Monday, August 29th: Evening Novice Ride (7:00pm)

This is the last time that the Monday ride will start at 7:00 due to the shorter days, and make sure the ride is done by around 8:00.

Start time: 7:00
Start location: Donegan Park
Route: To be determined
Ride Leader: Randy Albon

Please indicate by commenting if you will come out for the ride.


Ride: Sunday Aug. 28th: Wicklow Beach and Back (9am)

Like Thursday’s ride, this ride is an “out and back” ride. Riders can turn around at any point to make the ride shorter than the planned 36km—or extend the ride to Colborne or beyond if you want more distance.

We’ll trying something new—there won’t be a ride leader. Instead, riders should plan to break off into smaller riding groups of similar skill, ability, and desired distance.

Start time: 9:00am
Start location: Donegan Park
Route map and directions: “Wicklow Beach” route map

Please comment below if you are coming and also indicate your anticipated distance (or time) so that others can also do a little planning ahead and hopefully everyone will have someone to ride with!

Ride: Thursday Aug. 25th: Wicklow Beach and Back (9am)

This ride is an “out and back” ride, which means that it will allow for people to turn around at any point to make the ride shorter if desired. The entire route is only 36km, but if anyone is interested in extending it, please mention it below.

We’ll try something different this time. We won’t assign a “leader” this time. After starting, riders should plan instead to break off into smaller riding groups of similar skill and ability.

Wednesday evening Advanced ride: Aug. 24th (6:00pm)

The days are getting shorter, so we’ll ride at 6:00pm and we’ll do the short version of the “Tour de Baltimore” which is 35.5km. Anita will be away this week, so there won’t actually be a ride “leader” this time. Please print out your own maps and bring them with you.

Start time: 6:00pm
Start location: The Mill parking lot
Route map and directions: “Tour de Baltimore” (The short route, 35km)

Please indicate by commenting if you will come out for the ride so other riders know how many to expect.

Monday, August 22nd: Evening Novice Ride (7:00pm)

Last week was a washout, so let’s hope for better this Monday. The days are getting shorter, but there’s still plenty of opportunity to get some rides in. We’ll meet at The Mill restaurant parking lot and head out for a little country ride. A few hills, but nothing too crazy. We need a ride leader for this one. Anyone willing to take this on?

Start time: 7:00
Start location: The Mill Restaurant, Cobourg
Route: To be determined
Ride Leader: Glen Fitchett

Please indicate by commenting if you will come out for the ride.


Ride: Sunday Aug. 21st: “Bewdley and Back” (9am)

Just like on Thursday, we’ll go up to Bewdley, stop at the store there to load up on refreshments and then head back. There will be an optional shorter route if you are interested. Ride leaders are needed. Anyone is welcome to volunteer—all you need to do is be familiar with the route, and lead the way! (Don’t worry, you don’t need to always be in front either)

Start time: 9:00am
Start location: The Mill Restaurant, Cobourg
Route map and directions: “Bewdley and Back” route map

Long Ride Leader (51km): Vivian (Thanks for volunteering!)
Short Ride Leader (31km): We need a volunteer still

Please comment below if you are coming. Please mention if you are able to lead the ride too.

Ride: Thursday Aug. 18th: “Bewdley and Back” (9am)

We’ll go up to Bewdley, stop at the store there to load up on refreshments and then head back. There will be both a long route (54.5 km) and an optional shorter route. If you are willing to be the ride leader, it would be much appreciated if you would mention it by commenting below. We’ll need one for both the long and the short routes. Really, there’s nothing to it…..just be familiar with the map, and lead the way!
