August 12th Saturday Morning All Levels Ride

This all levels ride will head east along the Waterfront Trail, veering north east of Grafton, as far as each rider would like to go.

Level 1 riders can stay in town or venture out to Archers Road and back.

Level 2’s may wish to go as far as Wicklow Beach Road, whereas 3’s and 4’s may complete the 80 km  loop at their respective speeds and usual rules (e.g. No drop, frequent stops).

One of those stops may be at Lola’s Coffee shop in Brighton.

Please leave a comment if you are coming, and indicate the level and distance you’re hoping for, it often encourages others who would like to come out but don’t know whether they’ll have someone to ride with.

After all, most of us join a club to ride with others! As it’s an all levels Sunday ride, there won’t be leaders for each group.

Date: Saturday August 12, 2017
Time: 9:00
Meeting Location: Donegan Park
Levels: all
Ride Organizer: Roberto

Thursday Aug. 10: Evening Ride, Level 3/4

Everyone thinks the Level 4 ride is super crazy fast and hard, and we’re here to tell you it’s just not! This is a groovy Level 4 ride, but also one that Level 3s should also be able to manage if you don’t mind a few hills! This route has those rolling hills of Danforth, but also some really great downhills, especially Lyle St. in Grafton where you can yell “yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaa” while going down. Two distances to choose from, both starting at Cycle Transitions. The deciding point about which distance you’ll take doesn’t happen until we are around the 18km point, near St. Anne’s spa. Note the 6:00 start time!

Start time: 6:00pm
Ride Leader: Anita Macklin
Start Location: Cycle Transitions parking lot on D’Arcy St.
