Weekend Hikes: Saturday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 4th

It looks as though it’ll dry up for the weekend so let’s head out to Northumberland Forest for a hike each day. We’ll meet in the parking lot at Beagle Club as there is plenty of parking, but will be hiking on the trails across the road. Both days we’ll be out approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Bring hydration and a snack. To keep it simple, meeting location and start time is the same for both days.

Dates: Saturday, November 3rd and Sunday, November 4th
Start Time: 1:00
Meeting Location: Beagle Club parking lot
Hike Leader: Maria Siemiaszko

Start Time: 10:00
Route map: (46km) link to “Beagle Club to Alderville” route map on Ride with GPS

100km (with All Level possibility) Ride: Sunday, September 23rd

We’re going to have a 100km ride this Sunday afternoon, but there’s no reason that you can’t make this ride what you want of it! We start at the Keeler Centre and head east to along Rednersville Road in The County to make it a 100km ride, but if anyone wants a slower and shorter ride, you can do it at your pace and turn around when you want. It helps if you leave a comment as to your intentions so any like minded riders can link together.

Date: Sunday, September 23rd
Start Time: 1:00
Meeting Location: Keeler Centre, Colborne
Ride Leader: none! But leave a comment so we can buddy up
