). It’s always important to stay hydrated, especially with the hot weather we’ve been having so don’t forget to bring a drink – and your lights.

Time:  7:00 pm

Location:  Parking lot behind the Dutch Oven

Ride Leader:  Maria Garrett

Level 3-4 Monday Morning Ride

This is a ride for those interested in a few hills at a 3 to 4 level. We’ll see what time constraints anyone may have when we meet, any hills we may have our hearts set on, and take it from there.
Time: 9:30 am
Location: Furnace Street Arena (west side)
Ride Leader: Maria Garrett

No Level 1 Ride Monday, July 1st

There will be no Level 1 ride this Monday, July 1st.  In trying to keep our routes as flat as possible we can’t avoid the downtown area and it will be very busy with Waterfront Festival and Canada Day celebrations.  We’ll resume our Monday evening rides the following week.  Of special note for those wondering if they can do a Level 2 ride, we’ll have a special opportunity for you to try what it’s like on Wednesday, July 10th.  Watch for more information on this ride.

Happy Canada weekend!

Monday Evening Level 1 Ride

We’ll meet in the parking lot behind the Dutch Oven for a 7:00 start so be ready to roll when the town hall clock strikes on the hour!  Since it’s supposed to be cool near the lake tomorrow we’ll forgo an ice cream stop this week and keep moving.  Don’t forget your lights if you have them, and we’ll discuss bike lighting before we set off.
