A ride in the Rice Lake area for this coming Sunday has been proposed. This route starts and ends in Bewdley and is a lovely route that takes riders through Harwood. It’s 47k but for those interested in going a little shorter, there’s a “shortcut” available to make it 36k. Page 1 of the route information describes how to shorten it to 36k.
Looking to go really long? How about 106k?
There may be a few looking for a real challenge. There’s a route that is 106k that also starts and ends in Bewdley. (although you won’t be with the main group of 47k riders)
Since the waterfront tends to become congested, how about meeting at the arena? Rhino’s Roadhouse presents an option for lunch after the ride for those who are interested.
47k or 36k: Link to the “Heavenly Harwood” route map
106k: Link to the Bewdley route map
Start time: 10:00
This sounds like an excellent plan. I plan to ride the 47 km route, one that I really like. Parking at the arena (very easy to find and less than 1 km from the waterfront) is a good idea on a Sunday since, as you say, the waterfront can get very crowded.
Off camping for a couple of days. Consequently, I will not be there this Sunday. Just too many things to do 🙂
I would like to ride the 106 km. Anyone interested
Just finished the route around rice lake. I would be very willing to ride again.
I will post it on our facebook page maybe others would like to ride. We have some looking for a more relaxed pace.
County road 24 was under construction and we avoided it. Straight up 45 NOt too bad on a Sunday but sill a little unnerving.
Straight along County 9 and 29 then North at Warkworth is an alternative if necessary.
I might join you for the 47k ride. I will confirm closer to the day.
I’m a little late to confirm, but I will be there.
im in for the 47 k
I’m in for the 47 k ride as well
I did a long ride today so Harold and I will be riding the 47 km ride Sunday, see you then!
I will ride out from Baltimore. If I am late don’t wait as I will catch up on Cavan Road.
If you don’t see me at ll don’t worry as this is not absolute yet.
Have a great ride and don’t forget to water up in Harwood.
We are in for the 47k ride. See you all at the arena!
I am in for the 47 km. as well. Is the meeting time 10 a.m. as usual?
10:00 AM at the Bewdley arena. To get to the arena, head west on Main Street from the waterfront for about 500 m. I now plan to be there!
Our ride for the Garmin. Sorry I forgot to reset, this includes the ride home. Just subtract lap 4.

Great pics Jamie…thanks. We surely have one of the nicest regions to cycle in right at our doorsteps.
