Congratulations to the club members who completed the 100km ride to Presqu’ile and back! Marianne, Rick, Maiike, Peter, Ruth, Vivian, Paul, Randy and Anita. Awesome job everyone.

Ride: SATURDAY Sep 17th: 100km (or part thereof) to Presqu’ile and back

SATURDAY RIDE. NO SUNDAY RIDE DUE TO THE TERRY FOX RUN.

Don’t worry, you don’t need to ride the whole distance if you just want to do a small portion of it, turning around and returning as desired. Departure time will be 9:00 because of the distance.

Those wanting to do the whole distance, we’ll go all the way to the lighthouse in the park, then we’ll stop for lunch at the Harbourview Cafe before returning home.

LUNCH: Harbourview Cafe

It’s a nice easy, flat(ish) route, so for those of you worried about the distance challenge, have no fear, it can be done much easier than the 106km around Rice Lake was!

Start time: 9:00am
Start location: Donegan Park
Ride Leader: Anita Macklin

Please comment below if you are coming and the approximate distance you might be interested in. Also, please mention if you wish to join in as a group for lunch.
