Since the Tour de France is underway, we’ll call this one the “Tour de Baltimore”. It’s a 43.3km route with an option for making it 35.5km. Either route will take in much of the scenery and make for a pleasant ride on those beautiful roads that seem to surround Baltimore.
Start time: 9:00am
Start location: The Mill Restaurant in Cobourg

I’ll be there for the ride please print a map from the link if you are joining us, see you then!
Please be very Careful on the little piece of HWY #45. I will not ride this piece of road.
If you’re talking about the section going over the 401, I agree. This is one of the most dangerous areas for cyclists. Unless you drop down into town, there isn’t an easy way to get across 45 above the 401. Effectively, there is only one safe route north out of Cobourg – and that is Ontario St. It’s just sometimes difficult to get to from the east!
Hickerson Road to Meyers road is much more Scary. Even walking this part of the 45 is Dangerous.
I plan to be there in spite of the forecasted hugh of 37 C – yikes!
I plan to be there. Looking forward to the steam bath.
Hi…why have a sauna? I will be there.
Will be there…sweatin’ buckets!
It’s gonna be a hot one! So hot in fact, that I’d like to suggest a route change and head out to Colborne via Wicklow beach…..it’s flat, not hilly, we can create our own breeze by riding fast, and best of all we can re-load with some ice cold drinks from the Colborne store. What do you all think?
Starting of course from the original starting point, The Mill.
What’s wrong with the original route, as planned?
Nothing wrong with the original route, it’s just my thinking out loud and throwing in my two cents worth.
I’m taking the CanBike course so can’t be there-have fun and stay cool!
I just drove along Speechly Road (seeing if I thought I could handle this route for joining your group Sunday)- they are in midst of laying a thick coat of fresh gravel there and along Scots Line. The person I spoke to said it wouldn’t be repaved for a month. don’t know if this affects your choice for tonight at all.
12:00 noon: We just finished the ride and indeed Speechly Road is not at all suitable for cycling. We went through it nonetheless and it was unpleasant and our bikes as well as ourselves were covered in mud as a result. We discussed a few detours for Sunday, so we can avoid it.
