Monday, Sept. 5th: Evening Novice Ride (6:30pm)

New start time: 6:30pm

This ride is being posted on the website, but many of the club members will already have rode 106km earlier in the day and may not wish to ride in the evening, but if people wish to get together and do the usual Monday night ride, here is the place to discuss a starting point and a ride leader. Is there anyone interested in leading this ride? We need a leader and a starting point in order for this ride to occur.

Start time: 6:30
Start location: Donegan Park
Ride Leader: ?

Please indicate by commenting if you are interested in riding and also if you wish to lead the ride.


Ride: Sunday September 4th: Town and Country (29.5km) (10am)

Please note that the start time is 10:00am

This ride is going to be an easy 29 km because of the biggy 100km ride that many are doing on the next day (Monday). This is the very first route that we did as a club way back in May. It’s easy, not very hilly, so should be a good ride for all skill levels. This would be a great ride for some of the Monday riders who are looking for a little more challenge.

Start time: 10:00am
Start location: The park on Carlisle St. between Ewing St. and Westwood.

Monday, August 29th: Evening Novice Ride (7:00pm)

This is the last time that the Monday ride will start at 7:00 due to the shorter days, and make sure the ride is done by around 8:00.

Start time: 7:00
Start location: Donegan Park
Route: To be determined
Ride Leader: Randy Albon

Please indicate by commenting if you will come out for the ride.


Ride: Sunday Aug. 28th: Wicklow Beach and Back (9am)

Like Thursday’s ride, this ride is an “out and back” ride. Riders can turn around at any point to make the ride shorter than the planned 36km—or extend the ride to Colborne or beyond if you want more distance.

We’ll trying something new—there won’t be a ride leader. Instead, riders should plan to break off into smaller riding groups of similar skill, ability, and desired distance.

Start time: 9:00am
Start location: Donegan Park
Route map and directions: “Wicklow Beach” route map

Please comment below if you are coming and also indicate your anticipated distance (or time) so that others can also do a little planning ahead and hopefully everyone will have someone to ride with!

Ride: Thursday Aug. 25th: Wicklow Beach and Back (9am)

This ride is an “out and back” ride, which means that it will allow for people to turn around at any point to make the ride shorter if desired. The entire route is only 36km, but if anyone is interested in extending it, please mention it below.

We’ll try something different this time. We won’t assign a “leader” this time. After starting, riders should plan instead to break off into smaller riding groups of similar skill and ability.

Start time: 9:00am

Wednesday evening Advanced ride: Aug. 24th (6:00pm)

The days are getting shorter, so we’ll ride at 6:00pm and we’ll do the short version of the “Tour de Baltimore” which is 35.5km. Anita will be away this week, so there won’t actually be a ride “leader” this time. Please print out your own maps and bring them with you.

Start time: 6:00pm
Start location: The Mill parking lot
Route map and directions: “Tour de Baltimore” (The short route, 35km)

Please indicate by commenting if you will come out for the ride so other riders know how many to expect.

106km Labour Day Ride: Monday, Sept. 5th (Around Rice Lake)

Please note that this will be a 9:00am start.

The route: 106km. (Okay, so it’s a little more than 100). It’s hilly in portions, and will certainly be a challenge. This is a ride for those of you who are looking for some serious distance.

Lunch: Hastings is a halfway point, so we suggest stopping for lunch at La Gondola’s which will be on the left hand side of the road as you pass through town. There’s an outdoor patio and they offer a selection of sandwiches, burgers, pizza, pasta, panzerotto, and salads. Vegetarian pizzas and pasta are also available.

Please comment below if you think you are coming.
