Ride: Thursday June 23: “Butter Tart Run” 10am

Butter Tarts in Harwood! That’s where we’re going. We’ll start at The Mill and head up toward Harwood where we’ll take a break at the local store. They have awesome butter tarts so be sure to bring a little moolah with you. The estimated long distance will be about 60km. There will also be options for a shorter route if desired. However, if you take the short route you’ll miss the butter tarts!

Start time: 10:00am
Start location: The Mill Restaurant parking lot

Please comment below if you are coming and if you are interested in  riding the short or long route. We’ll need volunteers for leading the rides as well. Please indicate if you are willing to lead.


  1. Hi Anita – I hope to come on Thursday but doubt that I can do the 60k so I would like to know more about the short route.

    Thanks ,

    • Hi Brenda
      The shorter route will probably be about 16 or 17km and there will certainly be some hills which can’t be avoided but if you want to give it a try there will be someone to take the short route with you. Usually we have a volunteer to lead the shorter route but if none materializes it will likely be me!

  2. I may ride the short route.and will bring a Freewheeler map of the Short Rice Lake Raminbleie 63k with one adjustment
    in Canbourne. Anita if you have a chance you could post this map. This route avoids Williamson hill. The short route is 25 k but the return ride has mostly downhill grades.

  3. Looks a lot like rain outside……but the Accuweather website shows hour by hour weather and it shows mostly cloudy this morning and thunderstorms at 1:00 and 2:00. Let’s hope for the best!

  4. As much as I was looking forward to the butter tart, I don’t think I want to chance riding in the rain (might melt..)

    • Good think I was scared off by the weather report-as soon as I decided not to ride, it started pouring sunshine! ;P
