Century Ride: 160k or 100k on Sunday Sept. 1st

This is it, the Big Distance ride for our club. Choose your distance, make sure your bike is in good working order, and be ready to ride far! Both routes will depart from the Arena on Furnace St. and ride all the way to the lighthouse in Presqu’ile Park, then the 100k riders head back to Cobourg while the 160k riders proceed out the Park and then do a 60k loop around the Lake Consecon area before heading back to Cobourg.

Be prepared! It’s essential to have a tire changing kit with a spare tube, a little $$ in case you need something along the way, I.D., route map, and a PLAN. A plan includes having a phone number of someone to call in case you need to bail out, some trail mix or something in your pocket for food, or an idea about where you will stop for lunch and with whom.

It’s a long way to go. Plan to set aside your day for it, ride at a comfortable pace. Use the commenting feature here to let others know you are riding and try to “buddy up” with others who will be riding around your pace.

Start time: 9:00am
Start location: The Arena on Furnace St.

  1. Planning on riding the 160k route providing we have good weather. If the weather turns for the worse, will do a shorter ride. See ya’ all soon!

  2. I may ride the 100k tomorrow, but I’m looking to see if there are some riders who are wanting to go at a more leisurely pace than the group 4 riders.

  3. Have a wonderful ride. Unfortunately due to some circumstances, regrettably I will be sitting on the sidelines tomorrow.
