Level 3/4 Group Ride: Wednesday July 10

This Wednesday we’ll do a combined Level 3 & 4 ride again. This means that both levels will start from the same location and the first 20km is the same for both but:
Level 3: rides 39km in a group at a casual pace with a ride leader and a sweep.
Level 4: leaves 5 minutes earlier, rides at a faster pace and completes an extra 18km. There will be a ride leader but no sweep.

It’s a great opportunity to set out with the Level 4 crowd if you feel up to it and then drop back with the Level 3 group ride if you decide to.

Ride Leader: Allan Dennis (L3), and Anita Macklin (L4)
Start time: 6:30 (L4) and 6:35 (L3)
Sunset: 8:54pm

Level 3 Group Ride: Monday July 8

Correction notice: The start point for tonight’s ride was previously incorrect. The correct location is the Cobourg Community Centre.

Monday Night Group Ride! This is a straight-up Level 3 which means group ride with a leader and a sweep, riding at a casual pace, making sure the group stays together. (Note there is no Level 4 option on the Monday ride). Start in Cobourg at the Community Centre, we’ll ride up past St. Anne’s and back down Lyle St., which is always a lot of fun!

Level 3 and 4 ride: Wednesday July 3

NEW for July. We are trying a new format for the month of July and have Level 3 and 4s riding the same nights (Monday’s & Wednesday’s). Believe it or not, after this Wednesday the days start getting shorter!

Level 4 will depart 5mins before Level 3. Both travel the same route as far as Little Rd where Level 4s continue on with an additional 14 Km loop. Level 4s self-navigate, so be prepared with map / loaded RWGPS route. Level 3 is a normal a group ride.

We are well into the cycling season and the legs are hopefully feeling a little stronger and a little more confident to take on a few more hills. This is a great route but we’ll not lie there are couple of good climbs. We’ll be cycling as a group, looking out for each other as always and we’ll not leave anyone alone! There is a detour we can take if necessary – once we see how we are all doing. This is the Old Sapper’s first lead of 2019 so come and support the poor old fella!
