(Levels 2, 3, and 4) Sunday July 18 Ride: EASY 42km or 102km

If you are looking for some easy distance riding, this one is for you! There are two distances to choose from: 42km or 102km. Everyone starts in Colborne at the Keeler Center and rides to the lighthouse at Presqu’ile Park. Upon exiting the park, the 42km group will return to Colborne while the 102km group will continue on into Prince Edward County. The 102km crowd can choose to do a nice & easy Level 3 pace, or you can choose to give it all you got and go at a fast Level 4 pace. We will organize into groups according to pace and distance at the start of the ride.

In case you missed it…onion rings and ice cream

We had a fabulous ride today! Perfect weather, not too warm, overcast, and a great group of people! We rode together, pausing at St. Annes to determine who will ride long, and who will take the express route back. Three went on to ice cream with a side of onion rings at the County Road Cafe in Centreton. We just couldn’t help ourselves… It felt like the perfect Sunday, and hey, the onion rings were fantastic! It was such fun all the way around! For those of you who haven’t been there, their food is super! And there are plenty of picnic tables to enjoy. The owner/operator was so appreciative that we stopped by, and thrilled to have us there! We have plenty more rides this coming week—check out the NHCC Ride Calendar for all the details.
