Ride: Sunday July 31st: “Butter Tart Run” 9am

Butter Tarts and Cherry cream cheese danishes are enough to bring us back to Harwood! The Thursday ride goes there and so does this Sunday’s. Since it’s likely to be crazy hot outside, we’ll also re-fill water bottles at the spring.

The distance will be 56km. The shortcut option is only 17km and bypasses the butter tarts as well as the most scenic portion of the ride along Rice Lake. If you want to catch the scenery and the butter tarts and ride a shorter distance, use the comments section below to seek out other like-minded individuals and together you could make a plan of your own.

Start time: 9:00am
Start location: The Mill Restaurant parking lot

Ride Leader: Vivian VandenHazel
Short Ride Leader: We still need a volunteer!

Ride: Thursday July 28th: “Butter Tart Run” 9am

56km and it’s going to be a hot one, so fill up your bottles with lots of ice. We’ll also re-fill water bottles at the spring in Harwood. If you plan to do a shorter distance, please review the map and make an independent plan accordingly.
